Jurgen Klopp tells friends he will return to management

Published 1 Comments

Jurgen Klopp has told close friends that he expects to return to management in the next two weeks but refused to name which club he would be joining, reports the Telegraph.

Those friends of his, who are evidently also close friends with journalist Matt Law, should not need too many guesses as to where he may be going, however.

The German manager has been heavily linked with the newly vacant role at Liverpool with reports suggesting owners Fenway Sports Group have made an initial approach to open talks.

While it is still unclear whether Klopp is enticed by the project on offer at Anfield, it seems he is ready to return to management after leaving Borussia Dortmund at the end of last season.

Klopp was understood to have left Dortmund by mutual consent after becoming exhausted and had originally planned to take a year off. However, just a five-month break is all the 48-year-old seems to have needed.

Liverpool sacked Brendan Rodgers on Sunday night following a 1-1 draw with Everton, but it seems FSG had put plans in place for his dismissal before the Merseyside derby.

Indeed, the Sun report that Liverpool had already rented a five-bedroom house in anticipation for the arrival of a "special guest", believed to be Rodgers' replacement.

The Ancelotti option

Carlo Ancelotti is also a target for Liverpool, but there are already suggestions that the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager is unsure about taking on the task of managing the Anfield club.

The Italian was spotted in London last night after flying in for talks with Liverpool officials, but they face a tough task convincing him to succeed Rodgers.
