After the sacking of Brendan Rodgers, it is widely reported that former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is the next person to take the hot seat of the Northern Irishman at Anfield.
All leading British newspapers and German newspapers have confirmed that Klopp is set to make a switch to Anfield cutting off his sabbatical after leaving signal Iduna Park at the end of the last season.
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can within whom Rodgers saw a central defender, has given the biggest hint that ‘Klopp for Kop’ is happening.
The German international has nothing but praise for his compatriot and will also be pleased to have the manager from his own country.
Can is also pleased with the prospect of playing in his favoured position that is as a central midfielder.
“Jurgen Klopp is certainly a great coach,” Can told German newspaper Die Welt, reported in the Mirror.
“I think he has demonstrated in Dortmund that he can work at any team in the world.”
Klopp’s resume is very much impressive for a team like Borussia Dortmund whom he made into a force in Germany and Europe starting from scratches.
Two Bundesliga titles, a German Cup and a Champions League runner-ups medal shines in the CV of the German master tactician.
Due to his grasp of the English language though, Klopp says that England is his only viable alternative to the Bundesliga.
“I think that apart from Germany, England is the only other country where I should work,” Klopp said.
“Simply because I know a little of the language and I need the language for my work.”
BBC Sport reported that Klopp will be in charge of Anfield by this Friday as the fans are waiting for the official announcement.
But the comments from their number 23 will give them a relief that it is finally happening.
Klopp is the person fans wanted at Liverpool since the end of their dismal last season which got no better this season.
Rodgers eventually got fired and Klopp has a lot of work to do on his arrival right away.
An away fixture with a performing Spurs side at White Hart Lane will give him an early test of his endeavor.
