Manchester City midfielder Yaya Touré has said that he is impressed by the regime of Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool.
The former Chelsea youth team manager has been able to get the team, which finished seventh in the league last season, to be in a position of winning the title with only five matches remaining. City will be the visitors to Anfield to take on Liverpool in a top of the table clash. Touré will be aware that City need to win the match in order to win the title. Even though they have two matches in hand, Liverpool have a four-point advantage.
Touré says that the regime of Rodgers has been so impressive that even his brother – Kolo Toure – speaks about it in glowing terms despite not getting regular game time at Anfield this season. Kolo moved to Liverpool in the summer on a free transfer from Manchester City.
Even though he was involved in the first half of the season, the second half has been very tough for the former Arsenal player. Kolo Toure could become the first in the Premier league to win the title with three different teams. He has done it with Arsenal and Manchester City in the past.
Yaya Touré is expected to start in the midfield for City as one of the big players.
"This year they have been playing as a team. Brendan Rodgers is a great manager and everybody has been happy with him. Even my brother Kolo has had low game time but he is very happy with him. He always keeps his team 100 per cent fit and concentrating so it's going to be tough. Against Liverpool, everything is going to come from everywhere. [Steven] Gerrard can score penalties and free-kicks and Suarez is a danger man,” said Touré.
