Rodgers's arrival has strengthened his position and the fly-on-the-wall documentary Being: Liverpool has shown what the new manager thinks about Shelvey.
"I want to get you in the team and playing regularly," has been Rodgers's mantra and it is one Shelvey has lapped up.
"Whenever a manager plays you, says you are going to be a big part of his squad and supports you then it gives you confidence," said Shelvey.
"Brendan has been first class. He has put his trust in me and I want to keep repaying him. I don't want to let him down."
