ANFIELD CHIEFS WILL ASK ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS TO MAKE KOP GREAT AGAIN
Andre Villas-Boas could resurrect his managerial career at Liverpool
ANDRE VILLAS-BOAS will this week be offered the job of succeeding sacked Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish.
Bruised owners John W Henry and Tom Werner, who have come under fire from large sections of Liverpool’s support for their botched handling of Dalglish’s departure, are cutting short their interview process.
An original plan to invite around 10 candidates to state their cases to become the new Liverpool manager has been hastily scrapped.

This source suggests that former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is now leading the race to take over from Kenny Dalglish and that a deal could be in the offing this week. The young Portuguese boss didn’t last long at Stamford Bridge but his success at FC Porto has led many to see the 34 year old as one of the best up and coming managers in the business.
Liverpool’s American owners have a long term plan in mind and perhaps a younger boss is more suited to such a task than a veteran such as Dalglish and if indeed John W. Henry does offer the post to Villas-Boas, one would imagine he would happily take the post given that he has found himself out of work for the past two and a half months.
In his debut season as FC Porto boss the local born boss lead his side to a domestic double and a Europa League triumph, losing just two games out of 51 in the process. At Chelsea things were not so smooth and many suggested that his inability to stamp his authority on the elder statesman in his Blues squad effectively cost him his job when he was somewhat harshly sacked after just nine months in post.
Villas-Boas may well have learned from his brief spell at the West London club and better manage established stars this time around.
