Liverpool need Jurgen Klopp more than Carlo Ancelotti

Liverpool FC are now looking for the perfect manager to take over a club that haven't won a league title for over 25 years.

If reports are to be believed, both Jurgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti have both been contacted regarding the vacant position, but for me, there is only one true contender and that is Klopp.

When Rodgers was appointed, it showed a real intention to give an up and coming young manager the chance to carve out a long-term career at the club - something not seen since the era of Shankly and Paisley.

It was clear that Liverpool wanted to replicate their bitter rivals, Manchester United, in the Premier League and they knew they need a long-term strategy.

This was a bold but necessary move and it almost resulted in the unthinkable happening within two seasons but is wasn't to be.

Liverpool need to stay committed to a long-term strategy and Carlo Ancelotti is not going to be that type of manager. Jurgen Klopp is.

Liverpool also have to put emphasis on re-connecting with their supporters by playing the game with passion and nobody exudes passion as much as Jurgen Klopp.

Finally, Liverpool will need defensive players, including midfield and Klopp will be able to bring in the right players. And what about the attack? Liverpool would love to sign a top six-yard style striker who can terrorise defenders both in England and in Europe.

It will serve little purpose to appoint a manager who is at the end of their career - if Liverpool, as I suspect, can mount a Utd style assault on the Premier League and repeat their amazing feats in the old First Division (as well as Europe) they are going to need to appoint a manager who is going to be around for at least five seasons - possibly more.

Anything else will prove fruitless.
