Former Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti was approached by Liverpool before they hired Jurgen Klopp, according to Harry Redknapp.
The Merseyside club denied reports in September that they had sounded out Ancelotti to replace Brendan Rodgers in the Reds dugout, but Redknapp claims that contact was in fact made.
"I have heard from good sources that he [Ancelotti] was offered the Liverpool job," Redknapp said, according to TalkSport.
"I don't think [he wanted it]. They spoke to him at some stage."
