The Portuguese manager had been linked to possibly taking over from current Reds boss Brendan Rodgers by the Express. However, it looks like this will not happen now.

The 37-year-old has said that he is perfectly happy at current club Zenit St. Petersburg. He was sacked twice in the space of just over two years during his time in the Premier League. Both firings were seen as the result of naive tactics put in to place on the pitch.

Now bruised from that experience, the former FC Porto head coach has said that he has no intention to return

He told reporters, “I’m very happy at Zenit. Returning to England is not in my plans.”

Liverpool were looking in to the possibility of appointing AVB due to the poor start to the season they have endured after coming in as runners up last season. Whether this rejection will mean that they stop looking, no one knows.
