Football News

Liverpool fans, welcome to your daily round-up.

There isn’t much we can say for today bar the fact it’s a fairly usual Wednesday that’s sure to fade into obscurity once the clock tolls for the beginning of Thursday.

That doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it while it’s here though. What better way to do that than to settle down and read the latest gossip? Don’t worry, we’ll answer that. There is no better way.

Klopp to be announced?

The wait for Liverpool’s new manager could be over by the end of the week, with reports suggesting that Jurgen Klopp might be announced as Brendan Rodgers’ successor on Friday.

Speculation has raged since Rodgers’ departure, with Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti the two men most frequently linked with the job.

However, it’s believed now that the former has moved into pole position - no surprise given Ancelotti’s superstar reputation - and might sign on for an Anfield project within the next two days.

He worked wonders with Borussia Dortmund, although Liverpool are a different beast altogether.

Carragher v Gerrard

Meanwhile, Reds legend Jamie Carragher couldn’t resist taking a dig at former teammate Steven Gerrard yesterday, uploading a picture to his Instagram that openly mocked Gerrard’s new autobiography.

Carragher said his son was having trouble sleeping, which is why he handed him the book. Safe to say Gerrard is probably going to take it in jest.

Fowler keen on role

Lastly, Robbie Fowler - remember him? - is aiming for a coaching role if Klopp takes charge in the Anfield dugout, with the man himself having said he would ‘love’ to be in the backroom staff.

Fowler conceded he would be lying if he said he wasn’t interested in a role. It’s worth noting that he would probably have strong backing from the fans.
