After sacking Brendan Rogers this weekend, Liverpool has set their sights on hiring German personality Jurgen Klopp as a possible replacement. Klopp has been on a self imposed sabbatical leave since leaving Borrusia Dortmund at the end of last season. Jurgen Klopp spent 7 years in all at Dortmund which saw him win plenty silverwares and even carried the team to the Champions league finals. He achieved a lot at Dortmund and was loved by his players and the fans at large.
Liverpool on the other hand parted ways with Brendan Rogers after their 1-1 draw with Everton. It’s been a long time coming for Rodgers as he had been hanging on the ropes since the beginning of the season. After spending so much to bring in players during the last transfer market, there seemed to be no progress with the team. During his three years spell at Liverpool, Rodgers brought in a total of 31 Players and all he has to show for it is one silver ware, not a major one at that.
Jurgen Klopp has been rumored as the possible replacement for Pep Guardiola after his contract with Bayern Munich runs this January but the possibilities of a U-turn by the Spaniard has made Kloop consider the offer from Liverpool. Liverpool also has former AC Milan and Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelloti as an option but Kloop remains their first choice. They would want to seal the deal for Klopp on time as Chelsea’s coach Jose Mourinho seems to be running out of time to get the club back to winning ways. And if so happens that Mourinho is sacked, Chelsea would turn their sights to Klopp or Ancelloti which would make the whole process more difficult for them.
