Brendan Rodgers: I need to regain Liverpool’s trust

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers feels that he needs to regain Liverpool fans’ trust back as he kicks off his fourth season in charge at Anfield.

The Northern Irishman is determined to bounce back after a disappointing 2014-15 that concluded in embarrassing fashion in May when the Merseyside club suffered a 6-1 battering from the Potters.

“I never take for granted the support I have had here,” Brendan Rodgers told reporters.

“I also understand the disappointment of last year. I’m sure, after a game like Stoke, there was huge disappointment.

“Of course I have always been the one to take responsibility and rightly so. The anger goes towards the manager and I accept that.

“Yes, I need to regain their trust again. It has been an incredible journey since I came in here and it is an absolute privilege to manage this club and have the supporters behind us but, of course, you have to do well to earn that support and I know I need to earn that again.”

Liverpool kick off their Premier League campaign tomorrow against Stoke City at Britannia Stadium.
