Andre Villas-Boas suggests that talks were held when Brendan Rodgers replaced Kenny Dalglish.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is a man under pressure – but it appears that he wasn’t the only manager being lined up to replace Kenny Dalglish in the first place, with reports from the Daily Star suggesting that former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that he held talks over the Anfield position.
Rodgers has come under increasing pressure since the Reds were meekly knocked out of the Champions League by Swiss champions FC Basel, with some suggestions that replacements were being lined up, but Villas-Boas’ performances as manager of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are unlikely to mean that Reds fans are unhappy they didn’t go with him:
“I had talks with Liverpool. Returning to England definitely not in my plans, although life takes many turns.”
