Liverpool are reportedly chasing former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur boss Andres Villas Boas to replace struggling manager Brendan Rodgers.
The Times are reporting that Fenway Sports Group (FSG), who own Liverpool, have asked the Portuguese manager to provide them with details of his coaching principles and methods ahead of a possible appointment.
Villas Boas will almost certainly oblige them, having famously ruled himself out of the Burnley job several years ago by providing an overly complicated Powerpoint presentation to the board.
The ex-Chelsea man is now reportedly the leading candidate to replace Rodgers.
Part of FSG’s plans for Liverpool require constant qualification for the Champions League, something that looks unlikely for Rodgers’ side currently.
Villas Boas has undergone a rehabilitation of his reputation since leaving Spurs, with Zenit St Petersburg, his current side, storming to the Russian league title.
Liverpool aren’t even considered true title challengers after the weekend’s goalless draw against Sunderland, despite finishing second last season.
