Danny Murphy suggested on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (October 5, 2015) that Liverpool fans will not want Jose Mourinho as their manager.
Liverpool are looking for a new manager at the moment, having sacked Brendan Rodgers on Sunday evening.
Mourinho is currently in his second spell at Premier League rivals Chelsea, but he is under pressure at the moment due to his side’s disappointing results so far this season.
“If Chelsea were to push him and he became available, would Liverpool be stupid not to try to get him? Would the fans even want him? That is the question,” former Liverpool midfielder Murphy said on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (October 5, 2015).
One suspects that Liverpool chiefs do have someone in mind, as it is hard to envisage that they would sack Rodgers without making plans for the immediate future.
As things stand, Mourinho is the Chelsea boss and it does not look likely that the defending Premier League champions would sack him anytime soon.
If the Blues wanted to get rid of him, then they would have by now, as the international break would have allowed them time to look for a successor.
Liverpool will appoint a replacement for Rodgers before the Premier League resumes, which means that Mourinho is not going to be that man.
