despite failing to qualify for the Champions League after his side’s defeat against Tottenham.

Rodgers’ men started their last Premier League match in fifth place on the Premier League table, and Chelsea's defeat against Aston Villa gave them a chance to take the fourth spot from the Blues, but they were defeated by Tottenham Spurs.

Rodgers told talkSPORT:

"200 per cent I can... I love it here.

"The fans need have no worries about myself, I love it here, even more so that we've just missed out.

"That motivates me even more to be here to push the club even closer to that level. We'll plan and get ready."

Rodgers is proud of his players and thinks that they have already shown their quality, and missing UCL will not make them less valuable despite being disappointing. His side has won the FA Cup for the first time in the club’s history, and they lost only six of their first 25 games in the season.

"It's hugely disappointing for us to miss out," he told BBC Sport. "We fought so hard all season. You're judged after 38 games and unfortunately we couldn't quite make it.

"I have nothing but pride and admiration for the players. They've constantly had things go against them with injuries.

"When we started work together we were mid-table and just over two years later we're challenging the elite and won the FA Cup for the first time in our history.

"We're on the right path without the resources [of other teams]. I have nothing but pride. The ownership have given me amazing support.

"The players have given me their heart and souls every day. I'm so disappointed for them we couldn't get over the line."
