I was doing my daily morning rounds across the various websites on the Internet this morning and a lot of reports are emerging that ex Real Madrid boss, Manuel Pellegrini has emerged as a surprise candidate to take over the vacant managers job at Anfield.

May 04, 2010 - Madrid, C. Madrid, Spain - MADRID, 04/05/2010.- Real Madrid's Chilean coach Chilean Manuel Pellegrini, during a press conference held to inform about the next match that his team will play against RCD Mallorca team, in Madrid, Spain, 04 May 2010. Real Madrid will face Mallorca in a Spanish First Division League soccer match at Ono stadium in Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands, on 05 May 2010.


This news has caught me by surprise as I had not even thought of Pellegrini being our manager until this morning. On first thoughts. I would not want him to be our next boss. I think I still have a heavy bias towards Kenny Dalglish coming back. I can not see anyone else in my opinion being the next boss besides King Kenny.

But as a fan I have to look at all possibilities and consider Pellegrini as a potential candidate. Fair enough, Pellegrini did a decent job last season managing Real Madrid but he came up short against Barcelona in the race for the league title but he ran them very close. Credit to him. He sucked in the Champions League so that does not bode well. He had some world class talent at his disposal and still failed to win the league and at Liverpool he could potentially be arriving at a team without as many individual world class stars as he had at Real Madrid. So I ask myself the question, “Is he good enough to manage a team with out the stars he had at Real Madrid?”

What are your thoughts of Pellegrini taking over?
