Brendan Rodgers on signing new long-term Liverpool contract: “It leaves me hugely honoured and absolutely delighted.”

Brendan Rodgers has said he is hugely honoured as well as absolutely delighted about signing a new long-term contract with Liverpool.

Details of the deal haven’t been released yet but it’s rumoured to be up until 2018, a reward for the good work Rodgers has done with Liverpool in the last campaign.

Rodgers spoke to Liverpool TV immediately after the deal was announced and said: “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.”

Rodgers also mentioned how much he’s looking forward to next season’s participation in the Champions League: “We know that, in the Champions League, if we can perform well away from home, that in the home games, we’re going to be hard to beat because of the supporters and the quality of the team.”
