Pen Pic

The former Chelsea coach replaced club legend Kenny Dalglish as manager at the end of the 2011-2012 season after the team's 8th place finish was deemed insufficient by the Liverpool owners.

A brief career as a player was cut short by injury and Rodgers' quickly turned his attention to coaching and became Reading's academy manager for 9 years before being spotted by Jose Mourinho in 2004.

After spending two years at Stamford Bridge the ambitious Rodgers made the step up to manager by joining Watford.

Rodgers acquitted himself well and a fine end to the season saw the Hornets finish a respectable 13th in the Championship.

Next for Rodgers was a return to Reading but despite a good start to the season, Rodgers parted company with the club in December 2009 after a torrid run of results.

Seven months later he would make his return with Swansea City and within a year had restored the Welsh side to the top division of English football for the first time in three decades.

His inaugural season in the Premier League was a fine one with the team finishing safely in mid-table and earning countless plaudits along the way for their aesthetically pleasing brand of football.

A well respected and considered person, the Liverpool job provides Rodgers' with by far his biggest challenge to date.
