‘We have a manager who inspires’


    Reds head of performance Glen Driscoll has served under a host of experienced managers, but believes nobody demands more from his players than current Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.


    Driscoll has previously worked under the likes of Jose Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti, Guus Hiddink and Luiz Felipe Scolari, during an eight year stint at Chelsea.

    He joined the Reds backroom staff in the summer of August 2012, having first worked with Rodgers a decade earlier at the Reading academy.

    “We have a manager who inspires and demands more from his players than any other manager I’ve seen,” Driscoll told Liverpoolfc.com.

    “Tactically, he demands both a relentless, high energy press, but also an electric transition and counter-attack. Most teams do one or the other.”

    The Reds have been praised for the high pressing game Rodgers has ordered them to play this season, having scored 70 Premier League goals already – more than any other side in the division.

    Driscoll revealed how the nature of Rodgers training means he expects the team to improve physically as the season reaches it’s conclusion.

    “The application of each player to fulfil their high energy and dynamic roles further improves their fitness and ability to achieve these physical peaks every game,” explained Driscoll.

    “It has this cascade affect that Brendan Rodgers’ teams seem to have. They get better and better as the season progresses.

    “It starts with the mentality to comply with these demands, which in turn physically conditions the players to further excel. This bodes well for the run-in. We are in great condition.”
