The thought of coaching Liverpool has bought Roma coach Claudio Ranieri to his feet, but he showed broad shoulders in relation to his immediate future.
Ranieri claimed his days at Roma were safe on Saturday following suggestions he had five months left in the eternal city as a new contract was yet to land on his desk.
Yet despite his confidence, reports claim Liverpool were looking at him as a possible candidate for a role there following his Premier League experience at Chelsea.
And the 59-year-old from Testaccio has opened the Anfield door.
“I don’t know what I will do next year, but I am happy a prestigious side like Liverpool are thinking about me,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. (Goal.com)
As revealed on this site earlier this month, Claudio Ranieri has confirmed his interest in taking over at Liverpool next season. Kenny Dalglish will continue as caretaker boss until the summer and then the Merseyside club will consider options for a permanent successor and the former Chelsea manager is keen on taking the job.
Some sources believe that the Roma boss will happily leave the Stadio Olimpico when his current deal runs out when the Serie A season comes to an end and there is even some talk of Carlo Ancelotti being lined up to take over at Roma, a club the current Chelsea boss led to the Serie A title when he was the club captain during the 80s.
Dalglish will be considered for the permanent post at Anfield and a number of other high profile managers have been linked with the job including the likes of Didier Deschamps, Frank Rijkaard and Martin O’Neill.
