Liverpool job would be something special, says Sami Hyypia
Former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia admits he would love to manage the Reds at some point in his coaching career
Sami Hyypia admits he would love to seal a return to Liverpool and manage the Reds at some point in his managerial career.
The Finn is currently in charge of second-placed Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, who take on Manchester United in the Champions League at BayArena on Wednesday night.
Hyypia won the FA Cup and League Cup twice during a 10-year spell at Anfield following a £2.6m move from Willem II in 1999, as well as helping the Reds lift their fifth European crown in 2005.
And the 40-year-old has his heart set on taking charge of Liverpool and his country Finland in the future.
Hyppia told Sky Sports: “Many people have asked me – ‘Where would I want to manage?’
There are two special places for me; I was at Liverpool for 10 years so that would be great.
“That doesn’t mean it’s a target – but it would be something special.
“And I come from Finland – and the Finnish national coach is the biggest job there. It’s also not a target but it would be great.”
