After more than 10 years at Anfield, culminating in the role of Sporting Director, the 42-year-old is now looking for a new challenge but looks to have turned down Chelsea.

Todd Boehly is clearly looking to make a bold change at the helm of the negotiating head of the club, as his first summer since taking over from Roman Abramovich is now underway.

It’s interesting that the proposal from the London club wasn’t attractive enough for the now former Liverpool man, as he hunts for his next adventure.

With experience also working with Tottenham Hotspur and Portsmouth, perhaps the Southampton-born informatics expert is looking for a change of scenery all together.
