Rodgers explains Liverpool digging up Anfield pitch

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits they're digging up the Anfield pitch.

Rodgers has been unhappy with the playing surface at the club's stadium since he took over in 2012, and now there will be a major renovation over the summer.

The Liverpool manager wants an improved standard to match the pitches at the club's training ground at Melwood.

"We will be getting a new pitch next summer to help the speed of our game," explained Rodgers.

"It is an old pitch that has not been upgraded for some years and it can be a disadvantage for us. It is difficult to play one-touch football on it.
