Coady talks of Rodgers influence

Sheffield United's new signing Conor Coady has revealed how Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers recommended the move to Bramall Lane.

Brendan really recommended that I came here, he was really pushing through the move.

When he let me know United were interested he explained that I'd learn so much from playing under David Weir.

I spoke to the Everton lads I know back home who worked with him (Weir) during his time at Goodison (Park) and they all said he's a brilliant coach.

Brendan didn't have to persuade me to come but he did offer me the chance to go on pre-season with Liverpool to Australia and the Far East.

But as soon as I knew what was happening, I wanted to join up with United straight away and get to know the lads.
