Liverpool chase former United assistant


The Merseyside club wants Rene Meulensteen to become Brendan Rodgers’ no.2

The ex-United coach is being lined up as part of a new look back room staff at Anfield.

Meulensteen spent six years as Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant at Manchester United before brief spells as manager of Anzhi Makhachkala and Fulham.

Any move for the Dutchman wouldn’t be without controversy as the former United assistant previously criticized Rodgers by stating his ‘biggest failure is that he’s not invested in his staff.’

Pako Ayestaran, who used to work alongside Rafael Benitez at Liverpool, is also believed to be keen on the position, according to the Daily Telegraph.

What next for Liverpool?

Following the signing of Danny Ings from Burnley, Liverpool chiefs are looking to freshen up Brendan Rodgers’ back room staff after the dismissals of Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh.

Pascoe, who joined the club back in 2012 when Brendan Rodgers was appointed as manager, was dismissed after an end-of-season performance review.

Rodgers accepted the club needs to bring in a top-level coach after a rather disappointing sixth-place finish last season which saw them miss out on Champions League football.

The Northern Irishman is also the first Liverpool manager in more than half a century to not pick up any silverware in his first three seasons.
