SPORTS: GERARD HOULLIER DEAD: Former Liverpool Manager Dies Aged 73

Former Liverpool and Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier has passed away at the age of 73.

Reports in France on Monday morning confirmed the former Lyon manager had died just days after he underwent a heart operation. The Frenchman rose to prominence in the Premier League when he took charge of Liverpool in 1998 and he stayed at Anfield for six years, winning five trophies in a trophy-laden stint.

Houllier suffered from bad health during his time on Merseyside, with his assistant Phil Thompson having to take charge of the side for half a season in 2001 after the Frenchman was diagnosed with a heart condition. Houllier spent six years at Liverpool. The Frenchman’s finest campaign came in 2001.
