Liverpool boss Rodgers excited about competitive Anfield debut tonight August 9, 2012, 2:05 pm

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is excited making his competitive Anfield debut tonight.

The Reds face FC Gomel in the second-leg of their Europa League qualifier.

"It will be an honour for me to walk out at Anfield tomorrow night for my first game there," Rodgers told "It is going to be an incredible privilege for me but my focus will be to win the game.

"That will be the most important objective for me on the evening. I'll look to try and make Anfield a real cauldron of a place to come and play.

"I've been given an incredible welcome here. It's been phenomenal. From the outside looking in it was always that way; the passion from the fans and the city and it was a real iconic club. But once you're inside, it's even better than that.

"But while sentiment is important, it doesn't wash with me so much - I need to win games. This is a club that really has a destination; this is a club that you want to be at. We'll improve and get better as we go along."
