What is Rodgers’ style? In all phases of the game? I don’t think anyone knows it. He’s still working that out.
We know certain things and principles he likes, but not all. He failed to make it a circle that makes sense in all phases of the game.
When he was here, he talked about wanting to create a fusion between attacking/possession football, pressing and having a Britishesque block at the back, whatever that means/meant.
Some moves when he was with us are almost the complete opposite of a manager who wants active/pressing football and playing out from the back.
Stylistically a few examples: from Reina to Mignolet, from Agger to Sakho, going for Benteke after a problematic season, etc.
I think the move to Celtic was clever, he dropped a level, but at least went somewhere where he could train his idea, needed to be protagonist and prove he can win, having a return to a top club in England in mind one day.
I’m still not sure about the clarity and excecution of his idea, though it’s difficult to judge now at Leicester.
I guess he’s made some steps, got experience and now we’ll see when/if he gets a more important job in the future.
