Saudis target ex-Liverpool chiefs Houllier, Parry

Former Liverpool pair Gerard Houllier and Rick Parry are being lined up for a Middle Eastern move.

The Mirror says Saudia Arabia's soccer chiefs are head-hunting former Liverpool pair Houllier and Parry to sort out their football.

The oil-rich government plan to recruit former Kop chief Houllier as their new director of football to oversee the national team and their top sides.

Houllier is in charge of France's football empire and could even be allowed to do both jobs - although the cash in the Middle East may tempt him to go there full-time.

Parry is also being chased to run the administrative side of the Saudi game. He is available after leaving Liverpool at the end of last season and has wide knowledge.
