Managerial Style

Rodgers' policy is for the team to keep possession of the ball. With the ball at their feet, they can play a flowing passing game with the ball in constant motion. On the defensive front, he likes his team to put a lot of pressure on the opposing team.

Back when he managed Liverpool, Steven Gerrard described Rodgers' one-on-one management as the best he has seen.
