Brendan Rodgers has seen his side struggle for consistency this term and having seen his side take a big step backwards in 2014/15 it’s understandable that the Northern Irishman’s tenure in charge at Anfield would be called into question.
In 2013/14 Liverpool fought Man City hard for the Premier League title, with Luis Suarez proving key to the Merseyside outfit’s push for major honours, however the Uruguayan was subsequently sold to Barcelona and this was a key reason why Rodgers’ side slipped out of the top four all together, finishing last term in sixth spot.
45-year-old Dutchman Frank De Boer, who was an accomplished player in his day, has helped Ajax to four Eredivisie titles since taking over as manager at the Amsterdam ArenA in 2010 though last term he saw arch rival PSV Eindhoven secure the domestic crown.
The Daily Mirror claims that Frank De Boer was previously in the running to replace Kenny Dalglish in charge at Liverpool and quotes the Ajax boss as stating;
“Liverpool and Newcastle – with the supporters behind them – are fantastic environments to coach in. But this year it is important for me to do well at Ajax and then we will see.”
