Reds manager content, despite 2-1 loss at Manchester United.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said that he was “proud” of his side’s display in their Premier League encounter at Manchester United, despite the Reds going down 2-1 to their arch rivals at Old Trafford.
“Very proud of the fight of the team in the second half,” said Rodgers in his post-match press conference.
“We went two-nil down … and you come to here and it’s then always difficult, and you maybe see other teams might have crumbled. But for us, we were disappointed with the first half, I thought we were too tentative, and there wasn’t much in the first half but any chances that they had was through us giving the ball away.”
And Rodgers was equally delighted in the performance of new signing Daniel Sturridge, who scored the Merseysiders only goal of the game, saying: “He’s going to score many goals for Liverpool.
“I think you’ve seen him now in a half-appearance today and 55 minutes last week … this boy’s a goalscorer, I think what he needed was an opportunity – and he had one goal and was unlucky, a couple of times he tried to organise his feet in the box and just couldn’t quite get the shot off. But no, he’s going to be a terrific signing for us.”
