The Football Association is in talks with former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers to create a new sports commentator role, according to reports.
A source told SportMag.com that Rodgers has “initiated” talks with the club’s official media relations team, and that he has not ruled out an offer to take on the job.
However, sources close to the matter told Sportmag.com: “Rodgers has not made an offer, but he is very much interested.
He is looking to make an impact with Liverpool, and his previous experience with sports journalism has made him an ideal candidate.”
A source close to Rodgers told Sport mag.com, “He is a player, he has experience, he’s very, very keen.
He wants to get to the top.
He has a good personality.
We will see.”
Rodgers, who led Liverpool to Champions League glory in 2008 and 2009, took over from Jurgen Klopp after the former Manchester United manager departed in June, but is now leading the Reds to third place in the Premier League.
The Liverpool boss, who was fired by Liverpool in January after the club failed to win any of their first seven games of the season, has a reputation for being controversial and is a regular commentator for the club on the big stage.
Rodgers will be tasked with helping to create the coverage for the Premier Leagues club, and he is believed to be keen to bring in a new commentator to work alongside him.
He will be able to “advance the sport in the same way as the coaches he has worked with at other clubs”, the source said.
“The Liverpool players want him to do this, the club is keen on him and he will help them.
He will work closely with the players.
It will be a great job for him.”
