Liverpool will turn to former Aston Villa boss Martin O’Neill as new owners NESV look to replace Roy Hodgson. The under fire Anfield manager is thought to be nearing the axe after a poor start to the season and the 58 year old Northern Irishman is apparently seen as the man to take over the reigns at the Merseyside club.

Roy Hodgson had appeared to be steadying the ship after a series of positive results, including a win over Chelsea, but one win in his last four Premier League games has heaped pressure back on the Croydon born veteran and it appears he may be heading for the chop.

Frank Rijkaard is the marginal favourite to be the next Liverpool boss with some bookmakers but some sources believe that the former Barcelona man may be looking to take a break from the game following his recent sacking by Turkish side Galatasaray and could also be hoping for a job back in his native Holland in the short term. Fellow front runner Martin O’Neill has been out of the game since he left Villa Park in early August and is thought to be very keen on taking the Liverpool job.

Liverpool’s new owners are thought to be keen to make any managerial changes by January at the latest as they would look to any prospective new manager to invest any transfer fund injection and not Roy Hodgson. The club are currently in 10th spot, some seven points from a coveted top four finish.
