Liverpool Boss Brendan Rodgers has stated that he is looking for those players “who are brave on the ball” in future transfer window, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The 40-year-old has given a revealing interview to a tabloid newspaper in which the Northern Irishman states what type of features he look out for when recruiting new players for Liverpool.
“I think my history as a coach shows I like players who are gifted technically and have courage when it comes to being in possession of a football,” said Rodgers.
“That is a key quality for me; can you be brave on the pitch, not in terms of 50-50 tackles but having the ball and looking to play in areas others wouldn’t?
“I would say you can’t divorce the two – ability and personality.
“It all comes as part of the package. A player’s character is a crucial factor I look into before committing to signing them.
“They also need to show a willingness to learn, regardless of age and experience; that’s very important to me.”
The Liverpool boss look to seal a top-four finish in the Premier league this season.
