After a mixed first Season for Liverpool’s Manager Brendan Rodgers, where the team started off in August with Luis Suarez as their only striker, the team and squad were of the pace actually being as low as 12th place at one stage.
However, the new passing and pressing game being introduced by Rodgers began to see a gradual improvement in results and performances as the team moved up to 8th in the League around Christmas.
The purchases of Coutinho from Inter Milan and Sturridge from Chelsea made a big difference to the Liverpool team and results and performances improved markedly.
Even though we still only finished in 7th place in the Premier League, the second-half of the Season gives us great cause for optimism for the Season ahead.
Liverpool chairman Tom Werner stated today that he is very happy with BR: “I think Brendan has made remarkable progress.
“He’s a great strategist and has shown strong leadership as he has led the team through this season.
“Obviously there is disappointment that we didn’t finish higher in the table but the team has certainly improved as the season has gone on.
“To see the new additions in January, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, perform so well has been very positive to see.
“We scored a lot more goals than last season.
The 38 away league goals was the club’s highest number in a league season since 1990.
“The club is definitely moving in the right direction under Brendan.
“Our intention is to strengthen the squad further this summer and as owners we’re very optimistic and excited about the future.”
