46-year-old former Liverpool manager takes over at Foxes on contract to June 2022

Brendan Rodgers says Leicester City are a team with huge potential after he was appointed their new manager.

After being in charge of Celtic since 2016, Rodgers returns to the Premier League on a deal until June 2022.

"I’m just delighted to be here," the 46-year-old former Liverpool manager told Leicester's official website. "I think there was a number of reasons [why I joined]. 

"It’s a young squad, a very dynamic squad, it’s got huge potential and you’ve got some of the players with good experience also."

The Northern Irishman achieved 75 wins in 160 Premier League matches as a manager, after leading Swansea City to promotion from the Championship in 2011.

He moved to Liverpool in the summer of 2012, guiding them to a second-place finish in 2013/14.

He enjoyed great success in Scotland, guiding Celtic to back-to-back Scottish Premiership titles as well as winning successive Scottish Cups and the Scottish League Cup three years running.

Rodgers replaces Claude Puel at King Power Stadium.

He was in the crowd to watch Leicester beat Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 on Tuesday night, but his first match in charge will come at Watford on Sunday.
