Barring Craig Bellamy (who is widely expected to finalize a move away from the Reds for the second time in his career over the next couple of days, rejoining Cardiff City), Rodgers was finally able to begin implementation of the much vaunted ‘tiki-taka’ playing philosophy with his full squad in attendance, earlier today at Melwood.
The manager began training members of the squad back at the start of July, however this contained just a few members of the first team due to the Euro 2012 Championships, as well as Olympic tournament commitments.
Now Uruguay’s Olympic football dream ended last week, Luis Suarez and Sebastian Coates were finally able to rejoin the Reds squad to prepare for the new 2012/13 season, teaming up with new manager Brendan Rodgers for the first time.
Earlier today Suarez and co. took part in their first training session together, and as the following pictures show, the squad seem to be enjoying the manager’s new training methods already!
