Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists that a challenging first year in charge at Anfield has helped him build confidence in his own ability.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has declared that he feels comfortable at Anfield ahead of his second season in charge.

Rodgers finished seventh in his maiden campaign as Reds boss, with five players signed so far this summer in a bid to improve that position.

The 40-year-old had admitted that it took some time for the importance of his role to sink in, but now feels confident in his ability to deliver success on Merseyside.

He told the club's official website: "I'm still the same man but with greater experience behind me. Until you come to a club like Liverpool and you have that first season here you don't really understand totally what it's like to be the manager of such an iconic club.

"But I feel comfortable now; I'm very fortunate, I've got brilliant staff around me. They give me great support in my role. The board have been absolutely brilliant for me in my time here.

"We're all working unified and committed to keeping the club moving forward. I'm in a good place. I'm really excited and looking forward to this season. We've still got a lot of work to do."

The Reds will play their first pre-season friendly today against Preston North End, with new additions Kolo Toure, Simon Mignolet and Iago Aspas all expected to feature.
