Brendan Rodgers was unveiled as the new Liverpool manager in a press conference at Anfield on Saturday, June 1. The decision was made after weeks of speculation regarding the post with a host of candidates being linked.

The former Swansea manager admitted that the Liverpool offer was too hard to turn down and his confident of bringing glory days back to the club. He was named as the new boss after Kenny Dalglish was sacked earlier this month following a dismal league campaign which saw the side finish eighth on the Premier League standings table.

Earlier Swansea City FC had revealed that they had agreed a compensation deal with Liverpool for the manager and three members of the backroom staff. The club added that the decision was made when the manager met the club chairman Huw Jenkins yesterday.

“We can today confirm that a compensation package with Liverpool has been agreed for manager Brendan Rodgers and three members of his backroom staff. The Swans agreed to allow the backroom trio to join Brendan following discussions between himself and chairman Huw Jenkins,” a statement read on the Welsh club’s website.

The Swans have started their search for a new manager and there are a host of names being linked to the club including the likes of Alex McLeish and Steve Bruce.

“The club now starts its search for Brendan’s successor. That involves looking at a number of chosen candidates who are well suited to provide Swansea City with continuity which we feel is paramount to our ongoing development as a Premier League club,” the statement concluded.
