Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has branded new manager Brendan Rodgers the 'perfect person' to take the club forward.
The Reds officially unveiled Rodgers as Kenny Dalglish's successor on Friday morning after securing the manager from Swansea.
The Northern Irish boss impressed while at the helm of the Swans; guiding them into the Premier League and earning plaudits for establishing a brand of attractive attacking football.
Werner believes Rodgers' achievements with the Welsh club, as well as his time spent abroad studying coaching at clubs such as Barcelona, makes him the ideal man to take over as the Reds look to re-establish themselves as a dominant force in the top-flight.
The American chairman said: "In Brendan we have acquired a very exciting and talented and young manager.
"He's a forward-thinking coach at the forefront of a generation of young managers and will bring to Liverpool attacking, relentless football."
He added on Liverpool's official website: "The style of football Brendan is associated with is exactly what we want to see at Anfield.
"Aggressive, attacking play; Swansea were a revelation last season with their brand of entertaining football.
"But it's not just what he has achieved in the last two years that has impressed us; he has dedicated his career to coaching, has studied the game all over Europe and he is the perfect person to take this club forward."
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez was previously thought to a frontrunner for the Reds job and Latics chairman Dave Whelan claimed earlier this week it was the Spaniard, not Rodgers, who was originally Liverpool's first choice.
However, Rodgers has insisted he was always their preferred target and Werner has reinforced his claim.
The chairman added: "We did speak to a number of people in the last few weeks, but I want to say Brendan was the only person we made an offer to. He was our first choice and the right choice."
