PEPE REINA has spoke of his admiration for new Liverpool FC manager Brendan Rodgers.
The Spanish goalkeeper was impressed with the manner in which Swansea City played last season and is excited about bringing a similar philosophy to Anfield.
“We are very optimistic about the future,” he said. “It’s a very good appointment and hopefully we can have a better season than we did last time. I’m looking forward to going back to Liverpool.
“I watched Swansea last season and I always like to play like that, it’s better for me. I’m only a goalkeeper, but that’s my style and I find that easier. I think it will be very nice for Liverpool.
“He’s going to need some time to implement his ideas. In football a manager needs to have some time to change things around.
“It’s not going to happen in the blink of an eye, we have to give him time.
“He will bring new ideas and we have to very much pay attention to what he wants us to do when we return for pre-season training.”
