Liverpool are reportedly been in talks with Roma coach Claudio Ranieri in relation to offering the 59 year old the managerial post at Anfield in the summer. The former Chelsea boss is free to leave his post at the Stadio Olimpico in June and is apparently open to a return to England according to Italian source Leggo.
Kenny Dalglish will remain in his post as caretaker manager until the end of the season and whilst the Scot will be considered for the position on a permanent basis, the club’s owners are also drawing up a short list of potential candidates which will apparently include Ranieri.
The much travelled manager has plied his trade across Spain, Italy and England and is well respected in the game. His current spell at Roma has been a success, he helped the Giallorossi to within 90 minutes of their first Serie A title in a decade before being pipped to the post by Inter Milan.
Ranieri’s stint at Chelsea helped lay the ground work for Jose Mourinho’s successful era at the West London club. The Stamford Bridge club registered Premier League finishes of sixth, sixth, fourth and second before ‘The Special One’ claimed the title in his first season at the club.
Other candidates linked with the Liverpool position are said to include Frank Rijkaard, Didier Deschamps, Owen Coyle and Martin O’Neill.
