Liverpool “philosophy” lures Tottenham Hotspur coach

Liverpool boss Brenda Rodgers says the implementation of his “philosophy” is growing after the Reds lured away a top Tottenham Hotspur youth coach.

Alex Inglethorpe has left White Hart Lane to take up a new role as reserve team coach at Anfield, leaving his position as Andre Villas-Boas’ Under-18 coach – a role held for some time in his six years with Tottenham.

Liverpool’s capture of Inglethorpe was part of a number of academy and reserve team changes implemented at the behest of Rodgers and his desire to change the culture of coaching at the Reds.

“I'm delighted that Alex has decided to join us in our journey to create a philosophy that runs directly through the club,” the northern Irishman told the official Liverpool website.

“He has many years of experience in youth football and also managed at senior level. His unswerving belief and commitment to our way of working will bring continued success in this role.”

Rodgers has been preaching his vision of the club ever since he was appointed Liverpool manager this summer, but it did not begin very smoothly.

The Reds struggled for goals in the early days since he switched from Swansea City and they found wins hard to come by, especially at home.

However, the effect of the new regime Rodgers implemented has been improving recently, as his side have not lost in their last four outing, though wins are less frequent than they would like.
