Liverpool fans all smiles as first big deal is confirmed

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has agreed a new deal to stay at Anfield.

The Kop boss will stay at Anfield until 2018 after sorting out the final details on the deal which was agreed earlier this month.

Rodgers, 41, joined the Reds in 2012 from Swansea and turned them from Premier League also-rans last season into title challengers this term.

They are back in the Champions League for the first time since 2010 and the Northern Irishman has been rewarded with a big pay rise.

As quoted on the Daily Star website, he said: “It’s a huge privilege for me to manage this club and to have been offered the opportunity to carry on with the work I have been doing over the last couple of years.

“It leaves me hugely honoured. I’m absolutely delighted to be able to continue what has been a really exciting time for the club.

“We’ll look to move forward again next season and over the coming seasons.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
