(GSM) – Roy Hodgson will be named the new manager at Liverpool today.
The Daily Mail reports the current Fulham boss will be named the new manager at Anfield later today after reaching an agreement over a two-year deal.
62-year-old Hodgson will replace Rafael Benitez who left the club this summer after a six-year stint at the Merseyside club.
The Liverpool bosses have ended a month-long quest for a new manager after assessing a short-list that also included Manuel Pellegrini and Didier Deschamps.
Hodgson’s broad experience and his recent performances with Fulham gave him a decisive edge, and he will begin his Anfield reign with immediate effect on a two-year deal worth around £3million a year. Fulham will receive around £2.5m in compensation.
