Brendan Ridgers wondering where he will go after he is sacked by Liverpool at the end of next season

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers has agreed a deal to become the new Liverpool manager, and initial signs show that the footballing fraternity thinks this is a positive move by the Anfield club.

The 39-year-old will sign a three-year contract, and his appointment is likely to be officially confirmed within 24 hours.

Former England striker Gary Lineker, tweeted:

"I feel this could be a very shrewd appointment. Totally gets the way the game's evolving."

Others including Lineker's Match Of The Day sidekick, Alan Hansen, agreed. He tweeted:

"Yeah, that's right."

Irish bloke, Mark Lawrenson, ever the funny man, tweeted a giggle.

Rodgers' managerial career started in 2008 at Watford after coaching spells at Reading and Chelsea. After his appointment as Swansea manager in July 2010, Rodgers guided the Welsh side to promotion to the top flight in May 2011.

Swansea fans tweeted their anger at the proposed appointment. One tweeted:

"Hands off our Brendan!"

Another, named simply Swanfan68, tweeted:

"I agree."

Others were less polite. A hostile DaiEvans2287954673 tweeted:

"It's a bloody disgrace, that's what it is!"

Tens of thousands of other people tweeted their reactions to the news, but tweeting is so shit that I can't be bothered to tell you what they tweeted.
