Hodgson's biggest Liverpool flop still searching for a club

A link to join former Wolves boss Stale Solbakken at Copenhagen has surfaced for Christian Poulsen.

Roy Hodgson's recent travails with England have certainly stirred memories among Liverpool fans, who will never forget his dismal spell in charge of the club.

Thankfully brief, Hodgson's time at the Reds was stretched out by the disappointing players he signed remaining on the club's books.

One of those was Christian Poulsen, the Danish international signed for £5 million. A year later Kenny Dalglish sold him to Evian for half the amount.

For that loss, Poulsen made only 12 Premier League appearances, but the club at least shifted him from their wage bill as promptly as they could.

It was three years ago Poulsen was sold, and now he finds himself without a club and struggling to attract great interest.

At 34 however he is not planning on hanging up his boots just yet, and is considering a return to his native Denmark.

After being released by Ajax last season, a switch to FC Copenhagen could be on the horizon.

Manager Stale Solbakken, previously of Wolves, is aiming to bring him back to the club where he began his career, but Poulsen is reportedly stalling on the offer, which also includes a potential coaching role.
