Brendan Rodgers is open to the idea of managing abroad. The Northern Irishman has been out of work since leaving Liverpool earlier this season and has revealed he is open-minded about where he manages next.

Rodgers, 42, has been linked with a move back to his former club Swansea City. However, he has also admitted to being attracted by the prospect of coaching overseas.

"It's something I would consider," Rodgers, who speaks Spanish, told Sky Sports. "I've had a few offers since I've been out, to go abroad and also at home. But I just want to find the time to recover well and make sure the motivation is renewed when I go back in again."

The Liverpool boss – who has spent time with his family and travelling since leaving the Anfield club – admitted his overarching priority was to find a club that matched his own ambitions.

"It can be wherever, as long as it is an exciting project to get into and the club wants to work together and build something. I'd look forward to that. But, for me, I think wherever you go you have to go to win," he said.

"It doesn't matter where you go, whatever country it is, you have to be and want to be in with a chance of winning. It is something we went so close to at Liverpool and being around that is something that really drives you."

Rodgers said he hopes to have secured a new job by the summer. "I had a brilliant experience at Liverpool – it's an incredible football club but I've come away from it, taken a bit of time out and I'll look forward to the next challenge. Hopefully, come the summertime, I can get back into it," he shared.
