Gerard Houllier, Dies Aged 73


Former Liverpool and France manager Gerard Houllier has died, according to French media.

The 73-year-old, who also managed Aston Villa, Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon) and Paris St Germain (PSG), passed away after having a heart operation in Paris, L'Equipe said.

Liverpool said in a statement on Monday: "The Frenchman was in charge of the Reds for six seasons, leading his team to an historic and unforgettable treble of League Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Cup in 2000-01 and returning the club to the Champions League.

Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher said on Twitter he had contact with Houllier, whom he "loved to bits", last month and was "devastated" at the passing of a man who changed his game and the club.
