Carlo Ancelotti's former assistant Paul Clement thinks the former Chelsea boss would be a good fit at Liverpool

Carlo Ancelotti's former assistant Paul Clement is confident his old boss still has "a lot to offer" and could be a good fit for Liverpool.

Clement was speaking to Sky Sports in the wake of Liverpool's decision to sack Brendan Rodgers following a 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby on Super Sunday.

And Clement, who coached under Ancelotti at Chelsea, Paris Saint-German and Real Madrid, believes the Italian may soon be keen to get back into management at the top level.

"He had a great career as a player, and a sterling career as a manager - in terms of the clubs he's managed," said Clement.

"The three wins in the Champions League - [managing] in England, France and Italy as well.

"He's got all the credibility, he's a fantastic man-manager.

"He's enjoying a little bit of rest at the moment but he's got a lot to offer."

Ancelotti has been out of work since he left Real Madrid earlier this year, and Clement, who now manages Derby County in the Championship, says Liverpool could be an attractive destination for the former Chelsea boss.

"He's going to want to be going to a big club, a club where he's got a chance of being successful and winning.

"And there's certainly one available now."
