Currently managing in Russia with Zenit St Petersburg, Villas-Boas revealed that he was approached by the Reds back in 2012 when they were on the hunt for a Kenny Dalglish replacement.
The Merseyside club opted to go with Brendan Rodgers in the end, with the Portuguese manager instead making the move to Tottenham.
Despite a poor record at both the Blues and Tottenham, the former FC Porto boss has been heavily linked with the Merseysiders job in recent weeks. After a terrible start to the new campaign, Brendan Rodgers’ job security has been brought in to question.
“I had talks with Liverpool,” he said.
“Returning to England definitely not in my plans, although life takes many turns.
“Coaching in England was a positive experience, but also many negative things happened”
AVB has rubbished reports linking him with a return to the Premier League however, confirming his desire to remain with Zenit.
Liverpool have been struggling recently, with their exit from the Champions League group stages of particular disappointment to the fans. With Villas-Boas performing so badly at both Stamford Bridge and White Hart Lane however, the Anfield faithful are unlikely to want to see Rodgers replaced with the young manager.
