Brendan Rodgers has spoken of his pride at
being appointed as the new manager of Liverpool, on the day that he was
officially unveiled at Anfield.

The Reds parted company with club legend Kenny Dalglish at the end
of the 2011/12 season, with Carling Cup success failing to paper over
the cracks that appeared during a disappointing Premier League campaign.

An eighth place finish was deemed unsatisfactory and the Liverpool
board - led by owner John W Henry - took the decision to take the club
in a different direction.

Numerous candidates were considered, with Wigan boss Roberto Martinez
among them, but Rodgers was quickly identified as the Reds' top target.

They were granted permission by Swansea to open discussions and a deal has been agreed.

Rodgers is delighted to have inherited the reins at one of world
football's most iconic clubs and is looking forward to the challenges
that lie ahead.
"When Liverpool came back in for a second
time and said I was the number one choice, then you have to think
seriously about it. I spoke with the chairman Huw Jenkins, who is a
fantastic man, and he gave me permission to speak. Once I found out that
I was the number one target from the important people at Liverpool,
then it was quite an easy decision."
"It's been over 20 years since they won the
title - they might not be ready for the title now, but the process
begins today and it's a new cycle. That's something we will work towards
in the years to come."
