Ajax manager Frank de Boer is open to taking over from Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager, according to his twin brother Ronald.

The Dutchman has won four consecutive league titles with Ajax, and has been linked with taking over from Liverpool’s under pressure boss despite rejecting the chance to join the club in 2012.

But brother Ronald believes the former Holland captain would be open to a move to Merseyside now should the opportunity arise.

He told Fox Sports: ‘If Liverpool come now he would certainly think about it.

‘He would certainly not close the door immediately, like he did two years ago.’

Rodgers watched his side slump to a 3-0 defeat against rivals Manchester United on Sunday, having exited the Champions League at the group stage just days earlier.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool’s League Cup tie against Bournemouth, Rodgers said: ‘As a manager you will always have tough periods but I have great confidence in how staff and players work.

‘We just need a little bit of luck and a break and I think we will get that. When we get some consistent results we can push on.’
