Brendan Rodgers "very honoured" by Premier League award

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says that he is very honoured to be named as Premier League manager of the month for August.

Brendan Rodgers has said that he is "very honoured" to have been named as the Premier League manager of the month for August.

The Liverpool boss was presented with the accolade at the club's Melwood training ground earlier today.

Rodgers told reporters: "I was very honoured, but I didn't receive it on my own. It's very much a collective effort here, the players have been outstanding since they came back on the first day of pre-season. They have maintained their mentality very quickly from last year.

"Right the way through pre-season and into the beginning of the season they have been outstanding. It was very much them that have allowed me to get the award.

"The other group of people is our staff here, not just at Melwood but throughout the club. There's very much a one-club mentality and Liverpool is a very powerful club when it's like that."

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge was named as the player of the month.
