Swansea City have officially confirmed that manager Brendan Rodgers will leave the club.
Following on from discussions with Liverpool's owners, Brendan has informed us that he would like to take up their offer to manage Liverpool. At the moment we are currently in talks with the owners to agree compensation. We are trying to finalise that within the next 24 hours.
Although we are very disappointed to lose such a talented, young British manager, we didn't wish to stand in his way. We wish Brendan every success in the future. We will always remain good friends and we thank him for all his hard work and passion at this football club over the past two years.
