It had been confirmed weeks back now, but today Liverpool announced the extension of Brendan Rodgers’ contract, believed to tie him down until 2018.

Under Rodgers this season, Liverpool have become a force to be reckoned with having finished second in the Premier League behind Manchester City, having looked destined to win a first league title in 24 years until suffering a 2-0 loss at the hands of Chelsea with just two games to spare.

The all-action attacking style of football has not only won over Liverpool fans, but many football supporters nationwide, and the club hierarchy are keen to see the fledgling side progress under Rodgers’ watchful eye.

Needless to say, Liverpool fans are delighted by the news, and many took to Twitter to express their joy at the official finalisation of the renewal.
