Galatasaray are ‘in talks’ with the former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers as the Istanbul based clubs looks to replace the recently departed Hamza Hamzaoglu.

According to the Belfast Telegraph Rodgers is being lined up to take over the vacant manager’s position at Galatasaray.

Rodgers was fired by Liverpool in October following a disappointing start to the season and was replaced by Jurgen Klopp.

Galatasaray parted company with Hamza Hamzaoglu following a dispute with the clubs President Dursun Ozbek.

The former Akhisar manager signed a one-year deal worth $500,000 making him one of the lowest paid members in the squad and one of the lowest paid managers in the league but he still managed to win the league and Turkish Cup.

Galatasaray won the double for the sixth time in club history under Hamzaoğlu and earned the right to become the first Turkish club to wear the fourth star.
