Jurgen Klopp demands scrapping of transfer committee to take Liverpool job

Published 1 Comments

Former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp would only take the Liverpool job if an end was put to the club's transfer committee, reports the Daily Mail.

The eccentric German has been linked with a move to Merseyside in recent weeks amidst doubt over Brendan Rodgers' future, with Carlo Ancelotti also in the frame.

Klopp, though, insists that Liverpool would have to meet a few conditions should he decide to take the reigns.

The scrapping of the club's transfer committee makes sense, of course. For too long now, Liverpool have been selling their prized assets and replacing them with mediocre buys - Luis Suarez's departure a prime example of this, with Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli brought in his place.

To go more in depth, the scrap of this transfer committee would allow Klopp to take full control of all transfer activity.

Rather than Fenway Sports Group dictating Liverpool targets, Klopp would be solely responsible for the acquisition of players - a step in the right direction given both his success as a manager and Liverpool's woeful track record.

Furthermore, the German has also stated that he would only take the job if he was the prime candidate for the role, rather than just on of many targets.

An audacious demand albeit, but with Klopp one of the most sought-after managers in Europe and Liverpool in need of a shake-up, the 48-year-old could likely demand anything.

They're demands that John W. Henry and Fenway must agree to, or face losing out on a target that could undoubtedly steer them back into the mix of Premier League title contenders.
