Sources have told ESPN that former Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti is unlikely to take up Liverpool job as manager, following the sacking of Brendan Rodgers.
The managing committee at Liverpool is hoping to bring in a new coach before their meeting against Tottenham Hotspur on October 17th after the international break.
The Italian is among the few favourite choices to be appointed as manager for the Reds, alongside former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool have expressed their wishes to bring in Ancelotti to take charge at Liverpool, who is currently on a year-long sabbatical after leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season.
However, sources have revealed that Liverpool will be struggling to convince Ancelotti to take up the vacant position.
It has been reported, that though Ancelotti has not completely ruled out the possibility of managing Liverpool, he would prefer to take over a club playing in the Champions League.
