Brendan Rodgers is on the verge of becoming the new Liverpool manager, according to reports. Talksport are of the “understanding” that the appointment by the Fenway Sports Group has been made.
Sky Sources claimed earlier that Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins held a two-hour meeting with Rodgers today and the result is the Swans boss leaving to manage the Anfield club.
The impending appointment looks to be a surprise one after Rodgers initially rejected the opportunity to speak to Liverpool about the vacancy last week. The club then moved on to other candidates, speaking to both former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas and even former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez to replace the sacked Kop legend Kenny Dalglish before they seemed to have settled on Wigan manager Roberto Martinez.
Martinez flew to America and met with principal owner John W Henry last Thursday in Miami and was deep in talks with Liverpool but a deal couldn’t be trashed out and it appears a second approach to Rodgers has resulted in this apparently impending appointment. Rodgers was in the United States to see Wales vs Mexico and it looks like his head may have been turned after initially turning down an approach.
More news as we get it but we must stress this news has yet to be confirmed and Swansea earlier insisted that the lengthy meeting with Rodgers today was scheduled to plan transfer targets and training regimes for next season.
