Liverpool morning news, Rodgers 'loving every minute,' legend on potential title win

A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Tuesday morning

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said he is ‘loving every minute’ of everything that comes with being in charge of the Reds in the title race.

The Northern Irishman has said that he is enjoying seeing the side develop as a team and says there is always pressure when managing the Anfield side.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “This is brilliant. I may not have been in this position before but I have been in football a long time.

“This is only my fifth year as a manager but I’ve been stood on the touchline coaching for 20 years. I am just really enjoying seeing us develop as a team.

“I walk past the European Cup every day when I walk into the training ground and I know there are another four in the museum at Anfield. That can be pressure but only if you let it be pressure.”

Liverpool legend Ronnie Whelan has said a title win this season would rank alongside the greatest achievements in the club’s history.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “It wasn’t envisaged that we would be anywhere near the title this season but with five games to go it’s in our hands.

“If Liverpool win the title this season it would rank up there alongside any title Liverpool have ever won.”

Steven Gerrard has admitted it would be hard not to get carried away if Liverpool were to overcome Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday but emphasised that all it will give the side is three more points, according to the Daily Mirror.

Gerrard said: “I’m not convinced just yet – we’ve got a very hard game next week. I think the message is to stay calm.

“We will give everything we can now and every time we go on the pitch we have to leave every ounce of energy and determination out there and that’s what we are planning on doing.”

Staying with the Manchester City match, and the significance it could have in the title race, Jordan Henderson has said the Reds will approach it just like any other game.

He’s quoted by Sky Sports, saying: "I've said all along that we must take each game as it comes and obviously the next one is Man City and we must approach that like we have been all season.

"We've got to put on a good performance and get the three points.”
