The 37-year-old has been linked to the job at Anfield in recent weeks, with some reports going as far as saying that he was already in talks with the Merseyside club’s hierarchy. The Portuguese has dismissed those rumours, but at the same time has admitted that he had been approached by the Reds in the past. With him clearly already fairly well rated by the board, this could mean that he would be on the shortlist again should current boss Brendan Rodgers be sacked.
However, AVB has also said that returning to England is definitely not in his plans, and so it would probably take something special to make him return. He was sacked by Chelsea after less than one full season and then Tottenham after a year and a half during his time in the Premier League.
“I chose Zenit also to get away from the media glare. I’ve had my fill of media sensationalism & false promises. I had talks with Liverpool. Returning to England definitely not in my plans, although life takes many turns,” he said to reporters.
“Coaching in England was a positive experience, but also many negative things happened. I was surprised and I still am by the Chelsea chairman (sic) changing his intentions. When I went there in 2011 the idea was to reformulate the team,” he added.
Liverpool may look to replace their current manager Brendan Rodgers is the poor form that has plagued their season continue.
