Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said he knows the pressure is on him and will resign if asked to by the club’s owners.

The Reds lost 6-1 at Stoke on the final day as Mark Hughes’ side ran riot in the first half, racing to a 5-0 lead and ending the contest after just 45 minutes.

Rodgers has come under criticism as the club have failed to match last year’s campaign, when they came agonisingly close to winning the Premier League title, but he insists he is the right man for the job.

Asked if he understood the pressure was building on him, the Northern Irishman said: “Yes, absolutely. I’ve always said that if the owners want me to go, then I go. It’s as simple as that.

“But I still feel I’ve got a lot to offer the club. A lot has happened this year which has made the job difficult, but I totally understand that.”
