Klopp left Signal Iduna Park after last season having a memorable spell at the club and is currently on sabbatical.

Brendan Rodgers was under huge pressure at the end of the last season finishing sixth in the table after spending a lot of money but to everyone’s surprise, he kept the job. 

Rodgers’ first team coach Mike Marsh and assistant manager Colin Pascoe got sacked for the poor performance by the team but Rodgers was backed by the owners Fenway Sports Group but the display of the team this season has not improved.

Rodgers’ tactics and playing players out of position has been criticized by football experts and fans while latter is desperate to see Rodgers getting sacked. They even opened a page to raise money to compensate Rodgers to be sacked.

The person whom fans want to be replacing Rodgers at Anfield is none other than Jurgen Klopp and according to German daily Bild, Klopp would be willing to consider the Liverpool job if the Reds choose to sack Rodgers, something which will pile further pressure on the former Watford boss.

Recently Klopp admitted that he is open to taking over at a club that require help and insisted he was not waiting for a call from one of the game’s elite.

“I am really very relaxed, but only because I know that in time I will be back coaching a team”, Klopp explained.

“It doesn’t have to be an absolute top club somewhere in the world, there are a lot of other good projects which are exciting and need help.”

Liverpool is next in action at the weekend when they host a newly promoted Norwich City at Anfield, a team they have put 21 goals past in their last four meetings.

Bookmakers are also making Klopp favourite for replacing Rodgers and the Liverpool fans will be happy with the news.
