The Reds’ owners Fenway Sports Group are apparently unhappy with the poor start the Merseyside team have been enduring, and manager Brendan Rodgers seems the obvious target of blame. Their plan for the club includes regular qualification for the Champions League, and they feel that this may not be possible under the current regime.
The waste of the £115 million spent on new players in the summer has supposedly also upset FSG. As such they have started to contemplate sacking their Northern Irish boss.
Andre Villas-Boas is seen as a possible option, and has been asked to outline his coaching style and philosophy as they search for possible options to take charge at Anfield. This would suggest that the club hierarchy are in direct contact with the Portuguese. Why the 37-year-old would want to leave his current job at Zenit St. Petersburg is unknown though.
