Brendan Rodgers Character XI For The 2018 FIFA World Cup: Can Any Team Stop Them

Why Brendan Rodgers? You say.

Here is the proof, you decide!


Brendan GODgers


When quizzed about his achievements, GODgers stated: ‘As much as I loved my time at Liverpool it’s clear they were holding me back. Celtic have allowed me to show my GOD-like potential as a manager.’

When making his Character XI, GODgers decided to go with his favoured 4-3-3 formation to fully utilise the God-like brilliance of his pass-and-move philosophy.

4-3-3 Brendan GODgers Character XI For The 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Here is how Brendan justified his selections for the upcoming tournament.


GK: Simon Mignolet 

‘Give me eleven Mignolets and I will give you the Russian World Cup.’

RB: Kolo Toure 

‘Kolo kolo kolo kolo… KOLO TOURE! I still can’t get it out of my head.’

CB: Dejan Lovren

‘When LOVEren is in the air, nothing can stop us!’

CB: Mamadou Sakho

‘When Klopp asked me about Sakho’s inexcusable punctuality, I told him that habits change into character.’

LB: Alberto Moreno

‘I pride myself in outscoring my opponents in every fixture which is why I ask Moreno to concede penalties every now and then. Why win 1-0 when you can win 5-4!? It makes my team…. Strive For Greatness.’


CM: ‘Jumbo’ Character Joe Allen –

‘My philosophy catches the ATTENTION but his character catches the HEART.’

CM: Regular ‘Joe Allen’ 

‘75% of Earth is covered by water, the rest of it is covered by my wee boy, Joe Allen.’

CM: Small ‘Welsh Xavi’ –

‘His crisp, one-yard passes has the power to break down any defence, most of all his own.’


RS: Oussama Assaidi

‘Assaidi is a wonderful character. I still stand by my decision to turn down Mo Salah in 2014. He would never have made it in the team ahead of Oussama Assaidi, Victor Moses and Joe Allen. By rejecting him I’ve made him the player he is today.’


ST: Rickie Lambert

‘If you take away just one thing from my legendary tenure at Liverpool, remember this… I replaced the guile of El Pistelero with the head of Rickie Freakin’ Lambert. Enough said!’

LS: Victor Moses –

‘Like his namesake parted the Red Sea, Victor Moses parted defences when he was under my guidance at Liverpool. I don’t know what Antonio Conte is thinking… playing such a wonderful character out of position at Stamford Bridge.’

Note: Obviously this is a work of fiction. The disclaimer is so given so that we are not bombarded on twitter.
