In a Press Conference recently, AVB argued that Liverpool would probably be interested in Mourinho if he was to return to the Premier League, and claimed that Kenny Dalglish should also be feeling the pressure, along with several other Managers. He said:
"A manager of Jose's dimension and the number one in the world will always be an attractive target for whatever club."
"Because he's a manager that makes himself available to return to his beloved England will for sure capture the interests of City, United and Chelsea and Tottenham and Liverpool and Arsenal"
"So, in that sense, we are all under pressure, from [Roberto] Mancini to [Sir Alex] Ferguson to me to [Kenny] Dalglish to Harry Redknapp and so on."
When it comes to Liverpool specifically, I think AVB is right; irrespective of Dalglish's achievements in the past, if Mourinho was available, the club's owners - who have no real emotional attachment to Dalglish or Liverpool's history - would probably take a serious look at him.
From FSG's perspective, they want success for Liverpool, and Mourinho guarantees success.
Anything is possible in football, and it's conceivable that we could see the ironic situation of Rafa Benitez at Chelsea, and Mourinho at Liverpool at some point in the future (!)
