Brendan Rodgers Backed By Jose Mourinho For Liverpool Success by ikee(m): 8:13am On Jun 01, 2012
Rodgers, 39, will be unveiled as Kenny Dalgish's successor on Friday at 10:00 BST after Liverpool and his club Swansea agreed a compensation deal.

He worked as part of Mourinho's staff when he was in charge at Chelsea.

"I am very happy with his appointment, especially because he did it as a consequence of all his amazing work at Swansea," Mourinho told the Sun. Rodgers was appointed by Mourinho as the Chelsea youth-team manager in 2004 and was promoted to reserve-team manager two years later. He left Stamford Bridge in 2008 to become Watford boss.

His appointment, on what is expected to be a three-year deal, came after the Reds were linked with a number of candidates including former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas, ex-England coach Fabio Capello and Ajax manager Frank de Boer, as well as Wigan manager Roberto Martinez, who held a meeting with the club's hierarchy.

Rodgers declined an initial opportunity to speak to Liverpool about the vacancy 12 days ago before changing his mind and Mourinho believes he can make a good impression at Anfield.

"Brendan is a good man, a family guy and a friend," he added.

"When he joined us at Chelsea he was a young coach with lots of desire to learn.

"But he was also a coach with ideas, who was ready not just to listen but also to communicate and share."

Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy is happy with the decision: "I think they have made a very good appointment in Brendan Rodgers, I really do.

"He is very good guy as well, speaks well, knows his football, and he has proven himself."
