Liverpool sacked manager Brendan Rodgers on Sunday just eight games in to the Premier League season.
The team are languishing in 10th place in the table.
The announcement came just three hours after the team drew 1-1 in the Merseyside derby with rivals Everton, leaving them with only three wins from their first eight games.
In a statement the club said it had been a difficult decision and that the search for a new manager is underway.
Rodgers succeeded Liverpool icon Kenny Dalglish as manager in 2012.
