Report: Liverpool Denies Contacting Ancelotti

carlo-ancelotti (1)With Liverpool off to a slow start this season, Merseyside is again rumbling over the future of the team’s manager Brendan Rodgers.

But recent reports that the Reds have approached Carol Ancelotti about the manager’s jobs have been refuted, according to a report by ESPNFC.com.

Citing unnamed sources, the report said that Liverpool have not contacted Ancelotti or any other managerial candidate. Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp, most recently of Borussia Dortmund, have been the leading names floated as possible replacement for Rodgers, should Liverpool ownership choose at some point to make a change.

A three-time Champions League winner, Ancelotti is no stranger to the Premier League, having previously managed Chelsea for three years and leading the team to a league title and FA Cup in 2010. He most recently managed Real Madrid and also held the top spot at Juventus and AC Milan.

Rodgers has been at Liverpool since June 2012, when he move to Merseyside from Swansea. He led Liverpool to a second place finished in 2014, but his team has been outside Champions League positioning the other two seasons.
