Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has again talked up manager Brendan Rodgers' first season in charge.

Werner believes the future is bright under Rodgers and is prepared to back him in the transfer market.

He said: “I think Brendan has made remarkable progress. He’s a great strategist and has shown strong leadership as he has led the team through this season.

“Obviously there is disappointment that we didn’t finish higher in the table but the team has certainly improved as the season has gone on. To see the new additions in January, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, perform so well has been very positive to see.

“We scored a lot more goals than last season. The 38 away league goals was the club’s highest number in a league season since 1990.

“The club is definitely moving in the right direction under Brendan.

“Our intention is to strengthen the squad further this summer and as owners we’re very optimistic and excited about the future.”
