Following the news on Friday that Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh are to leave the club this summer, attention has turned to who will replace the duo among Brendan Rodgers’ coaching staff.
Former players Sami Hyypia, Jamie Carragher and Bolo Zenden were quickly linked but there’s been no news on whether any of those have either been approached or would be interested in taking up a role at the club.
Another widely reported idea was that academy director Alex Inglethorpe (pictured above) would be promoted to the first-team setup. Ingelthorpe though has been instrumental in changes at the academy and the Liverpool Echo report that the 43-year-old will remain in his role there.
Meanwhile, the Echo also report that former assistant manager Pako Ayestaran would only be interested in a role as manager – although, they use quotes from two months ago.
They say Ayestaran has not yet been approached by the club.
That follows a rather tenuous report in one of the Sunday papers that claimed Liverpool were to appoint Ayestaran and promote Ingelthorpe.
It looks like being a busy week for the Reds as the club look to fill the two positions.
