The pressure really is starting to mount on Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers. After the amount of money that Rodgers has spent in his tenure - you could be forgiven for looking for more from the Reds than a team in ninth place - with only three wins in their first seven games.
After the reports that Jurgen Klopp was interested in taking over at Anfield, another high profile manager has explicitly expressed an interest in the role.
Ajax boss Frank de Boer was a candidate to replace Kenny Daglish in 2012, before Rodgers was chosen. The former Dutch international has now expressed a desire to take over the reigns after taking Ajax for four consecutive Dutch titles.
Speaking to the BBC World Service, De Boer expressed his admiration for the Premier League:
Yes, I think every year (it) comes closer of course.
I’m looking maybe for another adventure. If there is an interesting club that I think with my quality I can make that team better – if I can, than I will take that chance.
They are fantastic clubs. Liverpool and Newcastle - with supporters behind them - it is a fantastic environment to coach but this year it is important for me to do well at Ajax and then we will see.
It's unusual for a coach to name two specific clubs that he would want to manage, and heaps even more pressure on Rodgers.
