Charlie Adam has described the vacant Liverpool manager’s post as “one of the best jobs in English football” as the Reds continue their search for Kenny Dalglish’s successor.

The 61-year-old’s reign at Anfield came to an end a fortnight ago after Dalglish’s side limped to two wins in their final eight home games, resulting in a disappointing eighth-place finish.

Former Chelsea boss André Villas-Boas, Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martínez, and Swansea head coach Brendan Rodgers have all been linked with the vacant post, and Adam is expecting a world-class appointment at Anfield.

“I was back working at Liverpool last week,” he told the Mail on Sunday. “I’ll be all geared up and trying to impress the new manager.

“Whoever comes in will be a top manager who is used to working with top players. It’s one of the best jobs in English football so it will be very attractive to a lot of people. We’re one of the best clubs in the world and I feel extremely fortunate to be at Liverpool.”

The 26-year-old was injured during Liverpool’s 3-2 defeat at Queens Park Rangers in March and was subsequently ruled out for the rest of the season.

And the Scotland international admits he is desperate to return to full fitness in time to impress the club’s new manager.

“The most important thing is just getting back on the pitch and playing again,” added Adam.

“I missed eight weeks toward the end of the season and the Cup final. I couldn’t help the lads when they needed it. So I need to be fully fit to show the new man what I can do.”
