Talented Liverpool youngster Jordan Rossiter claims that former boss Brendan Rodgers was 'brilliant' for him.

As reported by Liverpool's official site, the dynamic midfielder has also insisted that he's excited to work under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp and is sure the former Borussia Dortmund manager will help him continue to come to prominence on Merseyside. 

Rossiter has established himself on the first-team scene at Anfield this term, featuring in both the Premier League and Europa League.

With the Reds set to host Rubin Kazan in Europe on Thursday evening, Rossiter will no doubt be hoping for some game time under the new regime. 

Speaking to, Rossiter stated: "He's managed in the Champions League, he's won stuff with Dortmund, and I'm really looking forward to [working with] him. It's going to be a good experience.

"I thought Brendan Rodgers was brilliant for me, he gave me my chance, over the last couple of years he put me at Melwood.

"I'm sure Jurgen Klopp's going to be the same, I know he's given young players a chance and it only bodes well for all the lads at the Academy and the young lads in the first team."

Follow suit 

It's likely that Klopp will follow in the footsteps of Rodgers and look to hand the club's youngsters a platform to prove their credentials over the coming years. 

The revered German has a great track record of implementing youth into his side, so the likes of Rossiter and Co. should be excited by the future. 

Rossiter has the ability to go from strength-to-strength at Anfield. His impressive league debut against Arsenal earlier this season certainly proved that he has the right attitude to compete at the highest level.
