Steve McManaman has told Liverpool the days of them being able to hand-pick their next manager were "long gone".

Former Anfield hero McManaman suggested anyone who thought the likes of Pep Guardiola or Jose Mourinho would be interested in replacing the sacked Kenny Dalglish was not "living in the real world".

Some say Liverpool's status as one of the most successful clubs in European history should allow them to get almost anyone. But McManaman said: "That's not the case any more. You can't identify Pep Guardiola and go and get him, you can't identify Jose Mourinho and go and get him. Those days of that type of appointment have long gone."
