Pellegrini: Would Love To Manage Liverpool

Manuel Pellegrini has claimed that Liverpool have made an approach to install him as Roy Hodgson 's successor at Anfield – and that he would welcome the chance. Hodgson has overseen Liverpool 's worst start to a season since 1953 and has been under mounting pressure to leave from sections of the Reds support – but he has stated his determination to remain in the job. He may not have much choice if this is true, as Pellegrini is hopeful of returning to management by the end of the year. Pellegrini was sacked by Real Madrid in May, despite collecting their biggest ever points tally in La Liga last season at an average of 2.53 per game – but crucially he failed to pip Barcelona to the title. He is said to favour a move to the Premiership and sees Liverpool as the ideal club for that given the managerial situation and Latin contingent. "Yes, Liverpool contacted me." he said. "It is a great club with many Spanish players who I already know, and it is my intention to work in the Premier League. " "I had lots of offers, some that I like. Ideally, I would like to find a club in December. "
