Tate: Training Has Been 'Different Class'

Vice-captain Alan Tate has praised new boss Brendan Rodgers, and says the training sessions have been 'different class'.

The former Watford and Reading manager has only been taking training sessions since last Friday, but Tate has already been impressed with Rodgers so far.

Tate told the Official Site:

'So far training has been different class,''

'It's been really enjoyable and a lot different to last season.

'Everything is a lot shorter and sharper with more football fitness, which is what we need.

'All the training drills in the first three sessions were new. I've never done anything like it before and it was really enjoyable.

'He's obviously brought a lot of thing with him; things he's learnt over 15 years as a coach, including his experiences under the likes of Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

'He's definitely given everyone a lift and all the lads are buzzing in training. The boys have trained well and, while we are still a long way from full fitness, I'm sure that will come.

'All the signs are positive for the new season.''
