“I have players behind me and around me”, he was quoted as saying by the Liverpool website. He’s come in for huge money, and the fans were hardly unanimous in their support of the deal.
Werner believes the big Belgian striker will give Liverpool a significant return on their investment.
Player to Watch: Roberto Firmino.
You may call me the product of one too many head injuries, but, I do not care.
Generation Next: Joe Gomez.
Rodgers remains insistent, though, that his sacking was not on the agenda when he met with Mike Gordon, who essentially runs the club, ahead of Liverpool’s end of season review in May.
The aim: Top four and a trophy.
Stoke take on Liverpool a mere 76 days after they crushed the Reds 6-1 with that never-to-be-forgotten curtain closer to last season’s worthy efforts. That was also the first time Adam managed to beat his former club and prove something to Rodgers. We are a young team, but we have brought in quality.
Werner is confident Brendan Rodgers’ squad is well equipped to last the pace after the arrival of seven new signings.
He further added that he is looking to thrive under pressure and make his presence felt at Anfield.
Brendan Rodgers has made a return to the Premier League’s top four Liverpool’s primary aim this season.
Now there are no more excuses.
The Reds had a disappointing 2014/15 campaign, which saw them finish in sixth place outside the Champions League places. With the club’s two highest goalscorers from last year – Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling – moving on, Firmino will have to be just as productive for his new side.
“They now look a bit more robust in terms of the players they’ve gone for, like James Milner and Christian Benteke”. “We’ll certainly be better than we were there last season, that’s for sure”.
“I have confidence in how I work”.
“He is someone I admired from the outside for a long time”. Ings, Origi and Sturridge will score more than Rickie Lambert, Fabio Borini and Mario Balotelli, so the goals problem will be solved.
OPENING day results tend to be the hardest to predict. New signings are still being bedded in, managers don’t know their best sides, and summer tournaments mean that not all players have had the same level of training.
We still have Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson who are only getting better and Emre Can in midfield will be like a new signing. He provided the assist to Glen Johnson’s winning goal on 87 minutes, and Dalglish said: “Charlie only endorsed what we thought when we signed him”. It was compounded by their late season slump that saw them humiliated 6-1 on the final day of last season at the Britannia Stadium. The media and fans will seize any opportunity to present defeats as confirmation of the manager’s inadequacy and dismiss wins as a stay of execution for a manager who is simply out of his depth.
