Brendan Rodgers will bring with him three members of his coaching team at Swansea when he is confirmed as the new Liverpool manager.
The 39-year-old Northern Irishman is thought to have put pen to paper on a three year deal at Anfield and comes from the Liberty Stadium along with first-team coach Colin Pascoe, match-analyst Chris Davies and conditioning expert Glen Driscoll.
It is understood that the £4million compensation package Liverpool’s owners, Fenways Sports Group, are giving to Swansea includes deals for these three staff members as well as Rodgers.
Rodgers is expected to be officially unveiled to the world’s media as Reds boss on Friday, once the lucrative kit manufacturing deal with Warrior Sports has begun at midnight tonight.
Many believed a Director of Football or Sporting Director would also be appointed by Liverpool as well as a new manager, but the BBC believe these ideas have been abandoned in favour of Rodgers and his team of staff.
The proposed appointment of Louis Van Gaal as sporting director looked increasingly unlikely on Wednesday night with Rodgers demanding complete control of football matters.
