Martinez emerges as front-runner for Liverpool job as talks planned

In a move that could see more clarity on the Fenway Sports Groups plans for post-Dalglish Liverpool, Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is set for talks in Boston on Thursday according to the Daily Mail.

Wigan gave Martinez permission to discuss the vacant Liverpool job last week however it is believed the talks scheduled for Thursday will be the first between the clubs owner John Henry and the Spaniard, as they look set to create a new path in Liverpool’s future with a young manager.

The Merseyside club have been knocked back in their attempts to speak to several managers though the Daily Mail reports that Martinez is John Henry’s preferred choice.
