Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has backed his friend Brendan Rodgers to succeed as manager of 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 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."
