The 34-year-old claims that the Northern Irishman has injected new life into the club, with the players keen to prove themselves to him during their pre-season tour of USA

Jamie Carragher has enthused about his experiences under new Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and is eager to impress during pre-season ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

The former Swansea City boss replaced the sacked Kenny Dalglish in June and is currently in the process of implementing his methods, which were successful for him at the Liberty Stadium, on his new squad.

And the veteran defender says that he is keen to prove himself to Rodgers during the off-season, adding that he is already impressed by the new manager's training techniques.

"I can only speak for myself in terms of the training sessions but they've been very enjoyable and we are working really hard," Carragher told the club's official website.

"You want to impress the manager and show him you are a good player and that you deserve to be in his team or in his plans. You've always got to try and prove yourself.

"Whenever a new manager comes in there's always something slightly different, and because it's fresh and new, people seem to take to it.

"I get on well with [Rodgers]. He's come here and really settled well. Everyone has their own ideas and ways of doing things and this manager is no different."

Carragher also revealed that, despite his long career, Rodgers has taught him a few new tricks to add to his game.

"Even as a player my age, you can learn certain things," the 34-year-old continued, "and in the last few weeks I've picked up different things off the manager."
