Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is enjoying his football under manager Brendan Rodgers.
He’s been impressed by Rodgers’ methods and, in particular, how the manager has sought to integrate new players into the squad.
He told NBC sports: “Working for Brendan has been brilliant.
“He’s a great manager, he’s very hands-on, works very much with the players, and his man-management skills are good.
“He even speaks Spanish to a lot of the lads who can’t speak English. He’s tactically clever and sees things. And he always wants to improve. He’s always watching games, looking to tweak things differently. He’s a very, very clever manager.
“My aim for this season is to settle in as well as I can to the group and contribute as much as possible to getting into the top four again. And hopefully win a bit of silverware. We feel that if we keep working hard, a really good performance is around the corner.”
