Liverpool skipper Gerrard: Rodgers just phenomenal

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has hailed manager Brendan Rodgers as "phenomenal".

Gerrard has been very complimentary of Rodgers' methods and admits he relishes his training sessions.

"You have to give huge credit to the manager," Gerrard told the PFA's website.

"He came in, a young manager taking a huge job and to have the impact he's had in such a short space of time is phenomenal really.

"I'm enjoying every minute working with him, he's a top manager, a top bloke, I'm skipping into work enjoying training and I think every player's the same.

"You can see it in our performances - everyone's expressing themselves, playing with confidence and belief. He takes the fear away from you as a player, you're not scared to make mistakes under him because you're playing the exact way he wants you to play.

"His first six months was obviously everyone getting used to him but as soon as the message got across to the team I think we've carried it out really well over the last 18 months."
