Rodgers worked at Chelsea for four years until 2008, before being appointed Liverpool boss in summer 2012.
And the Northern Irishman evidently believes the Anfield outfit are a much bigger institution than Chelsea, despite Liverpool’s lack of recent success compared to their Premier League rivals.
“It’s not easy when you come to a big club,” said Rodgers, when discussing Chelsea loanee Victor Moses.
“You come from a really good club like Chelsea to a massive club like Liverpool where there is expectancy every day.
“For any player to go into a big club is a huge difference in terms of mentality.
“Victor came in and started very well and then he was out of the team. He knows the intensity and speed we’re trying to work at here – both with and without the ball. That takes a wee bit of time to adapt to.”
