Rodgers: You “train” dogs – not footballers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers tells viewers on the new documentary series ‘Being: Liverpool’ that he believes in “educating” players rather than “training” them.

“You train dogs” he says as he explains his footballing philosophy to the six-part documentary series, which first airs in the United States on September 16th.

The Telegraph also report how Liverpool players are shown attending a meditation class while on their US tour this summer.

Rodgers talks about his footballing philosophy, telling the cameras he does not believe in “training” players, rather he hopes he is “educating” them. “You train dogs,” he says.

“Every player I see as my own son,” he said. “I want to do the very best for them. I want to be able to push them in their lives so they can do it for their children. We do everything in life for our kids. I don’t want to ever miss the chance of letting players understand that this is why we do it.”

The eagerly awaited six-part, fly-on-the-wall, series first airs on September 16th on FOX Soccer channel in the United States and is narrated by Liverpool FC supporter and actor Clive Owen.

It will be shown in the UK by channel 5, we believe the first episode will be shown a week after it is aired Stateside but this is yet to be confirmed.

The first episode will feature the departure of former manager Kenny Dalglish, including an explanation from chairman Tom Werner and principal owner John Henry.

Filming for the series began just after the FA Cup Final in May, and concluded last week.
