Liverpool midfielder Henderson: Rodgers is just fantastic

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has declared Brendan Rodgers among the "best managers in the world".

Henderson has backed Liverpool to qualify for the Champions League again after the Anfield revival continued with the club's biggest win of the season over Swansea on Monday night.

"The manager has been fantastic ever since he came to the club," said the England midfielder. "He's working really hard for us on the training field to ensure that tactically we are better and improving all the time.

"It's up to us as players to ensure we put that into practice on the pitch and we definitely did that against Swansea. We got our just rewards for that.

"It's been hard on everyone. We've gone from winning every week to not winning as often. But the manager has always been the same. He has always looked to improve things on the training field.

"For me, he's one of the top managers in the world. We just have to make sure we keep on putting in the hard work and listening to what he has to say. If we do that then we'll keep going in the right direction.

"He has proved he's a top-class manager and everyone buys into it because we know he's so good tactically.

"He's outstanding at seeing what's happening in games and changing it whenever he needs to. You can see that. If it's not going right in the first 10 to 15 minutes he will change something."
