Ex-Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has denied that Liverpool have contacted him for the vacant managerial post at Anfield, following Brendan Rodgers’ sacking, as claimed by the Daily Express.
Rodgers was dismissed from his post last night after just three years at Liverpool, with club owners feeling the Northern Irishman is not the man to lead the club to glory. The former Swansea boss was much touted to leave the Reds’ managerial role during the summer after the club’s performances last season, but the club supremos decided to wait till yesterday.
Meanwhile, Rodgers’ spell at Liverpool finally ended on Sunday evening, and a search for a new manager has immediately started. As per the Express, former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp and Ancelotti have been pinpointed as replacements, but the Italian boss has revealed to the newspaper that he has not had any offers from Liverpool.
“I have not had an offer from Liverpool,” Ancelotti told the publication.
The Express’ report seems to be in contrast with what Sky Sports were saying this morning, as the media giants stated that Liverpool have been in contact with Ancelotti’s reps in order to negotiate the possibility of offering him the manager’s job at Anfield.
The Reds finished sixth in the Premier League last season and they currently occupy the 10th position on the log this season, as they have been dire in attack and woeful in defence.
Should Ancelotti become Liverpool’s boss, the Merseyside club would no doubt be getting one of the most accomplished managers in the world. The Italian boss won the Champions League trophy during his spell as boss of Real Madrid – his third CL trophy.
