Roy Hodgson confirms he will become new Liverpool boss

ROY Hodgson this morning told friends he will become the next manager of Liverpool.

The 62-year-old Fulham boss has been favourite for the Anfield hotseat ever since Rafa Benitez left the Reds earlier this summer.

And the LMA manager of the year has confirmed he will be leaving Craven Cottage to move to Merseyside.

Liverpool legend John Aldridge: New boss Roy Hodgson faces Bill Shankly-esque challenge to turn Liverpool around
Big challenge for Hodgson on the cards...

Former Liverpool hero John Aldridge has backed incoming manager Roy Hodgson to use all his experience to complete the "massive job" of turning his new club around.

Hodgson, 62, is expected to be named as the club's new supremo this week after Rafael Benitez left by mutual consent earlier in the summer. With the Reds spiralling into debt and finishing in a disappointing seventh place in the Premier League last season, the Fulham boss has plenty to do.

Aldridge starred on Merseyside in the late 1980s, grabbing 50 goals in 83 appearances before moving to Spain's Real Sociedad. Speaking to Sky Sports News, he insisted Liverpool had the right man in place to get the team back on track.

"He's got a massive job on his hands at Liverpool. I think this is the most important stage in Liverpool's history since Bill Shankly took over with what's happening off the field with the owners and the lack of stability at the club," Aldridge said.

"Something had to happen as soon as possible and you had to go in and test the situation about which players need to go out, what you've got to bring players in and who you can keep.

"That's very, very important as Javier Mascherano has been using the wild card about his wife and there's question marks about Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard. They've got to be sorted out ASAP."

Aldridge added: "His experience is fantastic with the jobs he's done in Italy and Switzerland. A lot of people don't realise where he has been.

"He might have had a bad year or two at Blackburn Rovers, but when you've been in the game as long as he has, you are allowed a few mistakes."

The Club can confirm that Chris Buchtmann has today been transferred to FC Cologne.

Butchmann joined Fulham during the 2010 January transfer window on an 18 month contract and played a number of games for the Club's Development Squad.

The Club would like to wish Chris all the best for the future.

Murphy could be next Fulham boss

DANNY Murphy has emerged as an outside contender to become the next Fulham manager – once Roy Hodgson’s departure to Liverpool is confirmed.

The midfielder was touted as a future boss by no less than Hodgson himself last season, and is already studying for his Uefa coaching licences.

The Whites have gone this route before when they appointed central defender and changing-room favourite Chris Coleman to the job in 2003.

Murphy would be expected to work with the more experienced Ray Lewington, and probably one other senior coach from outside the club.

But despite his inexperience, the former Liverpool, Tottenham and England international commands the respect of a squad that will need to focus on life after Hodgson just three days before they arrive back for training on Monday.

However, former Premiership bosses Alan Curbishley, Sven-Goran Eriksson and Mark Hughes head the bookies list to succeed Hodgson, who took Fulham to the Europa League final last season.

Hangeland top of wanted list

Roy Hodgson's top target is understood to be Fulham defender Brede Hangeland after he is confirmed as Liverpool boss today.

The Anfield club agreed a compensation package with Hodgson's current club late last night and will pay around £2million to secure his services for the next two seasons.

The 62-year-old will take his current number two and goalkeeping coach Mike Kelly with him from Craven Cottage, but after he has dealt with trying to persuade star duo Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres to stay next season, his priority will be the signing of Hangeland.

The Norwegian was a rock at the back for Hodgson at Fulham for the last two seasons, having previously played for him at Viking Stavanger, and is highly regarded by Arsenal.

The 29-year-old signed a new contract at Fulham last season to fend off the Gunners' interest and it could cost as much as £7million to take him to Anfield.

Fulham - Hodgson Gone!
Despite the uncertainty surrounding the England job, the tabloid press are very insistent that Roy Hodgson will be named as the new Liverpool manager.

In fact the news could well be, according to one tabloid, today whilst another reckons it`ll be inside the next forty-eight hours.

All, however, are insistent that Liverpool have agreed a compensation package with Fulham Football Club.

His potential appointment has, reputedly, met with the approval of the more talented Liverpool players and Roy is expected to take Mike Kelly as his number two.

All in all a bad time for Fulham Football Club and all we can ask ourselves is what have they got what we haven`t?

Well, Roy Hodgson for a start!!

Fulham - Birmingham Offer?
Who do they think they`re kidding?

It`s being reported that Birmingham City have had a £6 million deal turned down, by Fulham, for Bobby Zamora.

The deal is thought to have been a four year contract on circa £50,000 a week.

Now we thought we`d seen the last of Birmingham`s interest but apparently Alex McLeish is keen to continue the pursuit of a player that Fulham are desperately trying to tie to a new contract.

Shades of Hull City, last summer, all over again methinks!
