Rodgers: City will be the benchmark

LiverpoolFC.TV - 3 часа 31 минута назад

Brendan Rodgers has no qualms about the prospect of taking on league champions Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in just the second game of the new season, even though he admits they'll be the benchmark for 2014-15.

The Reds were narrowly pipped to the title by City on the final day of last term, losing out by two points as the campaign concluded in May.

When the new season fixtures were released last month, the two teams face off once more in just the second game; however, Rodgers doesn't mind when his side take on Manuel Pellegrini's men.

"I'm not too bothered about when we play them," he told reporters in New York. "You have to play every team twice, that's the reality.

"For us, we're happy to play them at the beginning of the season. We're playing in this tournament [International Champions Cup] and there are really good teams in it.

"When you're the champions, you rightly go into the next season as the favourites. They were the champions last year, the most consistent team - they pipped us by a couple of points - so they will be the benchmark for next season."

Ahead of that meeting, the sides will go head to head in the International Champions Cup fixture at New York's Yankee Stadium on Wednesday evening.

It'll be Liverpool's third game of their United States tour - and Rodgers feels the trip is proving highly beneficial in terms of preparations for next month's Barclays Premier League kick-off.

He said: "We were very well received when we came over here two years ago. It was my first pre-season and I absolutely loved it - it provided a great platform for our work.

"The service in America is incredible. The hotels, the training grounds - people can't do enough for you. I think that's what attracts people here - the warmth you receive when you get here.

"We as a football club have an obligation because we are Liverpool and are one of the biggest football clubs in the world. There is no hardship to come out here and reach out to some of our great supporters.

"Our concentration is always football, but we have an obligation to support and meet a lot of our great supporters over here.

"The American game has definitely improved as well. We have visited some excellent facilities since we've been here. We were at Princeton today - a brilliant facility and the pitches were superb.

"It provides a great base for teams to come, work on the field and hopefully will provide a great platform for the season going forward."

Journalists gathered at the team hotel in Manhattan were eager to gauge Rodgers's thoughts on whether he felt the tour had any kind of adverse effect on groundings for the start of the season.

"It's been very simple - we've been planning for this for six months," he said. "We haven't just turned up. We were working away six months ago.

"The main objective for us is football, that's always clear in how I work. Everything else fits around that. The balance in our trips here is very much football-based. But we have an obligation to our supporters and our partners, who support the club financially, to embrace them.

"There's no hardship. We've been to some wonderful cities. We had a few days in Chicago, which was great and we played a very good game. We were in Boston, which was brilliant, and now we have come to one of the greatest cities in the world and we look forward to being here.

"Then we'll move on finally to Charlotte. For us, it's no chore. It's been great to be here."

'We need players like Kolo Toure'

LiverpoolFC.TV - 3 часа 39 минут назад

Kolo Toure's history of winning at the highest level makes the Ivorian defender an important member of the Liverpool squad, according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

The pair combined to host a press conference from Manhattan on Tuesday ahead of the Reds' International Champions Cup fixture against Manchester City.

Toure is keen to face his former club at the Yankee Stadium in New York, and of course his brother, Yaya, in a meeting of the Barclays Premier League's top two teams last season that can be watched live on LFCTV GO.

On the eve of the match, Rodgers paid tribute to the 33-year-old for the mentality he has brought to the squad since arriving on a free transfer 12 months ago.

The boss commented: "Kolo has been an incredible player. We brought him in because he is a winner, an authentic winner.

"He's someone who doesn't play every single week but when he does play, he plays very well. Every day of his life in training, he gives his all.

"Players like Kolo and Steven [Gerrard], the older statesmen of the team, have been absolutely first class. We're hungry and ambitious; we went close last year.

"That inspires us and gives us great motivation to go on this year. That is the beauty of this group of players - it's a very hungry group because that's what we're trying to bring in."

Toure started on Sunday as Rodgers' charges claimed a victory in the second match of their United States tour, seeing off Olympiacos 1-0 at Soldier Field in Chicago.

Long-term, the No.4 is aware of the need for preparation ahead of a campaign which will include the return of Champions League football.

In the immediate future, meanwhile, the centre-back is relishing another opportunity to do battle with his sibling.

"It's going to be fun because he's a good player," he said. "I've played with him and against him. It's going to be really good; I will try to challenge him and win the game. That's what I'm going to do.

"The pre-season is great and we've been working really hard. We are preparing for the season as we want to do as well as we can.

"Every competition is going to be very important for us, so we will give our all in every game and see what we can achieve."

Rodgers: Man City will be team to beat but we have great hunger and motivation (with video)

Premier League top two from last season meet on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium, New York

Brendan Rodgers believes Manchester City will once again be the team to beat in the Premier League title race.

Liverpool went agonisingly close to ending their 24-year for a 19th top flight crown back in May when they finished two points adrift of the champions.

The clubs meet in the International Champions Cup at New York's Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night and the Reds boss believes they will both be competing for the big prizes this season.

“The champions go into the next season as favourites and rightly so,” Rodgers said.

“City were the most consistent team and they pipped us to the title by a couple of points. They will be the benchmark for us.

“I'm really looking forward to this season and hopefully we can have a similar if not more successful season.

“There is great hunger and motivation in this group to push on.

“I looked at the combinations today in training between Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert and they were exceptional.

“I think we'll see Daniel push on again this season and hopefully he can stay injury free.

“Rickie already looks very comfortable in the group and we'll also look to bring another striker in if possible.

“We have been welcomed with real warmth here in America and the facilities are excellent. This trip is going to provide us with a great platform for this season."

 

Full-back Jon Flanagan won't feature against City as a minor knee problem will keep him out of the remaining matches on the tour but Kolo Toure is expected to line up against his brother.

City midfielder Yaya Toure was linked with a move away from Eastlands this summer but the Reds centre-back always knew he would stay put.

“It's going to be really good to play against Yaya again,” he said.

“I will try to challenge him and try to win the game for my club.

“I knew Yaya was going to stay at City. Before I signed for City I told him that was the right place for him.

“He is one of the best players there and I don't think he needed to move on this year which is great for him and his club.

“Our pre-season is going great and everyone is working really hard.

“We will give our all in every game and see what we can achieve.”

BR: Sturridge can go up a level again

LiverpoolFC.TV - 4 часа 11 минут назад

Brendan Rodgers is confident his Liverpool squad have the firepower to replicate their 101-goal haul of last season once again – and backed Daniel Sturridge to improve upon his 2013-14 tally.

The striker fired 24 times in just 33 appearances last term, making him the highest English goal-getter in the Barclays Premier League.

Rodgers, though, feels Sturridge is capable of improving upon that figure this time around.

He told a press conference in Manhattan: "I looked at the combination of Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert in training today and they were exceptional; the link-up play and some of their combination play was great.

"I think you'll see Daniel go on another level again this season, with the confidence of a full campaign last year and scoring the goals he did. Hopefully he can stay injury free this season.

"We've [also] got Rickie Lambert who will get goals for us. He's starting to really get comfortable with the group.

"We've got a number of players that go and facilitate the role [of goalscoring]."

With a large squad having travelled to the United States for the pre-season tour, Rodgers is also meticulously analysing the younger members of the contingent and weighing up what they can potentially offer the first team in the coming campaign.

"I've taken a number of the young players away here to have a real close look at them," said Rodgers. "I always think it's up to the individual player, and come the end of pre-season we'll take a look at it.

"Because we bring in players and more numbers, it doesn't mean the opportunity for youth is no longer there. It's always my first look - I always look to the youth of the club and the Academy to see what we have and the players who are proving on a daily basis they have the personality, character and technique to play for Liverpool, then they get a chance.

"Jon Flanagan proved it last year, Raheem Sterling has shown it, and one or two of the other young players have come in and adapted well.

"The responsibility of their destiny is with the young player, so if they can show they are good enough, they'll get a chance."

Rodgers: How we planned transfers

LiverpoolFC.TV - 4 часа 24 минуты назад

On the day that he completed his sixth signing of the summer so far, Brendan Rodgers has explained why the business conducted by Liverpool to date has been the production of long-term planning.

Belgian international striker Divock Origi was confirmed as the latest new recruit earlier today, sealing a switch from French club Lille, where he will return on loan for the 2014-15 campaign.

The 19-year-old follows Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic and Dejan Lovren through the doors at Anfield as the boss plots competitiveness on four fronts.

"There's a strategy behind what we're doing," Rodgers explained from New York, where the Reds meet Manchester City in the International Champions Cup on Wednesday evening.

"We were talking a lot right the way through last season with the recruitment team; we knew that we had to improve the depth of our squad - it was one of the objectives for the summer.

"Clearly we weren't strong enough last year in terms of depth, numbers and quality. We had always earmarked in the summer to bring in a number of players, in the hope that we would be in the Champions League.

"That would give us the opportunity to challenge on all fronts. The players that we're bringing in have clear profiles in terms of where we want them to play and what their role is.

"We see them as young players that can really develop in the future as well. The integration into the squad is very smooth because we've got a wonderful group of players and they always make it very easy for players coming in."

The boss also revealed his intention to add another forward option to his group, if possible: "There's no doubt we will look where we can, and if we can, to bring in another striker."

Rodgers provided a glowing assessment of Origi to Liverpoolfc.com following the transfer announcement, and repeated similar sentiments at his pre-match press conference.

"We're absolutely delighted to sign him because I genuinely think he has the potential to go on and be a world-class young player," the manager enthused.

"I saw him as a young player, for the national teams coming through, I saw his quality and then saw that grow and develop to play in a World Cup, where he showed a lot of his qualities.

"It's a great signing for the football club. He's someone that could have really helped us this season; he's 19 years of age, 6ft2, he can score goals and is strong.

"But we knew part of the deal was that he is going back to Lille on loan. But the overriding feeling is that we're absolutely delighted to have a young player who potentially could be a star over the coming years."
