Brendan Rodgers: I am more satisfied and encouraged by the performance


Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was satisfied with the performance of the youngsters after the 1-1 draw away at Bordeaux.

The Reds could only manage a draw in their first Europa League of the season and although the Northern Irishman admitted that the scoreline was a disappointing one, he was full of praise for the young players of his squad.

"You’re obviously disappointed, but I am more satisfied and encouraged by the performance," Rodgers told reporters.

"We had so many young players in the team – and some of these players were playing their first games – so I thought it was very encouraging.

"Coming away in European games is always tough to do, but with the lack of experience we had and a lot of the young players, I was delighted with that.

"You’re disappointed to concede, the striker had too many touches in the box and then they got a bit of good fortune when Emre [Can] slides and the ball ricochets to him [Jussie].

"But if you can’t win, especially away from home in European games, it’s important you get a point – and we certainly at least deserved that."
