Rodgers, who is in his first job since being fired by Liverpool in September 2015, said "professionally and personally I'm in a good place. A few years ago, I might have been in a rush. But I have learnt to cherish what you have."
"It is only the start for us," Rodgers said. "I have the responsibility to the supporters. I am one of them, I know what they think and what they want and I want to try to bring them as far to that as I possibly can."
