Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been spotted in London, according to a number of people on Twitter.

The Northern Irish manager was sacked by Liverpool in October, and replaced by German Jurgen Klopp, but football fans on Twitter claim to have seen him on the London Underground this morning wearing a suit and tie.

Saw Brendan Rodgers at Waterloo this morning. Can only presume he was on route to Chelsea for a chat about becoming the interim manager

Hmmmm. Just saw Brendan Rodgers strolling along in Holborn. Now I *wonder why* he might be down in London? #CFC

Just seen Brendan Rodgers in Leicester sqaure @SkySportsNewsHQ what could this mean ? Chelsea lol?

One person snapped a pic of somebody who looks quite a lot like Brendan Rodgers (from behind) at Waterloo.

Spotted: Brendan Rodgers at Waterloo, dressed very smartly. Job interview in London? #CFC #QPR

And somebody else posted a photo of the former Liverpool manager using the Central line.

Where's BR off to this morning? #fulham? #qpr? Haha

It's either a *very* good lookalike, or it's the former Liverpool boss.

It comes after another disastrous weekend for Jose Mourinho at Chelsea — losing 1-0 to Stoke — which has led to intense speculation in the media that the Chelsea boss is about to lose his job.

Rodgers was part of Mourinho's staff during the Portuguese manager's first spell at the club, and he has been heavily linked with taking over from Mourinho at Chelsea on an interim basis – similar to when Rafa Benitez became interim manager in 2012.

That said, London club QPR are also looking for a new permanent manager, after Neil Warnock recently took charge of the club on an interim basis.

And of course, Rodgers could just be taking a well-earned city break in London after five years of constant employment at Swansea and Liverpool.

A reverse image search of the above picture suggests that it has never been publicly posted online before this date, and therefore suggests it could indeed have been taken today.

And the poster of the image, a QPR fan from London, claims it was taken today.

One possibility is that Brendan Rodgers could have been en route to a television or radio appearance as a pundit or guest, though there is no Monday Night Football this evening.

We'll have to wait and see...

Of course, parody Twitter account @DeludedBrendan is obviously very happy with this development and has already jumped on the opportunity to back the Chelsea rumours.

  1. Do you think Rodgers would do a better job at Chelsea than Jose Mourinho?

    Nope. Nope. Nope.
    He couldn't do much worse.
    Yeah, he is underrated.
