Liverpool keeper Jose Reina is impressed with the methods of boss Brendan Rodgers. The 30 year old, now in his eighth season with the Reds, has in the last couple of years fallen short of the high standards he sets himself but stressed that was not due to the change in style Rodgers has introduced.
"I have a great relationship with him," said Reina.
"We have a lot of ideas in common and the way we see football is quite similar.
"Our understanding about tactics and feeling for football is very similar. I'm very happy with our manager.
"It's about learning and he's certainly making sure we learn every day in training about ways to win.
"That's important because at the end of the day, what you want to do is win.
"If you play good football, you'll definitely be closer to winning more games.
"That's where we are and my relationship with the manager is very good. "If the players follow the philosophy we'll definitely become a great side - a difficult and strong side to beat and a competitive one."
"There is no doubt that I am more involved with my feet than before, but so is the whole team," he told LFC TV.
"The amount of passes in every game is higher and higher compared to last season. It's a different style and I am happy with it."
