Steven Gerrard and Craig Bellamy back new boss Brendan Rodgers appointment with Bellamy describing the appointment as a “match made in heaven”
Gerrard insists Rodgers was Liverpool's first choice as manager
'I can go on record and guarantee he was first choice,' said Gerrard.
Kenny Dalglish was replaced by Rodgers at the start of this month and Bellamy believes the Northern Irishman is deserving of his chance to take the reins following his success with Swansea City.
“First of all, he is a very good guy, a very, very good guy,” he said of Rodgers. “Secondly, he knows his football.
“What he has done at Swansea is nothing short of remarkable. Swansea had it in place because Roberto Martinez built a structure. So everything around the club was brilliant for Brendan Rodgers – but didn’t he grasp it and stamp his authority on it/
“Liverpool is not that far away from having that structure. He knows he’s coming into one of the most remarkable football clubs in the world but it is a chance he deserves. I feel if he can approach this job in the way he did at Swansea then it will be a match made in heaven.”
