â€śStewart was arguably a player I didnâ€™t want to lose to be honest,â€ť Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.
â€śItâ€™s one where after a difficult start he showed in the second half of last season what he could do and was in the team nearly every game. I thought he got better and better.
â€śThroughout pre-season he played a prominent role and then towards the end of pre-season he had to be sold in order for us to maybe invest in other players.
â€śThat was the disappointment really because when he was called upon he had showed up really well.
â€śHe ended up moving on and heâ€™s a good guy. I like Stewart a lot. Every time Iâ€™ve seen West Ham this season he has been one of their best players.â€ť
