Brendan Rodgers: All set for Anfield
MOURINHO 'VERY HAPPY' FOR RODGERS
Jose Mourinho says his friend and former colleague Brendan Rodgers will have plenty of ideas at new club Liverpool.
Rodgers, who will be officially presented at a press conference on Friday morning after a compensation package was agreed with Swansea, worked as part of Mourinho's staff when he was in charge at Chelsea.
And Mourinho, now in charge at Real Madrid, told The Sun: "I am very happy with his appointment at Liverpool, especially because he did it as a consequence of all his amazing work at Swansea.
"Brendan is a good man, a family guy and a friend.
"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."
