Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson is confident the club’s new owners will not make any snap decisions about his position.
The former Fulham boss has endured a difficult start at Anfield and has already been confronted by rumours that his job is on the line.
Sunday’s 2-1 home win over Blackburn Rovers was Liverpool’s first win in eight matches and just a second in the Premier League this season.
Prior to the victory against Blackburn, there had been speculation that Hodgson had just two games to save his job, but he believes the new owners, New England Sports Ventures (NESV), will give himomore time to prove himself.
“Mass media talk these days says ‘Lose two games and let’s sack the coach and start all over again’,” he said after the win.
“I divorce myself from all of that, it is not something I feel among the players or the staff.
“I’m not certain the people here (NESV) have that type of mindset, they are top sportspeople.
“They took over the Boston Red Sox, who weren’t doing very well, and turned them into a champion team.”
A number of NESV representatives were in attendance to see Sunday’s win, although principal owner John W Henry remained in the United States because of illness.
He added: “There were a lot of people here from the organisation here so I’m pretty sure his (Henry’s) phone was buzzing and he’ll be pretty happy with the performance.”
