first_img 7 7 5. Marcelo Bielsa (Free agent) – The Argentinian tactician did some excellent work with Chile, Athletic Bilbao and Marseille in recent seasons, but quit his job with the French side in August after conflicts with the management. He’s a perfectionist and gets his teams to work hard in pursuit of glory. 7 2. Carlo Ancelotti (Free agent) – One of the most decorated managers in the history of the game, Ancelotti is currently available. Controversially sacked at the end of last season by Real Madrid, he helped them claim their tenth European Cup/Champions League title in 2014. Elsewhere, he won the Champions League twice with AC Milan, the Premier League and FA Cup double with Chelsea and the Serie A and Ligue 1 titles with AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain respectively. 7 A disappointing 1-1 draw with Norwich City has cranked up the pressure on Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.Fans are beginning to call for the Northern Irishman’s head as the Reds struggle for form in the Premier League, despite his tactical tinkering.Jurgen Klopp is a man many of the Anfield faithful want to see in the hot seat should Rodgers find himself dethroned in the coming weeks, but who else could the Reds get in to replace him? talkSPORT takes a look.Click the right arrow to see seven possible replacements for Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool… 6. Andre Villas-Boas (Zenit St Petersburg) – The ex-Chelsea and Tottenham boss has already revealed he’ll leave the Russian side at the end of the season, but the Reds could tempt him to quit earlier should Brendan Rodgers vacate the throne at Anfield. He won the Russian Premier League last season in his first full campaign. 7 1.

Liverpool could talk to him in the coming months about the possibility of replacing Rodgers, but will the lure of managing a side in the Champions League rule out the Reds? 4. Frank de Boer (Ajax) – The Dutchman was linked with the Liverpool job when Brendan Rodgers took over and has since admitted he’d love to manage the club (and Tottenham). He won four Eredivisie titles in a row before Ajax lost the crown to PSV Eindhoven last year. De Boer was also named JFK Greatest Man in 2013 by JFK magazine in the Netherlands. 7 3. Unai Emery (Sevilla) – With Sevilla failing to register a single win so far this season in La Liga, the talented Spanish boss could possibly be tempted to jump ship. He guided his men to back-to-back Europa League triumphs in 2014 and 2015 but lost key players Aleix Vidal and Carlos Bacca in the summer. 7 7. Lucien Favre (Free agent) – A week ago Borussia Moenchengladbach had called Favre ‘unfireable’ as they struggled to follow up last season’s success but after another defeat at the weekend, he chose to leave on his own accord. He saved the club from relegation in 2011 and got them into the Champions League for the first time with a third place finish last season. Liverpool could snap up a talented manager if they choose to move for him.last_img read more
