Rodgers wants to emulate Anfield greats

Published Add your comment

New Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has no concerns about following club icon Kenny Dalglish at Anfield, but hopes one day his own achievements will put him alongside the likes of the Scot, Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley.

The 39-year-old conducted himself impressively as he was presented to the media having been officially confirmed as the man owners Fenway Sports Group hope will deliver their vision to restore the Reds' former glories.

Rodgers said: "I can only be Brendan Rodgers and do the very best I can for the football club. What I want to do is prove my worth, honesty and commitment to Liverpool. History judges you as the manager, that is the reality. I hope my history here will allow me to walk beside many of the great managers."
