Mellor is convinced Rodgers can bring the good times back to Anfield.
"That's a long time for a club like Liverpool. It will be a few more years before we get back into that top-four but, if the patience is there, then I honestly believe that Brendan Rodgers can create something special.
"The fans will be patience, the results haven't been great at the start of the season but the performances have been great. We've seen the emergence of quite a few young players coming through who wouldn't have played if other people were performing."
