So it’s all change at Anfield this Friday.
Brendan Rodgers was today unveiled in front of the English media as the 39-year-old Northern Irishman was handed the reigns as Liverpool FC.
Rodgers was quick to send out the soundbites which all Red scousers wanted to hear.
Rodgers: ”I promise I’ll fight for my life and for the people in this city… We might not be ready for the title now but the process begins today… This is long-term and that’s the appeal to me… I am very proud. I feel I have been blessed with the opportunity to manage the club.”
With a new man at the helm, Liverpool also released a new video on Friday showcasing their snazzy new strip for next season.
With Craig Bellamy acting as the model, and Tron-esque style video has been released in order to raise awareness and hype over the Reds’ new kit for the 2012/13 season.
The only strange part of the video comes at the end: we’re still struggling to understand what “We Come Not To Play” means?!
