With Brendan Rodgers now searching for a new assistant coach at Liverpool, Zenden, who made around 70 appearances for the club as a player, has been named as a possible candidate and he is open to the role.

After being asked by De Telegraaf about the job at Liverpool, Zenden said, “I keep all my options open for the new season. I have always enjoyed myself in the Premier League.”

The 38-year-old has a good relationship with soon to be Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson after working together at Sunderland, and this may give him the edge over other candidate’s which reportedly include fellow Dutchman Rene Meeulensteen.
