Tributes pour in for Gerard Houllier

Former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier has passed away after heart problems.

The 73-year-old was having an operation on his heart in Paris at the time. He had a history of heart problems and had to undergo bypass surgery while at Liverpool back in 2001.

The former French national boss was manager at Anfield from 1998 to 2004, winning six trophies in that time including the FA Cup and Uefa Cup, before going on to manage Lyon and Aston Villa.

Houllier was awarded the Légion d’honneur for his services to French football, and an honorary OBE for services to British football during his time in management.
