Liverpool boss Rodgers relishing Europa League experience

Brendan Rodgers does not want Liverpool’s time in the Europa League to end, as the manager is enjoying his first taste of European football far too much, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Rodgers has never before led a side into Europe and aims to extend Liverpool’s involvement in the competition until after Christmas by getting the result they need against Udinese on Thursday. The Reds require at least a point from the Serie A side, who are already eliminated, to be sure of progress to the knockout rounds.

This has been my first opportunity to work in Europe as a manager. I, along with my staff and players, have enjoyed every minute of it - it has been a wonderful experience, and we all want to qualify,” Rodgers said. He added: “ I am not crying that we have got games on a Thursday and a Sunday. I think it has been brilliant.

Rodgers also insisted he would pick a team more than capable of beating Udinese, who are currently ninth in their domestic league. Udinese won the first meeting between the sides at Anfield by the odd goal in five, and to ensure a repeat does not take place, Rodgers is expected to pick the likes of Pepe Reina, Martin Skrtel, Joe Allen and Luis Suarez, some of whom have featured only sporadically in the competition thus far.
