Liverpool eye Jurgen Klopp after Brendan Rodgers' sacking

Published 1 Comments

Brendan Rodgers has become the second manager to leave his post this season, just days after Dick Advocaat was relinquished from his position coaching relegation candidate's Sunderland.

Rodgers' dismissal came less than 12 hours after his sides' 1-1 draw at Goodison Park against bitter rivals Everton. The official statement was posted on the club website Sunday evening detailing that the two parties had 'parted company'.

The Reds have seemingly picked the smartest time to look for a new manager as there will be minimal disruption to the squad preparation due to the upcoming international break and the club says: 'The search for a new manager is underway and we hope to make an appointment in a decisive and timely manner.'

Klopp close to signing?

According to BBC Sport, Liverpool has already found Rodgers' replacement in former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp. The German mastermind who led Dortmund to the Champions League final in 2013 has been on the radar of many of the big clubs in Europe.

It is unsure whether Liverpool will have the same pulling power as other teams, and with Chelsea barely treading water, many people are questioning how long Jose Mourinho will stick it out. It could be prudent for Klopp to play his cards close to his chest.

Other options for the Kopites include former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti and current Ajax boss Frank de Boer, who has expressed on numerous occasions his interest at managing in the Premier League.

Whichever direction the Liverpool owners see the club heading, it seems likely that it will be with a big name manager at the helm with the aim of challenging for the league title and giving the fans some silverware to celebrate.
