Andre Villas-Boas is out of the running to become next Liverpool manager, according to reports.


The Liverpool Echo claim the former Chelsea manager has not been invited for a formal interview after initial talks with Anfield owners Fenway Sports Group [FSG].


Villas-Boas has been looking for a job since being relieved of his Stamford Bridge post by Roman Abramovich and his agent had claimed the 34-year-old was keen to take on a “project” at his next club.


The report also says that Villas-Boas was not on the initial list of candidates drawn up by FSG, but they arranged talks after he made his interest in the Liverpool job known to them.


This means that Wigan manager Roberto Martinez’s chances of getting the job have improved significantly, but the report states that Louis van Gaal is still in the running to take over as manager and not sporting director, as numerous reports claimed last week.


Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers is also still a target, despite turning down the opportunity of preliminary talks with the Reds’ management, and could be made to reconsider if he was on the shortlist of serious candidates.
