Liverpool reportedly rule out an approach to former England boss Fabio Capello for the vacant managerial position at the club.

Liverpool are reportedly not considering former England manager Fabio Capello for the club's managerial vacancy, despite reports linking the Italian to the position.

The 65-year-old has been among a host of names being touted as the potential successor to Kenny Dalglish, who was sacked last week following a dismal season in the Premier League.

It is believed that Capello's camp have alerted Liverpool's American owners to the Italian's interest in the position. However, the Merseyside outfit are not considering an approach to the former Real Madrid boss, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is believed to be a favourite for the vacancy, while ex-Chelsea coach Andre Villas-Boas is also thought to be in the running.
