Christophe Galtier says his dream is to manage Liverpool

A French manager has been speaking about the prospect of one day taking over at Anfield.

St Etienne manager Christophe Galtier has been speaking to Canal Football Club about his coaching aspirations, and his comments make for interesting reading for Liverpool fans.

In a statement later published by, the 47-year-old said, “If I had to choose my destination, I would go to Liverpool. It’s my dream.”

Considering that Liverpool’s FA Cup semi-final defeat against Aston Villa on Sunday will see them trophy-less for another season, Galtier’s comments come at an interesting time.

Brendan Rodgers is likely to come under increased pressure having failed to deliver after last season’s wonderful effort in the league, and his future may not be as secure as it once was.

This is all speculative of course, but Galtier’s open admission may have got the attention of Liverpool’s owners given St Etienne’s own impressive recent form.

The French side are currently fifth in Ligue 1, pushing hard for Champions League qualification and only two points behind third-placed AS Monaco.

Galtier has overseen only six defeats in 33 league games this season but would Liverpool really seek to replace Rodgers at this time?

Only time will tell, but it is clear Anfield remains the dream destination of many in the game, both managers and players.
