Louis van Gaal has cast doubt on taking the football director's job at Liverpool.
The Daily Mail says the Dutchman had emerged as the leading contender to become the Anfield club's new Sporting Director as Fenway Sports Group aim to accelerate their revamp of the club.
He said: "My fingers are itching. I'm full of fire and want to work with players.
"I get dozens of offers but I'm waiting for the best one."
