English Premier League giants Liverpool, reportedly gave ‘serious consideration’ in appointing Eddie Howe as a successor to former boss Brendan Rodgers, before Jurgen Klopp was given the job.
According to the Athletic, Howe made a three-man shortlist including Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti in the Premier League Champions search for a successor to Brendan Rodgers who had just been sacked by the club.
That season, the English manager had just impressively led Bournemouth to promotion from the Championship to the Premier League with his journey at the Cherries starting in League 2.
This just goes to show, how impressive Howe’s stock is as a manager and could be seen as a brilliant appointment by the club in the coming weeks.
That deal seems to be edging closer with the 43-year old, holding talks with majority shareholder Dermot Desmond and incoming CEO Dominic McKay.
Many candidates have been named in the last few months as the possible successor to Neil Lennon as permanent boss. At this stage, it seems that man is going to be Howe.
