Liverpool boss Rodgers like a ‘Spanish manager’, claims Suso

Liverpool youngster Suso believes that manager Brendan Rodgers is similar to a Spanish manager, with his close attention to detail ensuring that his players do not repeat their mistakes.

The 19-year-old arrived at Anfield in the summer of 2010 from Cadiz and has seen his opportunities with the first team improve under the former Swansea City boss.

The Spain Under-21s international explained the 39-year-old’s training methods and how they help to improve the entire squad’s performances.

“He pays attention to detail. If the team makes mistakes in a game or, if he thinks something was wrong tactically, he’ll try to fix it by running through those plays again in training,” Suso told the club’s official website.

“This way we don’t make the same faults again. He’s like a Spanish manager.

“He ensures that the players have the ball at almost all times during our training sessions. This is a good tip for anyone – if you’re always touching the ball, your control will improve.

“It’s not a method you associate with English football training.”

Suso recently signed a new long-term contract with the Reds, citing the trust that Rodgers has shown in him this season.

The attacking midfielder has made 12 appearances for the first team in all competitions so far this season, including eight in the Premier League.
