Former Real boss has been linked with Anfield in recent weeks
Liverpool have denied suggestions they have been in contact with former Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti about replacing current boss Brendan Rodgers.
The Reds started the season well with victory away to Stoke, where they lost 6-1 on the final day of last season, but have since dipped in form.
Fans have been alarmed with Liverpool’s progress in recent games, going back as far as the latter part of the season, and have become fed up with the lack of success Rodgers has brought to the club.
Ancelotti has been tipped as a potential suitor for the Anfield outfit, but the Reds have denied making an approach to any manager about their availability.
To Rodgers disadvantage he has been without key men Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge, who returned from injury against Norwich City at the weekend.
But the Irishman is coming under increasing pressure, having failed to ensure his side qualified for the Champions League last season.
Liverpool drew at home to newly-promoted Norwich at the weekend, while losing 3-1 at fierce rivals Manchester United and 3-0 at home to West Ham in their two previous league matches.
The Reds host Carlisle in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday evening, looking to progress to the fourth round of the competition.
