AFTER agreeing a compensation settlement deal with is all set to become the new manager at – and he’s not coming alone.

He will be joined by three members of his Swansea backroom staff after Swans chairman held discussions with the LFC board this morning, and confirmed that assistant manager , performance analyst and performance consultant would also leave the Welsh side with immediate effect.

Pascoe, a former Swansea player, was seen as Rodgers right-hand man at the Liberty Stadium. Driscoll had spent 10 years working as a performance analyst at , before moving to South Wales only last year along with Davies, who previously worked with Rodgers at Reading.

On the imminent departure of losing his manager, Jenkins said:

“I was contacted by Liverpool last night and they expressed their wish to speak to Brendan regarding their vacancy. I had a discussion with Brendan to talk about their interest and his views on whether he wanted to speak to Liverpool.

“He expressed his wish with me to do that and he has spoken to Liverpool today. Following on from discussions with Liverpool’s owners, Brendan has informed us that he would like to take up their offer to manage Liverpool.”

It is thought that Rodgers accepted the offer after receiving reassurances that he will have control over team affairs, and can impose a footballing style and philosophy which in keeping with what owners and Liverpool FC want.

FSG’s agenda was always to appoint a young coach with a passion for attractive, fluid, attacking football and in Rodgers, it appears they have such a coach.

    Liverpool has just gone good 10 years backwards. AVB was the best example of a young manager couldn’t manage big egos. Big clubs,big names will require big and experienced name manager. It’s not Watford,Reading or Swansea you are talking about, its Liverpool. Unfortunately LFC playing a dangerous game to establish themselves as a mediocre club. Brendan Rodgers will never be able to attract big names,neither will he manage big egos. Liverpool are replacing Tottenham in the top of the mediocrity league table, while Tottenham are taking their top 4 place.

      I know it’s 2012 but do you have to be such a doom monger and it’s the end of the world!
      Rodgers has been working up to this for the last 17 years,worked with Mourinho, he gets invited to the Spanish training squad to train them, he speaks Spanish, earlier in his career learnt from Barcelona, Valencia and Sevilla before moving on to Holland to learn from coach Rinus Michels man who invented Total Football who trained Johan Cruyff who then started the Barcelona revolution with there academy.
      When you start reading about Rodgers there are plenty of positives.

    Only time will tell, all we can do as fans is support the manager, the owners and players of course! Show us the plan! I as long as every1 gives 100%! Then we’ll see where we end up in may! Not september or november, MAY! Every great manager starts off some where smaller, and then get given a chance at a big club to prove if they r great, good or just plain average! Good luck, spend wisely and stick to ya principles, welcome to the lfc family, may it be a long and successful partnership! Y…N…W…A jft96!

    @iver bitten. You are talking about things as if they are not in the present. LFC is already a mid table team. Totthenham already took their place and in the top 4 flight. This is however a new dawn and chance for Liverpool to bounce back. We are seeiing a new evolution of managment here which none of us Liverpool supporters have seen. I am the first one to get behind FSG Brendan Rodgers and the Club! If supporters like you don’t want to do that be our true fans guests and take the chance to giosupport one if the plastic fans.

    You cannot compare a Chelsea team which has John “the back stabber and wife snatcher” Terry, Frank “the coach” Lampard, Didier “the whole world owes him” Drogba, and Fernando “the kid who should be a girl” Torres.

    AVB had no chance at all with these guys who control the dressing room. Roman “The boss/coach/manager” listens to the players more than the players and he had Robert Di “traitor” Matteo who reports to him every single day.
