This has been the story making the papers this morning! I do not think I have gone through a season like this when Liverpool have been dominating the backpages. We are always making the headlines for one reason or the other and most of the time it is not for our on field performances. Now today it is all about the ‘possibility’ of Jose Mourinho being ‘asked’ if he would be interested in the Liverpool job if Rafa was going to quit.

Now Rafa has come out and said that he is not ready to quit. We can only be 100% sure about this when he signs the new contract. But these Mourinho reports got me thinking this morning: would we really want Mourinho to take over if Rafa were to leave us?

I am not too sure if I would want Jose to be at the helm at Anfield. We just have too much bad blood with him since his days at Chelsea. Granted the guy is a brilliant coach and has bought success to Porto, Chelsea and Inter. From a pure footballing perspective, I have no problems with Mourinho as the coach but whether he is the right man for the Anfield job is questionable.

You also have to ask yourself if he himself would want the Liverpool job. He seems to be in love with Chelsea and why would we want a guy who loves one of our biggest rivals to lead us to success.

I just wonder if us as Liverpool fans would welcome Mourinho with open arms, would you?

    Great thing about Maureen is that he is a good motivator. He knows how to instill a winning mentality in his players. I just dont think he would give his all for LFC like he did with Chelski.

    What do you think of Frank Rijkaard? Attack-minded, great motivator and could maybe lure some his ex-Barca players. None of this negative unambitious football we play under Rafa(much as I appreciate everything he has done for LFC).

    Not sure about Rijkaard. For me if Rafa were to leave there is only one man I would want to replace him… King Kenny Dalglish.

      Nah. King Kenny doesn’t have the heart and passion he had before Hillsborough. He may eat live and breath Liverpool but his time came and went. I dont think he would have the same impact he did in the late eighties. It would be a fairytale story if he came back though!
