Brendan Rodgers one of best managers around, says Liverpool legend
Former Liverpool centre-half Jamie Carragher heaps praise on Reds manager Brendan Rodgers
Brendan Rodgers is one of the best managers around, according to Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.
The Northern Irishman has masterminded Liverpool’s return to the Champions League and the Reds are top of the Premier League table with two games remaining.
He gets it right most of the time. He keeps the opposition guessing and at this moment he is one of the best around
Carragher, who retired last summer, worked under the 41-year-old during the final season of his Liverpool career as Rodgers attempted to rebuild at Anfield.
And the Champions League-winning centre-half praised Rodgers ability to adapt ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Crystal Palace on Monday night.
“I worked for him for 12 months and he was great with me and this success couldn’t happen to a nicer fella,” Carragher told Liverpool’s website.
“He’s a great coach and man-manager and the way he flips and changes his side. If you get beat doing that, then people will say you are messing about with the team, but when you win, they say you’re a great tactician.
“He gets it right most of the time. He keeps the opposition guessing and at this moment he is one of the best around.”
