Career Summary

An impressive first season as a manager in the Barclays Premier League with newly promoted Swansea City in 2011/12 earned Brendan Rodgers the opportunity to take charge of Liverpool ahead of the 2012/13 campaign.

After his playing career was cut short by injury, Northern Irishman Rodgers spent nine years as an academy manager at Reading before being spotted by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who decided to bring him into the backroom staff at Stamford Bridge. Rodgers’ progress earned him the job as Chelsea reserve team manager in 2006 and it wasn’t long before he made the step into senior management, with Championship club Watford.

A brief tenure at his former club Reading followed, but his big break came at Swansea ahead of the 2010/11 season. In his debut season, Rodgers guided the Welsh club to promotion to the Premier League for the first time, through the play-offs. Swansea won many admirers for their style of football en route to an 11th place finish in their opening Premier League campaign.

Rodgers guided the club to seventh, but made a bigger impact the following season when he led Liverpool to second place. The Anfield club beat eventual champions Manchester City towards the end of the season to take pole position, but defeat to Chelsea soon after gave the Manchester club a second Barclays Premier League title.
