Rodgers: Moyes Must Be Strong

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says that David Moyes has to be "strong" after it was revealed that he will succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

Ferguson has decided to call it a day on his stunning 26-year run with the Red Devils, having become arguably the greatest manager in English Premier League history.

Everton's Moyes has been handed the task of following on from his fellow Scot, and Rodgers admits that it will be a difficult job.

"You have to respect the great past and, when I came in after Kenny Dalglish, I said it was a competition I could never win! This is a guy who was voted the greatest player in the club's history and has done so many great things on and off the pitch, so he rightly gets that iconic status," he told reporters.

"But I wasn't daunted by the task of replacing a club legend. I didn't become a manager at 35 because I was shy. I arrived here with 20 years of work - it wasn't just presented to me. Kenny was an incredible man and David going in after Sir Alex Ferguson will be the same.

"David will come in and look to impose his ­personality and it will take time because of the number of years his predecessor was there. But you have got to be strong enough to come in and at least know at the end of it all you've done it the way you wanted to do it."
