So Kenny has left. What now for Liverpool? The short list of potential new managers for the club apparently includes Andre VIllas-Boas, Roberto Di Matteo and Brendan Rodgers of Swansea City. Ex boss Rafa Benitez has even been mentioned.
It’s almost as if the owners of Liverpool want to take their club further into the mire. Because surely all of the above represent a gamble to varying degrees.
If only soccersweep could make the decisions things would be so much better! Because to us, it is achingly apparent that the only man to take Liverpool forward in a meaningful way is Martin O’Neill.
We have long promoted him as the best man to manage Liverpool and we have suffered fierce resistance in our suggestion from many fans of the club who think that he doesn’t have the pedigree to coach a top team. But the man is a football genius.
We at soccersweep simply hope that he does get the job so that, in 6-9 months time we can gleefully remind you doubters how wrong you were. For us, O’Neill is the only man who can affect a real renaissance at the club and take them back to the top. The Irishman is anything but a gamble.
Make no mistake, Martin O’Neill is the best man for Liverpool now.
