Liverpool fans, come in, make yourself at home.

Presumably you’ve landed on this tiny space of internet with the expectation of finding a round-up on your beloved club. If that’s the case then you’ve come to exactly the right place.

Below we’ve detailed the biggest stories of the day, including a bit of fluff to help you digest. Read on, watch the video above and leave thoughts and opinions in the box provided when possible.

Sakho hits out

It may be a time for dejected reflection from all those associated with Liverpool, given that Brendan Rodgers is no longer manager, but one man who has differed from most of his teammates is French centre-back Mamadou Sakho.

The Reds defender was frozen out at the beginning of the season and described himself as being like a caged lion who had not been fed for a while.

"Let's say that during the short period when I was not playing, I was like a little caged lion who had not been fed for a while. And when you open the door, he charges," he said.

Since signing a new deal he’s been an ever-present fixture for Liverpool, but one can’t shake the feeling his comments are a thinly-veiled dig at Brendan Rodgers.

Can on Klopp

In other news, Emre Can has offered an insight into who he wants to become the next Anfield manager, describing Jurgen Klopp as a great coach.

The youngster said Klopp could work with any team in the world - we’ve got to admit there’s a strong chance that theory is going to be put to the test with Liverpool. In any case, the vacant role will probably be sorted in the coming weeks.

Klopp waiting for Bayern?

Lastly, we turn to perhaps the only report in the world at this time suggesting Klopp won’t be running for the position Rodgers has just vacated.

Spanish journalist Guillem Balague has now claimed he thinks Klopp is waiting for the Bayern Munich job to become available.

At the moment, Pep Guardiola rules the roost at the Allianz Arena, but Klopp, no stranger to the Bundesliga, apparently wants to succeed him.
