Jurgen Klopp stays silent over Liverpool rumours

Liverpool fans will be forgiven for thinking Jurgen Klopp has already taken over at Anfield, such is the intensity of the speculation surrounding the unemployed German manager.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Brendan Rodgers after the Northern Irishman was dismissed from his post on Sunday evening.

However, despite the ongoing reports, there has yet to be any official word from either Klopp or Liverpool regarding their proposed connection; until now, at least.

Klopp was surrounded by German reporters early on Tuesday and was asked whether there was any truth in his apparent Premier League job offer. He refused to rule out the possibility but gave very little away in the process.

"There's nothing to say," he told Bild when asked about the vacant Anfield post. "Neither a definite yes nor a definite no. I'm going home now."

No rush

While it seems Liverpool have the shortest of shortlists, there is still no rush to hire a new manager. Indeed, the international break allows them to discuss a contract with Klopp properly and to make absolutely sure they have the best man for the job.

Also, Liverpool are the only notable club in the world looking for a new manager, meaning they should have a free run at the 48-year-old.


Klopp as well does not seem to have suffered from a damaged reputation from his relegation battle with Borussia Dortmund last season. In fact, the German has even been linked with Bayern Munich should Pep Guardiola leave.
