As widely expected, journeyman manager Roy Hodgson has been appointed the new manager of English Premier League side Liverpool. The 62-year-old arrives at Anfield on a three-year deal, at a crucial point in the history of the club who remain England’s most successful.

Hodgson is believed to have been the Liverpool board’s first choice to succeed Rafael Benitez. The new boss told Liverpool’s official website that he was delighted to be accepting what he regards as the biggest job in club football.

One of the first tasks for the former Fulham boss will be to secure the futures of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres after both were linked with moves away from Anfield. Hodgson also becomes Liverpool’s first English manager since 1998.
