Paul Clement’s response when asked if Ancelotti would be good for Liverpool

Derby County head coach Paul Clement is a big fan of Carlo Ancelotti.

Derby County head coach Paul Clement said on Sky Sports 1 on Sunday evening that former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is suitable for the Liverpool managerial job.

Liverpool are on the lookout for a new manager after dismissing Brendan Rodgers on Sunday.

The Reds’ decision to part company with Rodgers came in the wake of the 1-1 draw with Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the Premier League.

Ancelotti is without a managerial job at the moment, having parted company with Real Madrid at the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

Clement, who was appointed the Derby head coach at the start of the season, has a long-standing relationship with Ancelotti, having worked with him at Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Madrid.

The Englishman has explained why the Italian tactician would be a good managerial appointment for Liverpool.

"Would Carlo be suitable for that position? 100%," said Clement when posed the question on Sky Sports 1 on Sunday evening (October 4, 2015) following the game between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in La Liga.

"He had a great career as a player and a sterling career as a coach as well in terms of what he has won and the clubs he has managed…

"He has got all the credibility, he is a fantastic man-manager, and he would be a perfect appointment for that club."

Liverpool are 10th in the Premier League table at the moment with 12 points from eight matches, just three points behind fourth-place Leicester City.
