Carlo Ancelotti denies he has had an offer from Liverpool

The former Chelsea manager has been talking about Liverpool in the wake of Brendan Rodgers' departure.

Carlo Ancelotti has been speaking to the Express about the alleged interest from Liverpool following Brendan Rodgers’ surprise sacking on Sunday.

Rodgers left his post as Liverpool manager following his side’s 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park – a result which left the Reds 10th in the Premier League after eight matches played – and while they are only six points behind current leaders Manchester City, the board clearly felt it was time for a change.

Former Chelsea manager Ancelotti has been suggested as a possible replacement – along with former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp (as reported by Sky Sports) – but the Italian has denied having any contact with Liverpool as yet.

“I have not had an offer from Liverpool,” Ancelotti told Express Sport, but of course that does not mean an offer will not arrive in due course.

We will have to wait and see, but the Reds hierarchy does not have much time to get a new man in place before their next domestic fixture with Tottenham Hotspur in 12 days.
