Liverpool co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett sounded out Jurgen Klinsmann about becoming the club´s next manager, according to a report.

Hicks claims the talks would not have resulted in the immediate dismissal of the man who led the team to Champions League glory but that Klinsmann was "an insurance policy".

Klinsmann is no longer an option, however, as he has agreed to take charge of Bayern Munich, but Hicks told the Liverpool Echo: "We attempted to negotiate an option as an insurance policy to have him (Klinsmann) become manager if Rafael left for Real Madrid or other clubs that were rumoured in the press. Or in case our communication spiralled out of control for some reason."
