OK, it is in that notoriously unreliable rag the News of The World. But the increasing crisis at Liverpool is pointing towards a managerial change in the summer, with boss Rafa Benitez conveniently blaming the board for the teams failures, perhaps in a desperate attempt to keep his reputation in tact (£40 million he spent last summer by the way)so their Sunday gossip stories may hold some water...
... with Fulham grabbing the headlines this week with their heroic journey to the Europa League final, boss Roy Hodgson's stock has never been higher in his own country (though he has always been highly rated on the continent). So it is perhaps inevitable he is being linked with a move away.
Would Liverpool suit him?
I would be perhaps a good time to leave Craven Cottage - a Europa League final, win or not would be a pretty special way to go out and it can be argued he can take the club no higher. But I get the impression this is just tabloid journos putting 2+2 together.
