"This is not something I can say - if he does A he is successful, if he doesn't he's not, but he understand's the club's philosophy and that is a relentless kind of attack," he said.

"Bill Shankly understood that you cannot be satisfied with a draw. We have to start winning, we have to start winning consistently. I'm optimistic that we're going to do that in the short run and Kenny is the right man for the job right now."

Speaking about Roy Hodgson's sacking he added: "You have to be thinking for the long term. We're looking out for the club not just for the short term but also the long term and you don't like to sack anybody, but I think it was time to move forward in a different direction."

Werner then went on to discuss the possibility of new signings during the January transfer window.

"I don't want to disappoint a fanbase that has been disappinted but Damien (Comolli) is on the phone as we talk and we hope that we can have a match with someone that we desire and we hope they come to Anfield.

"We're here because we believe in restoring the lustre of Liverpool. We're honoured to be here, we feel its a privilege to be here and we'd like to look back at this in 10 years or 20 years and say that we brought more trophies to the museum around the corner here."
