We don't need any other DOF as Royhendo was mentioning, we already have the best DOF for LFC at the club.
Would be very interesting to see if Pep does decide to leave(his confirmation is due tomorrow).
Would he decide to take an year off?- But that would be highly unlikely as most of the clubs would be lobbying for him. NO words are permanent in football. Luís André de Pina Cabral e Villas-Boas said he wants to win the CL with Porto and take Porto to the 'next' level, one year on he is jobless. Pep might just consider if a great project comes along.
Now what would be the high profile clubs looking to hire Pep-
Chelsea- He has already rejected them
Man City- Looks like he'll go the Alexis Sanchez route here
Inter Milan- I believe he might consider, again depends if he gets a good transfer kitty as he likes young players with potential to mold them and clearly looking at the Inter squad clearly he would need a squad overhaul here. Depends on what Moratti *promises.
Man Utd- Looks like SAF would be staying for atleast another 2-3 years.
England- Had to bring it up for the sake of it. Would be shocking if he chose to be England manager(my personal guess-however might take over just for the Euros)
That leaves Liverpool- He has already spoken positively about us re academy, there is a youngish squad he can mold, with good owners(most of us think they are good anyway)
Let me know if I have missed out on any other team that could possibly hire Pep.
It has already been widely documented that our owners are in favor of young, 'hungry' managers. Another point to note is Pep has always signed 1yr contracts with Barca, would be interesting to see what he does with his next club. Don't think it would really work out with LFC if he is only willing to sign a 1 yr contract.
On the other hand, as for Barca interesting point that they could promote the Barca B manager (IF he is good enough that is). If he is, they are nurturing managers the way they are nurturing players which is a very,very interesting concept.
