Brendan Rodgers: Liverpool history lured me to Anfield

New Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says the "history" and the "frustrations" of the club was what attracted him to Anfield, after being confirmed as Kenny Dalglish's successor.

The former Swansea manager says the process of securing the Premier League title begins today and pledges his long-term commitment to the club.

The Swans are understood to have agreed a £7m compensation package for losing the services of Rodgers.
