Rodgers named Liverpool manager

The man tasked with turning things around at Liverpool has been named.

Brendan Rodgers has been appointed manager at Liverpool after a compensation package was agreed upon by the Reds and Rodgers' former club, Swansea City. Rodgers had been linked with a move to Liverpool to be Kenny Dalglish's successor for weeks, but he was officially unveiled as the new manager on Friday.

The 39-year-old Rodgers is now facing the biggest challenge of his career, as he will need to help Liverpool bounce back from an underwhelming season in which they finished in seventh place and missed out on playing in the Champions League.

Rodgers, who has also coached at Reading and Watford in his career, guided Swansea City to an 11th-place finish in the Premiership last season.

What do you think of Liverpool appointing Rodgers? Think they should have gone with someone with a bit more experience? Do you expect him to last until the winter transfer window?
