Jurgen Klopp's experience at Dortmund makes him the perfect suitor for Liverpool

Published 1 Comments

Following the sacking of Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool find themselves in search of a manager who can take Liverpool forward; the type of manager that can take the Merseysiders back to where they seemed to be in the summer of 2014.

A club with international pedigree, the Reds face an uphill struggle, and while many are keen to take on such a challenge at Anfield, there are only two fathomable choices: Carlo Ancelotti or Jurgen Klopp. 

The former, whilst oozing experience and success, is not quite the right fit. Though possessing a CV fit to manage a club of Liverpool's stature, one can't look past the fact that recently he has stepped into jobs with squads ready to take the title.

Liverpool, unfortunately, aren't in possession of such a squad. 

Enter, Jurgen Klopp. Though harsh in the eyes of some, the sacking of Rodgers could be seen as a step forward if the charismatic German were to fill the managerial void.

The project he undertook at Borussia Dortmund a little under a decade ago was one similar to the job at Liverpool in a plethora of ways. 

The Merseyside outfit hold European pedigree, having won the Champions League in 2005; they find themselves adrift of the top sides in the league whilst possessing a young squad capable of improvement but with potential clear to see.

In addition, there is a possibility that stars will leave the club for so-called bigger clubs, leaving holes in the side. 

A decade ago, the same was true for Dortmund. 

Ten years down the line, largely down to the work of Klopp, and Dortmund - although off the pace last year - are the second best side in Germany. Klopp achieved this by using the astounding support in Dortmund to integrate a pressing style of play, centred around attacking football. 

This, in 2014, was what made Liverpool so successful and, of course, one Luis Suarez.

Unfortunately, Liverpool are at a stage where players, such as Suarez, will move on to bigger clubs at some point. Klopp, thanks to Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski, is no stranger to this.

He knows how to adapt teams so that the loss of one player doesn't result in a five-place drop down the table. This is crucial. 

Furthermore, Anfield is in need of a lift. The introduction of attacking football and a charismatic manager would do the world of good for Liverpool and the fans alike. 

The job is tailor-made for Klopp; Klopp is tailor-made for Liverpool. The choice is clear, then - isn't it?
