Next Liverpool Manager Betting

K Updated

Rafael Benitez has all the credentials to be next Liverpool manager.

Rafael Benitez ticks all the right boxes.

The way that Fenway Sports Group has set about recruiting a new manager seems to be on the face of it a laughing stock.

Names have been bandied about from experienced managers like Guardiola and Mourinho to the inexperienced Martinez. The question is do FSG know what they are doing?

The unequivocal answer is yes.

(Here is a must read for all Reds fans.)

In European football we are used to seeing one manager fired and then hours later a replacement named.

All along it was obvious that the new guy had already been approached and a deal thrashed out before sacking the existing incumbent.

This is not how you approach the problem Stateside.

In American sports it is common to draw up a long shortlist of candidates for the job and then narrow the selection down to fit your criteria. In this way you make sure that whilst not necessarily leaving no stone unturned you are operating with a broad "modus operandi" and hopefully the best candidate will show him or herself at interview time.

Rafael Benitez is that ideal candidate for Liverpool and the reason for me saying that lies in trying to assemble a broken jigsaw that is Liverpool Football Club.

The missing piece is Lucas.

In 2004/05, Liverpool lost 14 times in the Premier League, gained a total of 58 points and finished 37 points off the pace behind Everton. That season also produced several very strong cup runs.

The next season they won the European Cup.

Everyone believes that Dalglish should have been given more time but it would seem that his 80's psyche is what persuaded the owners to part company and try to drag the club kicking and screaming into a new modern age.

Most Liverpool supporters also believe that Benitez should have been given more time to develop the Academy and produce more players of the like of Lucas whom he stuck by even when the lad was having a hard time of it. For Lucas read Henderson.

If Fenway Sports Group are going to approach the new manager problem in a pragmatic way as it looks like they are doing then only one candidate has the ability, experience and CV to back up their rhetoric.

The question is will FSG rule him out before interview stage? If they follow their own processes then he should at least be granted the opportunity to present his case.
