Former Premier League manager Harry Redknapp believes Jurgen Klopp should take charge of Sunderland, not Liverpool.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager is the favourite to replace Brendan Rodgers at Anfield and Redknapp believes he would be able to take the club back into the Champions League.

However, the former Tottenham Hotspur boss believes it would be a more telling challenge for the 48-year-old if he were to take over in the north-east following the departure of Dick Advocaat.

In a video posted on his official Twitter account, via Kikka, he said: "Klopp will go in there (Liverpool) and probably finish fourth, they might finish fifth.

"Put him in at Sunderland now and see if he can do the job there. It would be a different story."

Well, let's face it, Klopp is never going to take the job at the Stadium of Light, but it would be a huge test of his credentials as a coach.

The Liverpool job will not be easy for the German manager, and taking the club back to the Champions League will be a difficult task.

Klopp is widely expected to be in charge at Anfield by the end of the international break and his first game could be a trip to fellow European hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur.

The Reds are currently tenth in the Premier League table, three points adrift of the top four, but that was not good enough to keep Rodgers at the helm.

A tough run of fixtures awaits the new Liverpool boss, with trips to Chelsea and Manchester City to come before the end of November.

But it was never going to be easy and the run-up to Christmas could make or break their season.
