31 May 2012 08:46

Liverpool are set to unveil Brendan Rodgers as their new manager on Friday after agreeing a compensation package for the Swansea boss and three of his backroom staff.

Rodgers met Liverpool owner John Henry for talks on Wednesday and agreed to take charge of the Merseyside outfit provided the Reds could match the £5 million ($7.8 million) compensation fee in his contract with Swansea.

The 39-year-old Irishman, former Reading and Watford boss, Rodgers is now certain to succeed Kenny Dalglish, who was sacked two weeks ago.

Swansea agreed to let assistant manager Colin Pascoe, performance analyst Chris Davies and head of sports science and medicine Glen Driscoll join Rodgers.
