Liverpool's owners are losing patience with manager Roy Hodgson and have been worried by the severe breakdown in relationship between him and the club's supporters after his recent outburst, according to the Guardian.
Goal.com UK poll results revealed that Hodgson's popularity is at an all-time low, with only Manuel Pellegrini receiving less votes than the current boss when asked who should be manager of the club in January.
The majority of readers voted that out of work Frank Rijkaard would be the ideal replacement after Hodgson slammed Reds fans for failing to get behind him and the team after the 1-0 defeat to Wolves on Wednesday.
Liverpool are performing well below expectations in the Premier League this season and after the latest disappointing home defeat, tensions between the fans and Hodgson are at breaking point where supporters had previously expressed their desire to see the 63-year-old leave.
Owners John W. Henry and Tom Werner of New England Sports Ventures are reported to be willing to give Hodgson time, but are seemingly running out of patience with the former Fulham boss as the defeats continue to stack up.
