Liverpool announce that Brendan Rodgers has signed a new long-term contract with the club

Liverpool today announced that they have rewarded manager Brendan Rodgers with a new long-term contract.

Rodgers wasn’t expected to have such a good season with Liverpool last season with the initial aim being to secure Champions League football.

But instead the club came agonizingly close to claiming their first league title in 24 years and qualified for the Champions League automatically.

Liverpool wrote on their official website: “Today’s announcement brings further stability to the club, securing the services of one of the brightest managerial talents in the game as Liverpool continues to develop its on-pitch performance.”
