Brendan Rodgers to benefit from first season

Brendan RodgersBrendan Rodgers says this season has been a big learning curve for him as Liverpool boss as he hopes for further improvements.

The Reds, in the Northern Irishman’s first season in charge, are set to finish seventh – one place higher than last term – after a campaign that has shown plenty of promising signs but also provided a fair share of frustration.

The former Swansea boss believes the experience he has gained this season will stand in him in good stead moving forward and he is confident, with the right summer additions, Liverpool can move further up the table.

“This year has provided a great learning curve for me and I look back and see that it was learning that I needed,” he told the Liverpool Echo.

“I knew the expectancy of the club but going into next season, I am a much better prepared manager for that.

“We want to make significant improvements next year in the points total because the reality is we are 30 points behind the leaders and 11 points behind the top four.

“But I’ve seen enough and if we improve our mentality in the summer – by signing players who have that consistent winning mentality – we can then improve again, like we have done in the second half of the season.”
