Rodgers Praises Reds Ownership Ahead of Anfield Visit

See you tomorrow
It’s midseason and it’s time for the boss to check in; no, we’re not talking about Brendan Rodgers, but Liverpool principal owner John W. Henry. The American businessman will make his first trip to Anfield since appointing the Northern Irishman to the Reds dugout, taking in their clash with Aston Villa tomorrow along with Chairman and business partner Tom Werner.

With his side sitting in fourth place going into the weekend, Rodgers has nothing to worry about when it comes to job security, but a little bit of glad handing never hurt anyone. “John was a big influence on me coming to the club” the Northern Irishman told the Liverpool ECHO ahead of the weekend when asked about the influence of Henry and Werner. “They have been absolutely outstanding in that commitment in every way. It’s refreshing in the modern game.”

After initially rejecting the advances of the Merseyside club, Rodgers took a meeting with FSG in Boston, and after pressing the Reds hierarchy, the rest is history. “The first time I met him I needed to know the expectation. I just felt it was important in terms of how I work” said the Anfield boss. “I wanted to come to somewhere where I could build something.”

Rodgers has kept the Merseyside club in the title race since the word GO, and with a target of a return to the lucrative fields of the Champions League, he’s certainly been living up to expectations. A thin squad has held the Reds back at points though and this will surely be a topic of conversation when the two meet. Liverpool have been linked with a number of targets since the January transfer window opened and it’s high time they wrapped up a couple of signings.

Over to you, Mr. Henry.

    Why praise them,when their making us live off scraps ;-( Why is Liverpool being forced to buy cheap garbage players ( Because low wages and low signing on fees ) And how long do we need to watch Rodgers not play them,because you all know he has zero faith in them ( Or he would play them more ) And I’m not buying into give them time,or for the future BULL CRAP !!! The reason we won’t get Champions League Football is because are midfield doesn’t protect the back four enough or score enough…

    If by garbage players you mean youthful talent that can be developed, then I’m happy they’re cheap.

    Youthful talent that can be developed !!! I might be wrong but these type of players aren’t going too get Liverpool football club to the promised land ( Which is Champions League Football !!! I just can’t see it.Do you truely believe are midfield scores enough goals CDS…

    You keep rabbiting on about us not getting Champions League football, but we’ve only dropped out of the top four a handful of times this season, only to immediately return.

    Ye of little faith; long term planning is important. We’re not Manchester City or Chelsea rich…

    Hendo and Philly are just in bad form when it comes to shooting, just wait and we eventually they will come good.

    If we kept Jonjo he could be as good as Hendo is now next year…

    I wanted us to get Matic but the very idea that we could win a bidding war against the blues is a bit silly.
