Liverpool latest: Rodgers on those envelopes, defender says he's not a hero

Brendan Rodgers 2

Some of the key stories surrounding Liverpool Football Club this Wednesday evening.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has said there were no names in the envelopes that were show in the Being: Liverpool documentary at the start of his Anfield reign.

The Reds boss also admitted that he was a bit uncomfortable over the filming of the documentary, ESPN reports.

He said: ‘There were no names.

‘I didn’t like it… I’m a very private person.

‘I know it was great for the American supporters to see, but my own personal feeling is I don’t like being intruded on and for people to see my private life.’

Rodgers also commented on what the club would like to do in the next transfer window in the same interview.

‘We’ve supported the squad, we’ve brought in some quality players, we’ve bought in some players as cover. The next stage for us is to bring in players who are better than what we have.’

Defender Mamadou Sakho has insisted he is not a hero despite scoring two of the goals that helped France overturn a two goal deficit in their World Cup playoff against Ukraine.

He said: ‘I don’t see myself as a hero; the team was the hero in this one. I’d never previously scored a double in my career.

‘We’re going to Brazil and we have to take on board the lessons from all our matches, not just this one.’

Everton boss Roberto Martinez said the timing wasn’t right for him to join Liverpool in the same summer the Reds appointed Brendan Rodgers.

Martinez held talks with the Liverpool hierarchy before deciding to stay at Wigan Athletic.

Speaking ahead of the Merseyside derby on Saturday, Martinez said: ‘Everything ended up that it wasn’t the right time or the right move. I always believe everything in football and life happens for a reason and I am extremely proud and honoured to be manager of Everton.’
