PHOTO: How Brendan Rodgers reacted to Coutinho's Liverpool winner

Optimized 20140413 151430

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers reflected the passion shown by his players against Manchester City.

Managers are often criticised of not showing their passion when a team scores, keen to keep their cards close to their chest.

Brendan Rodgers is not one of those.

When Liverpool scored their crucial late winner against Manchester City, the manager was celebrating wildly as though he had scored it himself.

And who can blame him? 

Should Liverpool win their final four remaining league games and go onto win the Premier League, Rodgers will instantly write his name in folklore as a managerial legend at one of the greatest clubs in the world.

A favourite for manager of the season recognition, the best thing about Rodgers is he realises the game and the title win is bigger than himself, and more important, and just simply relishes doing his job and being a part of it.
