Former Chelsea coach Glen Driscoll believes that Brendan Rodgers is a better manager than Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti.
Now working as Liverpool's head of performance, Driscoll has worked closely with all three men having coached at Chelsea during the most successful period in the clubs history.
Chelsea became one of the dominant side in the Premier League as Mourinho and Ancelotti both delivered Premier League titles, yet Driscoll feels that Rodgers is able to combine the best features of both managers.
"All the managers I've worked with have their own unique traits - but Brendan has the best mix," Driscoll is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.
"'I still have strong relationships with many of the managers I've worked with, and so I mean no disrespect, but Brendan definitely has a unique combination of all the best traits I've seen.
"Carlo Ancelotti was very humble and showed a lot of humility - I see that in Brendan. I also see the man-management style of Guus Hiddink and obviously the methodologies of Jose [Mourinho] in him. For me, I feel very privileged and lucky to now be working back with him."
Driscoll is working with Rodgers for the fourth time and revealed his pride at being involved with a club looking to restore its rich history and once again compete at the very top.
"I'd sat in the opposition dugout here and been involved in some pretty amazing Champions League games at Anfield," continued Driscoll. "To finally be sitting in the Liverpool dugout makes me very proud. It was obvious when I came here there is an aura at Liverpool and there is class here.
"The passion around the city and football club is something different. With no disrespect to Chelsea as I had a great time there, enjoyed some amazing moments and still have colleagues and friends there, it just feels the set-up here could really take Liverpool above and beyond.
"It is a privilege to be here and my only focus is to try and make sure we achieve success. I'm 100 per cent positive we will do that."
