Rodgers has no Liverpool regret, but pleads for patience

Brendan Rodgers insists there is no quick fix at Liverpool.

The Northern Irish coach left the relative safety of his position at Swansea City for the Anfield hotseat in the summer, and he has endured a difficult time since. Whilst his former club have continued to progress following their promotion to the Premier League in 2011, his new side are already seven points behind their target of fourth position.

Rodgers also saw the Swans beat the Reds in the Capital One Cup in midweek, reducing his realistic chances of silverware to the FA Cup and UEFA Europa League. Despite these troubles, the 39-year-old insists he has no regrets over his decision to move to Merseyside, although he has warned fans they could face a wait to see his work take shape.

“There are certainly no regrets about coming here,” he said. "It was always going to be a massive job. I signed a three-year deal but that process of rebuilding will go beyond that. Hopefully I can be here to do that. There is no quick fix here. We have to balance the finances and that is what we are doing. There will be a bit of pain on the way."

Liverpool welcome Newcastle United to Anfield on Sunday afternoon, in a game you can see live on Sky Sports. A win for the home side would see them overtake their opponents in the standings, and claim a top-ten place after ten matches.
