'I've always said that you can live without water for many days, but you can't live for a minute without hope'. That quote is courtesy of a presumably dry-throated Brendan Rodgers, assumedly hoping he would get some water soon. Rodgers has undergone the sad fate that currently befalls Roberto Martinez and Arsene Wenger, as the sheer level of press managers are forced to do ultimately mean that none of their quotes can exist in isolation, they are endlessly mocked by the echo made by intangibles like 'progress', 'project' and 'character' in the absence of any victories.
Rodgers has been chewed up and spit out by this relentless and cynical machine and is now portrayed as a parody of himself, a man bound to blind positivity in the hope that thinking favourably about things will make everything alright.
As Brendan Rodgers attempts to get back into management, he is determined to keep fit, and his personal trainer has posted a video on his Instagram of Rodgers boxing. What is most notable is not the video of Rodgers, but the copy by the trainer. Watch below, but pay attention to the part written by the trainer:
Rodgers may be back at Swansea next season, and he is bound to be in good shape upon his return.
