Ayre: Rodgers used to Liverpool now

Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre says Brendan Rodgers' "infectious" enthusiasm will equip him to succeed after acknowledging that it had taken him the best part of a season to get used to life at Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers will take his team to Norway in August
Rodgers had an excellent second half of last season.

Rodgers joined Liverpool from Swansea last summer after two years at the Welsh club, whom he led to promotion to the Premier League and then an 11th-placed finish in the top flight.

But he made a slow start at Liverpool, taking only two points from his first five games. The Reds were 12th in the table after 17 matches before improved form took them into the top seven at the end of the campaign.

Ayre told the Liverpool Echo: "I think it took him most of last year to understand the size of Liverpool Football Club, and he said some of this himself in the final couple of months of last season.

"I think coming from Swansea as an ambitious, young, successful manager and stepping into the Liverpool club was overwhelming in terms of size - certainly not in terms of his ability - and I think he felt that, as he went through the season, he got more and more used to that."

Liverpool took 36 points in the second half of last season, and Ayre believes that showed Rodgers was getting the rewards he deserves.

"He had a fantastic second half of the season," Ayre added. "Brendan is a fantastic person to work with. He's quite infectious, a great person to spend time with and he’s very personable with the players.

"He never stops working, is always on the phone, very collaborative, and we work great as a team here, so we’re very optimistic about this year.

"We've made some good investments in the transfer window, and we will continue to look at that until the end of August."
