first_imgSpanish football expert Graham Hunter has told talkSPORT that Liverpool would be making a wise choice in bringing Pako Ayestaran back to the club.Ayestaran, who was assistant to Rafa Benitez during his time in charge at Anfield, is being linked with a return to the role under Brendan Rodgers after the departure of his long-serving number two Colin Pascoe.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Hunter said of the Spaniard: “He is a friend of mine and he is somebody I think very highly of in terms of his intensity of work, in terms of what he is able to do in mixing coaching, tactics, and fitness, which was his base specialism for elite professional football coaching.“He is a brilliant guy tactically and he understands games when he view them, whether it is changing games or viewing games in advance.
