Liverpool boss Rodgers champions British coaches

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is championing British coaching.

Rodgers, despite being in charge at Anfield for 21 months, is the fourth longest-serving manager in the top flight.

"The mentality is changing," he told the Liverpool Echo. "Now we have a different breed and a different generation and it is filled with really hungry coaches who are very keen to learn and travel and broaden their experiences.

"I liken it to the British players. When I was growing up, guys like Glenn Hoddle and Chris Waddle weren't really recognised until they went abroad for their footballing talents.

"It was probably the same for the coaches. Now I think that is starting to change, and English coaches are now starting to get the opportunities.

"There's no question there is an abundance of coaching talent in this country. They are creative and have the boldness and bravery to get our technical players to play."
