Ex-Holland coach Van Marwijk: I was all set to become Liverpool manager...

Former Holland coach Bert van Marwijk has revealed he came close to landing the Liverpool job.

Van Marwijk says he was wanted at Anfield when Damien Comolli was Liverpool football director and was all set to sign.

He recalled to Algemeen Dagblad: "Exactly at that time, technical director Damien Comolli was dismissed, therefore it all it fell through.

"I thought it was a real shame, because I had a good feeling about it."
