Deschamps: Liverpool wanted me to replace Benitez

Olympique Marseille boss Didier Deschamps has revealed Liverpool approached him about replacing Rafael Benitez at Anfield in July.

Deschamps took over at Marseille in 2009 and guided the club to their first Ligue 1 title for 18 years as was interviewed by Liverpool before they eventually appointed Fulham's Roy Hodgson.

The former France captain, whose side face his old team Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday night, made the admission at the pre-match press conference on the eve of the game.

"I was very proud a club like Liverpool were interested in me,'' Deschamps said. "But the timing was not good. I was engaged with Marseille, the players and the fans, and I could not leave them two days before the restart for pre-season. I was extremely pleased and happy but I decided to stay and continue my adventure with Marseille.''

Deschamps insists the Reds' interest was firm. "We had a long discussion,'' he said.

The Frenchman guided AS Monaco to the 2004 Champions League final and won Serie B with Juventus in 2007 after their demotion following the calciopoli scandal.
