Gerard Houllier has admitted that his football management days are over.
The former Liverpool boss was forced to stand down at Aston Villa in April after suffering a recurrence of his heart problems and has decided that it wouldn't be in his best interests to return to the game.
"I've got to admit the fact that, probably, I won't go back into management," he said.
"I'm practically 85 per cent fit. I'm still getting there. I need maybe a couple of months.
"Obviously, the profession that I used to have was not the best to keep in good health because of what I have."
