Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam has spoken of a renewed sense of optimism at Anfield since Brendan Rodger’s appointment, reports the club
Despite a Carling Cup final victory last season, a poor league campaign saw Liverpool finish in 8th position, prompting the board to dismiss Kenny Dalglish and install former Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers – with that comes the Northern Irishman’s attacking philosophy that was highly commended last season.
Charlie Adam, a summer signing of former boss Dalglish, has spoken to the club’s website ahead of their pre-season tour of North America and said of Brendan Rodgers’ appointment: “The table never lies and we simply weren’t good enough to get higher than eighth. But that’s gone now. We’ve got a new manager, who has new ideas – and the feeling here is that we can do much, much better.
The 26-year-old will line up alongside new signing Fabio Borini, who worked with Rodgers at Chelsea and Swansea, and the former Blackpool player believes that given the time to implement his idea’s Liverpool will significantly improve saying: “Of course, things don’t happen ¬overnight in football. But if you have the right ¬balance, the right group of ¬players and you work hard, anything can happen.
Borini became Liverpool’s first signing of the season, having missed out on winger Gylfi Sigurdsson who opted not to join his former boss however with several players capable of playing Brendan Rodger’s way linked with a move to Anfield. There also seems to be speculation over Andy Carroll’s future at the club.
The Former Swansea manager has always favoured small, quick strikers rather than big target man, and the 39-year-old confirmed Carroll’s loan availability.
