FSG’s decision means that his redemption will not come at Anfield.

The dramatic development may have paved the way for Roberto Martinez to take
charge at Anfield, although the Wigan Athletic manager has yet to meet

Swansea City’s Brendan Rodgers still remains in contention despite his initial
reluctance to discuss the job when he was approached last week.

Liverpool’s owners are planning to hold talks with experienced Dutchman Louis
van Gaal about a possible role for him at Anfield; however, this would
probably not be the manager’s job, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Although Van Gaal, 60, has expressed his desire to fill the vacancy at
Anfield, he has not managed a club since he left Bayern Munich in April 2011
and it appears more likely that FSG would want him as sporting director
alongside a younger boss in a new structure to be unveiled at Anfield.
