Muy bien! Suso says meticulous Brendan Rodgers is like a Spanish coach
More from Sports
"He pays attention to detail," says the Liverpool youngster
Suso claims Brendan Rodgers is like a Spanish coach because of his attention to detail.
Rodgers has given Suso his chance this season and the 19-year-old Spanish striker is impressed with the Liverpool boss' training methods.
He says he spots even the smallest mistake in games and goes over it in training.
"He pays attention to detail," said Suso. "If the team makes mistakes in a game, or if he thinks something was wrong tactically.
"He'll try to fix it by running through those plays again in training. This way we don't make the same faults again. He's like a Spanish manager.
"He ensures that the players have the ball at almost all times during our training sessions. This is a good tip for anyone - if you're always touching the ball, your control will improve.
"It's not a method you associate with English football training."
Meanwhile Reds defender Daniel Agger insists the team are playing better than 12 months ago, despite being lower in the table.
After 15 matches of the season Brendan Rodgers' side are 11th on 19 points, 17 behind leaders Manchester United and seven adrift of Champions League qualification having won only four games and drawn seven.
A year ago, under Kenny Dalglish, the team were sixth, 12 points off the top and just three behind fourth place with seven victories and five draws.
"The last couple of games we've played really well," said the Denmark captain.
"I think the Tottenham game (a 2-1 defeat last Wednesday) was one of the best games I've played in for a long time - we played them off the pitch.
"Confidence is a big thing here and I think we have it. We are brave on the ball, want to go forward and we are not just playing around and I think that is the difference.
"I think we are creating more chances than last season. I don't see the statistics but the feeling on the pitch is we are creating bigger chances.
"It is difficult to compare two seasons but it is feeling better now."
Agger says he is trying to look after himself both before and after matches to ensure he is as fit as possible.
"I always enjoy playing football. It is being on the pitch not outside and the last year or so it has been good for me," said the centre-back.
"You learn all the time when you are playing football and I am doing some different things than I did a few years ago.
"I am trying to look after myself better and it is helping.
"It is just things like the way you train, work in the gym, how you recover - and I think that is the most important thing.
"It is also helping with the team around us, the physios and the manager giving us time to recover because that is always difficult in this league.
"When you are playing so many games it is hard to recover. You need to use the time well and the manager is really good at that."
