Rodgers said, "I found him remarkable and our supporters will be very happy to see him at work again. Whether he's playing in a two-centre-back or a three-way defence, he has enormous potential.
"For a defender, who is also young, his anticipation is so good, he reads the game so well. He puts such aggressiveness in his jumps. It's something you need when you're a defender in the Premier League. He will become a great player in the future.
"I was disappointed for him that there was not the result at the end but his performance is hopeful."
