Back in November, there was a bit of news in France doing the rounds that Christophe Galtier, currently the manager at Lille, wanted to, one day, lead Liverpool out of the tunnel at Anfield.
The news came from a close friend of his, Régis Brouard, told L’Equipe du Soir that the Frenchman had ‘openly admitted’ his dream of managing the Reds to him.
Well, that has now been dispelled entirely by Galtier himself, who, relayed by Homme du Match, told Canal+ the truth.
Speaking on the 24h de Boulleau TV show, the Lille manager was asked about this so-called desire of his, to which he replied: “I know how to speak English, but I need to get better. My dream isn’t Liverpool.”
At the end of the day, no one is getting the Anfield job as long as Jürgen Klopp wants to stay on Merseyside, such has been his impact at the club since he took over.
While the Reds have hit a bit of a rough patch by their standards, most fully trust the German to turn things around in the near future.
Add to this the fact he has three years left on his deal once the season is over, and the Liverpool job will remain out of reach for any potential candidates for a while longer.
