Ex-Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers shortlisted for Champions League job

Ex-Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers has been shortlisted for the vacant job at Galatasaray according to reports in Turkey.

The Super Lig giants have parted ways with head coach Hamza Hamzaoglu and have written up a shortlist of potential replacements.

This selection includes the former Liverpool boss, who was axed from Anfield last month after failing to oversee a significant improvement following the Reds’ miserable season last term.

He was replaced on Merseyside by Jurgen Klopp, who has subsequently lost only one match, but Rodgers may not be out of work for long.

Turkish source Fotospor report that the Northern Irishman is being considered for the post, but that he faces competition for the role from current Club Brugge coach Michel Preud’homme.

Should Rodgers choose to seek his fortunes abroad, he would not be the first British manager to look to the continent in order to restore his flagging reputation.

The likes of David Moyes and Steve McClaren also sought to move to the continent in order to prompt an upturn in their fortunes.
