This would presumably rule Louis Van Gaal out of the running as Liverpool Director of Football, should the Dutchman decide to take it.
Fair enough, any new manager would want full control over the signings in and out of Anfield in order to make his imprint on the club.
It does appear now to be a dilema for FSG having gone down the road of attempting to appoint a new Director of Football in Luis Van Haal,
will they accede to Martinez' demands or will they appoint the Dutchman regardless.
We await developments with strong interest.
