Jose Mourinho has backed Brendan Rodgers to bring success back to Liverpool ahead of his appointment on Friday.
The Real Madrid boss knows Rodgers well from their time together during his stint with Chelsea.
Mourinho has always backed Rodgers and he is delighted that he has now been given the chance at Anfield.
"I am very happy with his appointment at Liverpool, especially because he did it as a consequence of all his amazing work at Swansea," he told The Sun.
"Brendan is a good man, a family guy and a friend.
"When he joined us at Chelsea he was a young coach with lots of desire to learn.
"But he was also a coach with ideas, who was ready not just to listen but also to communicate and share."
