Brendan Rodgers: We deserve the right to be in the Champions League


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says a win in the Champions League would be the perfect way to make amends for the Aston Villa defeat.

The Reds suffered a shock defeat to Aston Villa at Anfield and the manager knows that it is vital to secure a win against Ludogorets Razgrad when Liverpool make their Champions League debut on Tuesday.

"This is a group that has shown over the time that I've been here that we have to get over disappointment and move to the next game," Rodgers told the club's official website.

"We dominated the game against Villa but didn't get the result we wanted but we have to move on. Our focus now goes straight to Tuesday night.

"It will be a wonderful occasion for us to be back in Champions League football and hopefully getting over the weekend result by getting a win in the first group game.

"I am very excited. Five years is a long time. We deserve the right to be in it.

"Last year, we had a great season. Success is about qualifying from the group.

"We will take it one game at a time. But the overall first objective is to perform well and get out of the group and qualify."
