Liverpool fans, be afraid
Be very afraid, just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, Sven Goran Eriksson has thrown his hat into the ring for the managers job, and with an admission that apparently he is a life long Liverpool fan!!
I believe that Liverpool did the right thing in sacking Benitez, but even I’d have to admit that Rafa would surely be a better bet than Sven.
The bookies currently have Eriksson 4th in the betting at a best price of 7/1 with Ladbrokes. Martin O’Neill is favourite at 7/4, Roy Hodgson is 9/4 and King Kenny is 4/1.
According to one Liverpool fan I heard on a radio phone in, Roy Hodgson isn’t up to the job, as he has never managed a club as big as Liverpool.
Make your own minds up on that one!
I’m sure he’s never managed a club in as much disarray as Liverpool. The fan in question also said he would gladly welcome back a man who hasn’t managed for the best part of 10 years though.
Romantic as a Dalglish return sounds, football is a serious business and surely Kenny has had his day.
A caretaker capacity, yes by all means. But next permanent manager…..not for me.
