Jurgen Klopp cut to favourite for Liverpool job

Published Add your comment

Outgoing Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has been cut to odds of 6/1 by Ladbrokes to take the Liverpool job, should Brendan Rodgers be axed from the club this summer. 

Fabian Delph's Wembley winner for Aston Villa has put a huge thorn in Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool side. It means that it is another trophy-less season for the Reds, and it will be the third season in a row that the Northern Irishman has failed to deliver silverware. 

That is somewhat of a record on Merseyside - Rodgers becomes the first Liverpool manager since the 1950s to fail to deliver some sort of silverware in his first three years at the club.

England international Delph struck to give Villa a 2-1 Wembley win, and the goal looks to have reinstated the bookies' interest that a certain Borussia Dortmund manager could take over at the Anfield helm this summer.

Dortmund departure

Jurgen Klopp endured something of a torrid season this year with Borussia Dortmund, which led to the announcement that he will leave the club at the end of the season. 

This means Klopp will be without a club at the end of the season, prompting the increased odds on a potential move to Merseyside.

The charismatic German had also been linked with a move to Manchester City, but after a flurry of activity Ladbrokes have installed Klopp as 6/1 to be appointed Liverpool coach this summer. 

But if you look beyond this season, former Mainz coach Klopp has done an amazing job of turning Borussia Dortmund from Bundesliga lightweights into Champions League giants.

Renown for his colourful personality on the sidelines, Klopp, a two-time Bundesliga winner, would be a decorated appointment on the Anfield touchline. 

Trophy-less season 

Liverpool currently sit in fifth in the Premier League and if they remain there, they will not qualify for next season's Champions League.

This combined with a lack of silverware in the past three seasons could prove to be the final straw for Liverpool's Stateside owners, paving the way for Klopp's potential summer appointment.
