Rodgers has questioned whether he was properly backed in the transfer market during his Anfield tenure.
"At Liverpool of course we were very good going forward, you have to ask did I have the players to defend how we'd want to defend? I think now at Liverpool they obviously invest a lot of money to get those types of players in.
"Here I've got a top-level centre-half in Jonny Evans, a young player in Caglar [Soyuncu] beside him who's amazing. We've got a top European goalkeeper."
