Hodgson appointment greeted warmly by Liverpool stars

Fulham captain Danny Murphy has told his former Liverpool teammates that Roy Hodgson will be good for them. Liverpool will unveil Hodgson as their new manager today.

And his first task as Kop boss will be to resolve the Anfield futures of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres.

The Sun says Hodgson has the task of keeping star men Torres and Gerrard - as well as Javier Mascherano - on Merseyside.

Real Madrid have been pursuing England's World Cup skipper for months, yet have so far NOT made an official bid and are cooling in their interest.

And Hodgson received a boost after Gerrard's close pal and former Red Murphy gave the thumbs-up to the man he has played under at Craven Cottage for three years.

The appointment is also said to have got the green light from Torres and other senior players such as Jamie Carragher.
