Potential Rodgers replacements admits wanting Liverpool job

Frank De Boer has admitted that he would like to coach Liverpool, as pressure mounts on Brendan Rodgers.

The Anfield club have had a mediocre start to the new season, with plenty of the club’s fans questioning whether the Northern Irishman is the manager to lead the Merseyside outfit forward.

Over recent weeks there has been more and more reports that the powers that be at Liverpool are ready to replace the former Swansea chief with the likes of Carlo Ancelotti or Jurgen Klopp – with De Boer’s name also being thrown into the mix.

The current Ajax boss has won four Eredivisie titles in his five years in charge at the Amsterdam Arena and has admitted that the coaching positions at Anfield and Newcastle were both of interest to him.

“Liverpool and Newcastle – with the supporters behind them – are fantastic environments to coach in,” The Mirror quote the Dutchman as saying.

“But this year it is important for me to do well at Ajax and then we will see.”

Liverpool face fierce local rivals Everton at Goodison Park this weekend, with a defeat sure to increase the pressure on Rodgers further.
