Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler was not surprised by Thursday’s reports which claimed that Jurgen Klopp was prepared to cut short his sabbatical in order to take the “right job” in the Premier League.
Sky Sports revealed the news about Klopp via their Twitter account on Thursday lunchtime, but Fowler refused to get carried away with the report, insisting that almost every single out-of-work coach would do the same thing.
“Top story on @SkySports,” Fowler tweeted, “Just a little tip for you 99% of managers are interested in working in prem and all would cut short sabbatical.”

Rumours are rife that Liverpool want Klopp to become their next manager, with Brendan Rodgers under severe pressure at Anfield following an underwhelming start to the 2015-16 campaign.
talkSPORT understand that Rodgers will be replaced, although they claim the former Borussia Dortmund head coach is not in contention to succeed the Northern Irish manager.

It’s understood that Liverpool have made contact with Carlo Ancelotti - despite the Merseyside outfit’s denial - but it’s unclear whether the ex-Real Madrid manager would be interested in taking the job at Anfield.
After scraping past League Two side Carlisle United in the Capital One Cup third round this week, defeat against Aston Villa this weekend could spell the end for Rodgers at Liverpool.

Liverpool fans would appear to be satisfied if either Klopp or Ancelotti replaced the beleaguered Rodgers, who now requires a miracle to save his job at Anfield.
