En av disse kan erstatte Benitez

Liverpool har startet jakten på Rafael Benitez etterfølger.

Etter flere uker med spekulasjoner, ble det torsdag klart at Rafael Benitez og Liverpool avslutter samarbeidet.

Nå har Liverpool startet jakten på Benitez' erstatter.

Legenden Kenny Dalglish skal sammen med klubbdirektør Christian Purslow lede arbeidet med å få på plass en ny manager på Anfield.

Og ifølge engelske medier har storklubben allerede flere navn de vurderer.

Seks kriterier blir lagt til grunn i trenerjakten:

  • Treneren må ha et etablert navn
  • Han må være rutinert
  • Han må skjønne europeisk fotball
  • Han må kunne jobbe under press
  • Treneren må ha en fast spillestil
  • Godt nettverk

Fulhams manager Roy Hodgson regnes av mange som den heteste kandidaten.

Men Brede Hangelands sjef på Craven Cottage er kun én av flere kandidater klubben vurderer.

Aston Villas Martin O'Neill, Zenit St Petersburgs Luciano Spalletti, Galatasaray-sjef Frank Rijkaard, Slaven Bilic (Kroatias landslagssjef), Mark Hughes (ledig på markedet), Bayern München-manager Louis Van Gaal og Benficas Jorge Jesus er alle i Liverpools søkelys i den såkalte «kartleggingsfasen», hevder flere ulike engelske medier.

Liverpool håper på å ha en ny manager ansatt neste måned. Frem til en endelig løsning på plass vil trolig Sammy Lee lede Liverpool-treningene.
