Barcelona legend Cruyff linked with Liverpool position after Comolli exit

Johan Cruyff could be in line to take a role at Liverpool after the Premier League club this week dispensed with the services of director of football Damien Comolli, the BBC has reported. The broadcaster adds that the former Barcelona Coach is one of a number of names being considered to work alongside manager Kenny Dalglish.

Cruyff currently holds a position with Mexican side Chivas and was formerly on the board of Ajax but stepped down after a lengthy legal battle over the direction of the club. Cruyff is also the manager of the Catalan select side, a representative team made up of solely Catalan-born players who take part in occasional friendly matches.

The 64-year-old also managed Ajax for three years between 1985 and 1988 before moving to Barcelona, where he remained until 1996, winning the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup with the Dutch side and four La Liga titles, the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and the 1991 European Cup with Barcelona.
