Liverpool set to announce new coach

2:21 pm on 30 June 2010

Roy Hodgson will be named as the new manager of English football club Liverpool according to a report in the Liverpool Echo newspaper

The paper says Hodgson will sign a contract with the club after Liverpool negotiated a compensation package with English Premier League rivals Fulham for his release.

Hodgson is set to replace Rafael Benitez after the Spanish manager's six-year spell in charge at Anfield ended earlier this month by mutual consent.
