Do you think Carnlough man Brendan Rodgers is the right choice as the new manager of Liverpool FC?
The Carnlough man started out as a defender with Ballymena United and then transferred to Reading reserves at the age of 18, before a knee injury ended his career on the pitch just two years later.
But Rodgers appears to have found his calling as a manager, guiding Swansea City to promotion and then an impressive 11th place finish in their debut season in the top flight.
"He got into the coaching and the rest is history, you know," his cousin Kieran Rodgers told UTV. "He's done well for Reading and Chelsea and now Swansea, so it's good."
Having captured the attention of Liverpool's American owners at Fenway Sports Group, Rodgers' official installation as successor to Kenny Dalglish should be complete by the end of the week.
While Liverpool played their cards close to their chest, it fell to the Swans to confirm their manager's exit.
"Brendan has informed us that he would like to take up the offer to manage Liverpool," chairman Huw Jenkins said, having maintained since the speculation began to hot up that he would not stand in the way of such a move.
"At the moment, we are currently in talks with the owners to agree compensation."
While Swansea will be sorry to lose such a promising manager - who had already led them to big wins over clubs like Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool themselves - they are thought to be in line for £4-5m in compensation.
