Liverpool went through the worst possible ending to their 2014-15 season, as they were brutally defeated by Stoke City in their regular season finale.
“For the first time at the end of last season I felt I needed the break, that week to two weeks after the end of the season was invaluable time but if you want to improve you have to refocus very quickly,” Rodgers revealed.
The Reds lost the game, 6-1, after allowing a whopping five goals in the first half.
Liverpool also fell to sixth place in the final Premier League standings, which put Rodgers’ job security in question.
Nonetheless, Rodgers will return for the 2015-16 season and has already gotten to work on a transfer window filled with heavy spending.
The Reds have already made splash signings, such as striker Christian Benteke for £32.5m and midfielder Roberto Firmino for £29m.
They have also upgraded their defense with the signing of former Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne.
As a whole, Liverpool have spent approximately £80m.
