Former Manchester City defender Kolo Toure is a big fan of Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers' style of play.

Toure has signed for the Reds on a Bosman.

"The football Liverpool play is amazing," Toure told "They build from the back, which I love.

"I played against Liverpool at the beginning of last season and it was really hard. The passing of the ball was great.

"The club is improving, the manager is doing a really great job and I think this season is going to be better for Liverpool, definitely.

"The manager's plan is simple: he wants good footballers, but good men as well, who can bring the club to the top. You do that through hard work and I'm here to work really hard and listen to anything he tells me to improve the team."
