New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has asked for patience from the Reds fans next season as he looks to implement his style of play.

The former-Swansea manager admits it will take time for his new players to adapt to the demands of his possession-based philosophy, and the new Reds boss has not ruled out adding to his squad as he looks to build for the future.

Rodgers won plaudits from pundits, players and fans alike as he guided the Swans to 11th place in their debut Premier League season. But, as impressive as the results were, the 39-year-old garnered a reputation for free-flowing football, and the Reds are keen for Rodgers to replicate his style on Merseyside.

Speaking to the club's official website, Rodgers said: "For me it is going to take time for how I want to play and the philosophy I want to introduce. My longer-term aim is to arrive here seeing how quickly we can do so."

Liverpool finished a disappointing eighth place in the Premier League, and Rodgers may look to bring in new players as he seeks to bring success back to Anfield.

"The principles of your game are based on the players you have and there is no doubt I'll have a look at that and see if there is anyone I need to bring in to improve that," said Rodgers.

Top of his list could be Gylfi Sigurdsson. The Hoffenheim player worked under Rodgers at Swansea, and had been close to clinching a move to south Wales before Rodgers made the switch to Liverpool.

The Hoffenheim midfielder has not agreed terms with Swansea, and the new Reds boss may look to swoop for the Icelandic international.
