Rodgers admits Liverpool expectations were tough to handle

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says he's learned to handle the massive expectations at Anfield.

Rodgers admits it did take some getting used to when he first arrived.

"I think when I first came in we found that difficult. I think we found the expectancy levels of being at the top, the expectancy to play in what is a style that has become the way and the definition of the way the club has worked - I think all of that rolled into one, to find that consistency level was difficult.

"I think the expectancy now to win and to perform is something we enjoy, rather than not relish. At this moment in time, where we're at 18 months down the line from my first league game against West Brom, we're in a much better place in every facet of our game. We're still looking to build something here, but we've shown good signs and progress. We just need to keep that focus and concentration on our job."
