The ex-Swansea manager is an ardent admirer of Spanish football, having studied the tiki-taka school of thought and implementing it with his former side in the past season.
Rodgers revealed that he had observed Spain's style of play during Euro 2012, especially their famous "false nine" formation and stated that he had utilised a similar tactic last year with Swansea. He outlined that possession-based tactics would definitely be considered at Liverpool but his side would not be afraid to go on the attack when necessary during a game.
"Yes, I did that last [employing a false nine] year. I think it is all about penetration," he told talkSPORT.
"We [Swansea City] used to defend with the ball and people in this country don't quite understand that - they think that you defend without the ball.
"We talked a lot and it is something I will look to bring [to Liverpool]: possession is no good on its own, it has to be with penetration.
"If you look at the goals Spain scored in the final, they had penetration as well as possession. Fabregas was playing a striker but he wasn't really, he was free and loose.
"The pass that he received off his run in behind set up the first goal for Silva, the second goal came from the penetration from the left-back, Alba, who made a great run.
"The third goal came from them winning it back early in the transition and Torres made the penetrating run in behind."
With star striker Luis Suarez in his ranks, however, he also believes that the Reds can win utilising a conventional formation.
"I think sometimes it is very easy to pinpoint a striker will always play as a striker.
"You see with Spain, and Barcelona with Messi, it is something that works.
"What is important is what the players do in those positions and that allows you to win games."

He also called on the supporters to be patient and to not get carried away with the many transfer rumours linking players across the globe with the Merseyside club as there are few signings that would truly add value to the Liverpool squad.
"Unfortunately, especially for the supporters, it is a difficult time because you have agents linking players with Liverpool just purely because it is great for them to be linked with such an institution of a club.
"But the reality is that there are very few players who could actually come and make a difference at Liverpool.
"That is something we will always keep close to our chest."
Liverpool lost out on Gylfi Sigurdsson who chose to sign with Tottenham instead of securing a reunion with his former boss. They will tour the United States in the coming weeks where they will play Toronto, Roma and Tottenham in pre-season friendlies.
