Following reports linking Carlo Ancelotti with replacing Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager, here’s how the fans are reacting.

Liverpool have moved swiftly to deny the reports linking them with contacting Ancelotti – no doubt done to ensure that a claim for constructive dismissal cannot be made, and also to avoid a similar situation to when previous owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks approached Jurgen Klinsmann while Rafa Benitez was in charge.

But the news of Ancelotti’s potential future employment on Merseyside has seen fans react in their droves, with many supporters excited by the prospect of the Italian being in the Anfield hot-seat.

Of course they’ll deny it.

Bodgers is still manager, no point undermining him even more than he’s undermining himself unless a firm decision has been made.

Doesn’t mean it is / isn’t true though.

Conor McKillion in the comments:

I have been saying this since May.

Carlo Ancelotti is a world class elite coach who has won the European Cup 3 times and numerous leagues and domestic cups. He is the sort of manager we should be after and who would attract top players and could help keep our best players here (Coutinho namely, Can in a couple of years etc).

The only issue is if he will work under a director of football and with a lesser budget than he had at Milan, PSG or Real Madrid. I know he wanted a year off to get surgery and chill out so do we go for him now or wait until January or later when the season could already be wrote off.

I believe he is a perfect fit, the way he speaks about Liverpool is lovely and he clearly respects the club.

This is all coming from a Northern Irishman who was never part of the Rodgers out brigade until May but it is plain to see something needs to change drastically and soon, Rodgers is done, the squad are not playing for him and the fans know it, he should know the time is right to call it a day.

Benvenuto amico mio Carlo!!
