Following the sack by Liverpool of Brendan Rodgers, former Borrusia Dortmund boss Jorgen Klopp has been tipped as the favourite to man the managerial job at Anfield, as per Paul Joyce of the Daily Express.
The sack of the Irish man came as a surprise last night – his sack was announced minutes after their thrilling draw with Everton. Rodger was the second longest serving manager in the Premier League after the Gunners Arsene Wenger.
According to the reports, Liverpool have already contacted Jorgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti but it appears that the former is the icing of the cake for majority of the “powers that be” at Anfield.
Klopp led Borrussia Dortmund to the Bundesliga title twice and helped the German outfit come second runner-up in the Champions League of 2012-13 season. Even before the sack of Rodgers, there has been rumour of Klopp taking the managerial role at Anfield following his availability.
For the past two seasons, Liverpool have had the influx of players under Brendan Rodger with no trophy to show for it. Rodgers has spent over £180 million between last season and this for 16 players.
Liverpool are among the top spenders in the Premier League but their start to this season has not in any way reflected the amount they have spent in the transfer market. Hence, the timely sack of Rodgers.
