Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has supported manager Brendan Rodgers' motivational techniques at Anfield.
The documentary Being: Liverpool shows Rodgers in an eve of season team talk using a psychological ploy involving three envelopes.
In an attempt to motivate his players, he tells them the envelopes contain three names of players who will let the side down this season.
Reina told Spanish radio station Onda Cero: 'I never feared being in the envelope. No one can ever put my name in an envelope because of a lack of attitude or commitment.
'It was a motivational speech designed to make sure we were focused and tuned in all year.
'It's the first time I have seen a manager do that and, personally, I liked it. It stands out.
'It was a speech designed to motivate.'
Reina added: 'In terms of the way we have played, there have been moments that have been very good.
'We are trying to impose a new style with a new manager and that takes time.
'There are mistakes at times because it's not easy, but I prefer to make mistakes trying to do what the manager wants and trying to do the right thing.
'We're optimistic that sooner or later we'll be fighting near the top again.'
