They will discuss a disappointing campaign that saw Liverpool slip from second in the Barclays Premier League last year to a distant sixth this season.
Werner and director Mike Gordon are expected to arrive in Liverpool today from America and speak to Rodgers tomorrow. The visit will also enable Werner to attend a Premier League shareholders’ meeting and have discussions about the development of the club’s academy.
It is understood the two men will meet Rodgers to discuss the failings of the last nine months and, in particular, the way the season fell away, culminating in an embarrassing 6-1 defeat at Stoke on the final day.
Rodgers is not thought to be under threat of imminent dismissal. He has credit in the bank for the way he led Liverpool to touching distance of the title last year, even if his three-year tenure at the club is yet to deliver a trophy.
Any thoughts some fans had of seeing former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp installed at Anfield soon were dashed yesterday. The German declared he is taking a break from the game, saying: ‘After seven intense and emotional years, it’s a good idea to have a rest before I take on a new challenge.’ – Daily Mail
