It's official. Bleacher Report has launched in the UK and some of the biggest figures in English football have been reacting to the news.

England manager Roy Hodgson knows all about pressure. He accepted the poisoned chalice of coaching the world's most consistently underwhelming national side, after all.

Returning Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has urged B/R to publish only stories confirming his greatness. If we don't, he'll be staying away and he's telling you lot to do the same.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been waiting a long time for the taste of success. Is Bleacher Report UK the excuse for a celebration he's been looking for? 

Fellow Scouser Wayne Rooney, bless him, is a little confused by Bleacher Report's launch. 

As for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, he claims to have missed B/R's UK launch completely. His Liverpool counterpart Brendan Rodgers is all too willing to oblige with some advice, however.
