Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has accepted that he will never fulfill his lifelong ambition of managing Liverpool, according to the Mirror.
The 65 year old, who says that he and his father were big Reds fans, was always keen on taking the job at Anfield and that he would also consider becoming manager of England again if given the chance as it is ‘probably the biggest job in the world’.
He added that he hopes that Brendan Rodgers’ can help the club maintain a serious title challenge, as they look to win the English top flight for the first time in 24 years.
Meanwhile, the club are considering a bid for Southampton captain Adam Lallana, the Daily Star understands.
The 25 year old, who has helped the Saints to third place in the Premier League going into the international break, is set to win his first England cap against Chile at Wembley on Friday evening.
Liverpool could be set to make an offer for the midfielder in the January transfer window as Brendan Rodgers looks to bring in players who can make a similar impact as Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, who joined the club almost twelve months ago.
