Liverpool fan applies for manager job; Ian Ayre writes brilliant response

Published Add your comment

A Liverpool fan has uploaded a hilarious letter to Facebook that he received from club chief executive Ian Ayre after he applied to replace Brendan Rodgers as manager.

Rodgers was handed his marching orders last week and has since been replaced by former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp, who was announced as Reds' boss.

Liverpool fan Adam Kneale had tried to beat the German to the punch however, and given his experience includes guiding Portsmouth from League 2 to Premier League and Champions League winners in just four years.

Given that Liverpool are already in English football's top tier, Kneale would have been confident of landing the job and taking even less time to guide the club back to the top of English and European football. The only catch is that his impressive achievement was on FIFA 15.

Sadly that was a major problem for Ayre, who showed a decent sense of humour to write back to Kneale informing him that he wouldn't be handed the reigns at Anfield.

The Liverpool chief wrote: "Unfortunately, we are unable to process your interest at this time as we are looking for someone with more experience in the professional game.

"In relation to the experience that you have provided; taking Portsmouth Football Club from the 2nd Division and going on to winning the Premier League and Champions League in four seasons on FIFA 15, it is not the required standard of experience that we are looking for at this time."


Liverpool will feel confident that they have the right man for the job in Klopp, who guided Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles and a Champions League final, before stepping down at the end of last season.

His first game in charge will come against Tottenham at White Hart Lane on October 17.

Do you think Klopp can guide Liverpool back into the top four this season?
