Roy Hodgson has finally been confirmed as Rafael Benitez's successor in the Liverpool hotseat on Thursday morning where he is thought to have signed a three-year contract.

The great success at Craven Cottage in the following year has convinced Liverpool to turn their gaze in his direction after the departure of Benitez who had a disappointing 2009/2010 season.

An agreement was reached with Fulham for a compensation package and Hodgson is now looking forward to starting his new role.

He was presented to the media for the first time as the Liverpool manager, where he began by talking about how honoured he was to take the job and is not worried what might happen if the club was sold.

Asked whether his main aim was the Premier League title, Hodgson said "I think you are probably being unfair there. The ambitions of this club should always be of the very highest level and that is where we are  going to be aspiring to.
He also said "I am here for the long haul. I am here to do the job that needs to be done, hopefully winning trophies very, very quickly, and if we can't then I will have to hope the club has patience with me."
