Jörg Schmadtke has already said his goodbyes, with Liverpool’s sporting director leaving following the conclusion of the January transfer window.

Xabi Alonso looks to be the early frontrunner, with his Bayer Leverkusen side still leading the way in the Bundesliga.

With such a big decision on the horizon, Fenway Sports Group has turned to a familiar face to help with the search. Meanwhile, another of the early favorites has lifted the lid on his contract talks at his current club. In different websites verdict on the latest speculation in the search for a new manager.
