FENWAY SPORTS GROUP AND LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB ANNOUNCE
BRENDAN RODGERS AS NEW MANAGER
Reds reveal highly rated Rodgers as the man to take them forward
Fenway Sports Group (FSG) and Liverpool Football Club announced that Brendan Rodgers has been appointed as the club's new Manager, after signing a contract.
Rodgers, 39, is regarded as being at the forefront of a new generation of football coaches, an excellent tactician and motivator with a progressive philosophy. After an extensive two-week process where many highly-qualified candidates were carefully considered, Liverpool's ownership group identified Rodgers as the single outstanding candidate to implement their long-term vision.
At Liverpool, Rodgers' primary focus will be the first team but he'll also work extensively in collaboration with the new football operations structure as the team adheres to the continental football Sporting Director model. Further details on this structure will be provided in due course.
Rodgers joins the Reds after a hugely successful spell at Swansea City; where he won them promotion to the Barclay's Premier League in his first full season in-charge. He then further defied the odds by securing a mid-table finish in England's top flight, playing a brand of football praised for its fluidity and entertaining, attacking nature.
New Manager Brendan Rodgers says he can't wait to get started at Anfield:
"I'm blessed to be given this opportunity. I want to thank John Henry, Tom Werner and FSG for the opportunity to manage such a great club. I'm really excited and I can't wait to get started on this incredible project going forward. I promise to dedicate my life to fight for this club and defend the great principles of Liverpool Football Club on and off the field."
Liverpool's Principal Owner John Henry says they've got the man they want:
"Fenway Sports Group is committed to building for the long-term. Brendan Rodgers' appointment today as manager of Liverpool Football Club is one of the most important steps we will take in building the kind of club on and off the pitch supporters can be excited about.
"Brendan's comprehensive football philosophy is perfectly aligned with those at the club and those soon to join the club. He was the first choice unanimously among them and he had no hesitation at all in embracing exactly what we want to try to build at Liverpool.
"We do not expect miracles overnight nor should anyone else. But we firmly believe that the direction the club is heading in will lead to Premier League championships. We will embrace the unconventional, build the right way and together set a bold, exciting course for this historic club."
Chairman Tom Werner says the fans can look forward to some exciting times ahead:
"The style of football Brendan is associated with is exactly what we want to see at Anfield.
"Aggressive, attacking play; Swansea were a revelation last season with their brand of entertaining football.
"But it's not just what he has achieved in the last two years that has impressed us; he has dedicated his career to coaching, has studied the game all over Europe and he is the perfect person to take this club forward.
Rodgers extensive coaching background began in 1995, when at just 22 years of age he became Academy manager for Reading. His talent and enthusiasm drew admirers and in 2004 Jose Mourinho swooped to secure his services for Chelsea, as they went on to dominate the Premier League for the next two campaigns.
The Northern Irishman was soon to be given the opportunity to manage outright, being appointed manager of Watford and then subsequently Reading, where his professional journey began.
Throughout his coaching career, Rodgers travelled Europe and visited clubs such as Valencia, Sevilla and Barcelona as well as clubs in the Netherlands to exchange ideas on football philosophy and to learn from some of the best teams and managers in the game.
Managing Director Ian Ayre says he is an impressive character:
"When you meet Brendan you can't help but be inspired by his knowledge, passion and vision for the game.
"The experience he has for such a young age shows we are getting someone at the very top of their profession.
"He and our owners both have a clear plan of how to bring success on the pitch and he will have the full support of everyone at Liverpool Football Club while he strives to achieve that."
Welcome to LFC and good luck Brendan Rodgers!

Liverpool Warrior kits available in Manila beginning this Friday, June22.
It’s been a while, folks. But yep, it’s finally here. Warrior, the new makers of Liverpool FC, will have their kits available in Manila at Planet Sports located at the Power Plant in Rockwell.
Warrior has paid tribute to the city of Liverpool’s maritime roots, unveiling the Club’s new 2012/13 away kit.
Following the successful launch of the inaugural Warrior Liverpool FC home kit, the away strip is also built around the theme of ‘modern tradition’.
Head of Warrior Football Richard Wright comments: “The away kit draws strong parallels from the uniforms worn by the Liverpool dockyard workers who plied their trade at the Mersey Docks – the world’s most influential ship building at the turn of the 20th century.”
Specifically inspired by the kit worn between 1900 and 1906, the away shirt features a prominent yoke detail set over a distinct colour palette of black and raven grey.
Fully embroidered to match the new home kit, the amber yellow Liver Bird emblem sits prominently on the away shirt as the Club’s crest. As with the new home kit, the away version has been designed using Warrior’s revolutionary apparel system, War-Tech. At the heart of War-Tech lies Scafé, an innovative, antimicrobial fabric made with coffee grounds. As well as being environmentally friendly, Scafé is fast drying, assists with odor control and provides UV protection.
To further ensure the highest level of performance, the main body of the Liverpool FC away shirt is designed with durable water resistant technology to reject external moisture and help maintain dryness. Under-arm four-way stretch mesh fabric also enables full-range movement, functionality and air flow to help regulate body temperature in key heat areas during games.
In Philippines, the kit will be available to purchase from Planet Sports Rockwell, Planet Sports Alabang Town Center and Trinoma on July.
Warrior will unleash its European kit in July.
Locally we’ll be offering the following for the away kits.
Mens Away Short Sleeve Jersey – Php 2,450
Mens Away GK Jersey – Php 3,050
Mens Away GK Short – Php 1,750
