Manuel Pellegrini claims he has been approached by Liverpool and admits that he would welcome a chance to replace Roy Hodgson.

Hodgson is hoping that Sunday's win over Blackburn Rovers can act as a springboard for an resurgence, with his position at Anfield now under serious threat just three months into the job following the club's worst start to a domestic campaign since 1953.

Pellegrini is hopeful of returning to management by the end of the year after being dismissed by Real in May and would prefer a move to the Premier League, citing the Reds' Spanish contingent as a key motivation if he did succeed Hodgson.

He said: "Yes, Liverpool contacted me.

"It is a great club with many Spanish players who I already know, and it is my intention to work in the Premier League.

"I had lots of offers, some that I like. Ideally, I would like to find a club in December."


This brought a HUGE smile on my face when I read this. PLEASE BE TRUE PLZ PLZ TY.

Sevilla, Athletic Bilbao, Villarreal and Espanyol to rebel against proposed Primera Division TV deal

Quartet unhappy at distribution of cash

Sevilla, Athletic Bilbao, Espanyol and Villarreal are leading the rebellion against the proposed percentage split of television revenue, which sees Real Madrid and Barcelona earn more than a third of the total amount.

The big two would earn 34 per cent of income, with suggested second tier clubs Atletico Madrid and Valencia collecting 11% while the remaining 55% would be split among the remaining 16 top-flight teams.

Of the €800 million (£714m) that would be earned in total from TV coverage, 9% would be reserved for teams in the Segunda Division, while an additional 1% would be used as a parachute payment for the three teams who are demoted from the Primera Division at the end of the season.

As a result, Real Madrid and Barcelona would be set to collect €130m (£116m), while Valencia and Atletico Madrid have accepted €45m (£40m) per season between them.

However, the dissenting quartet believe that there should be a third level of monies attributed to their clubs to allow them to compete, and more equally distribute the wealth throughout Spanish football.

Villarreal president Fernando Roig and Sevilla supremo Jose Maria del Nido have already expressed their dissatisfaction, with the latter claiming that the current division “cannot continue”.


i wished it was more fair for the other clubs so that they could develop more. just my two cents.

Spain dominate Ballon d'Or shortlist


Seven of the Spanish side that triumphed in South Africa are nominated for the award, including Andres Iniesta and Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.

But there was no sign for any of the England squad - last year, Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and John Terry all made the shortlist, plus Welshman Ryan Giggs.

Shoulda kept the truth inside; maybe it was better to lie.

Every week, The Guardian readers do their take on someone who's in the spotlight in the footballing world, ala Photoshop or MS Paint. Needless to say, this week, it was a certain Shrek-lookalike and his will he/won't he saga. Some AMAZE lulz ensue: -

Rofl'ing into 2011 here ;) Seriously though. He doesn't exactly appease himself to fans of opposition teams, and now he's only gone and alienated the only people who defended him. Good luck with that.

Miguel García must leave football

Miguel García, Salamanca player, had a heart attack during the game his team was playing against Betis. His teammates watched between tears as he fell to the ground unconscious, and as the doctors practiced CPR to him in the middle of the pitch.

The doctors have now informed him that he won't be able to play football again, news that he took with "pain, but resignation".

The chardiologists confirmed that he's now out of danger but that he must stop playing.


This is a sad thing to hear :( but I think it's the best for him. It wouldn't do any good if he continued playing under the risk of this happening again.

New era beckons for Ángel, Red Bulls

NEW YORK — A subtle irony greeted fans as they approached Red Bull Arena for New York's final game of the 2010 regular season.

Hanging on the facade of a disused warehouse adjoining the stadium parking lot is a giant billboard that features an action shot of Juan Pablo Ángel. Above the 100-foot-tall striker are the words,"Witness a new era."

The club hung the banner at the beginning of the 2010 season to remind fans that this was not the old Giants Stadium-dwelling MetroStars of old. This was, well, a new era for the franchise. And what better way to announce its rebirth than with a Godzilla-like portrait of the team's biggest star.

However, the Ángel era is essentially over. Last week, in a 2-0 defeat of longtime foes New England, Ángel played his final regular-season game as a Red Bull. Sure, the Colombian striker will most certainly suit up in New York colors for the postseason. But as for next year, Ángel will not return as a Red Bulls player.

In his own words, that's "a fact."

World Cup 2018 race hottin up


England's 2018 World Cup bid demands apology from rivals Russia

England's 2018 bid team have made a formal complaint to Fifa following derogatory comments by their main rival Russia about London. Officials have demanded a public apology after Alexei Sorokin, the Russian bid leader, last week highlighted London's "high crime rate" and youth alcohol problems.

England 2018 believe his claims contravene Fifa's bidding rules prohibiting comments about rival World Cup bidders and the governing body will write to Sorokin seeking an explanation.
