Former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas feels he has no chance of landing the Liverpool job.

The Daily Star Sunday says the Portuguese coach, sacked by Chelsea in March, held talks with the Reds earlier this month about replacing sacked Kenny Dalglish in the Anfield dugout.

A source close to the ex-Porto boss said: "Andre doesn't think he's got a chance of being offered the Liverpool job any more. That's what he is saying to friends.

"He really wanted it - so he's very disappointed. But he will now look to find another club."
