Joe Allen Speaks On His Respect For Brendan Rodgers

Posted by

Joe Allen has spoken of his respect for Brendan Rodgers.

The midfielder starred in the Reds’ first home game of the season but Allen owes that all to Rodgers.

“He certainly has been a key figure in my career so far. He’s a brilliant coach and person, someone who you are desperate to please. When someone gives you responsibility and shows faith in you, like he did with me, it makes you desperate to pay it back”.

The Welsh international added:

“Although I’d been in and around the squad in previous years at Swansea, Brendan helped me progress my game”.
