Galatasaray Set To Sack Riijkard For Liverpool understands Frank Rijkaard is on the brink of quitting Galatasaray. The Turkish club are believed to have held an emergency board meeting on Monday to discuss Rijkaard's future after a disappointing start to the season. Galatasaray are currently languishing in ninth spot in the Turkish Super Lig and the pressure has intensified on Rijkaard following the weekend defeat to Ankaragucu. Rijkaard is believed to be ready to leave and is ready for a new challenge after a disappointing spell in Turkey. The news is sure to fuel speculation that Rijkaard could be a contender for the Liverpool job, should Roy Hodgson lose his role at Anfield. Former Barcelona coach Rijkaard was a contender prior to Hodgson's appointment. And he is thought to be keen on the switch if the Reds' new owners end up losing patience with Hodgson with the club just one place off the bottom of the Premier League.
