Vorm: Rodgers best in the league

02 June 2012 08:47

Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm believes Liverpool have appointed the best manager in the Premier League after they announced Brendan Rodgers as their new boss.

Rodgers left Swansea to take the vacant managerial role at Anfield and Vorm believes that Liverpool have made a great decision.

"I think it's the best move Liverpool can make," he told Sky Sports News.

"I've worked with him for a year and he's the best manager I've worked with - and I think he is the best manager maybe in the Premier League.

"He is quite young but very experienced and I think for Liverpool it's the best they could get. For him it's beautiful."

Despite declaring his support for Rodgers, Holland international Vorm was upset to lose the man who brought him to England last summer.

"For us it's the worst thing that could happen," he said. "It's disappointing but I think we showed throughout the season what we're capable of.

"If we can keep the club together we can go on playing good football under the new manager."

Vorm will certainly not be following Rodgers to Anfield this summer after Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins announced the club had come to an agreement with Liverpool regarding their players. He said the deal stops Rodgers signing players from his former club for 12 months.

"We have got some protection on Brendan coming back for our players in the initial period, which I think is the right thing," Jenkins told talkSPORT. "He has got a timescale to assess things there and that is going to take him while so I've got no worries there. We have got a 12-month respite."
