According to Daily Mail, former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is ready to take Liverpool manager’s job but he has only one condition.
He has demanded the end of Liverpool’s infanmous transfer committee in order to replace Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.
He has also made it clear that he is ready to cut short his sabbatical to join Liverpool if gets the opprtunity of making the unanimous choice if he is in charge.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager had been linked with a job at Anfield in the last few weeks along with firmer Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti. Klopp is also clearly a fan favourite as the fans have urged the owners to take the German at Anfield in social media.
Former Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers did not get the freedom of dictating the transfer policy of the club during his time at Merseyside, having some unwanted players like Mario Balotelli forced upon him and denied other targets like Swansea City and Wales international Ashley Williams because they were deemed too old and not glamorous enough.
But a manager of Klopp’s stature will not welcome the idea of working under a transfer committee and with Bayern Munich also interested in him to replace Pep Guardiola next summer, he is in a pole position to negotiate terms.
He is also concerned about splits among the hierarchy some of whom are more favourable towards Rodgers than others.
The key decision-makers at Liverpool are Henry, chairman Tom Werner, Merseyside-based American director Mike Gordon and managing director Ian Ayre.
Liverpool have denied making contact with any other potential manager to succeed Rodgers and Klopp, who left Dortmund this summer, has said: “I have nothing to do with the Liverpool rumours.”
Under massive pressure from the fans who are desperate to see the Northern Irishman get sacked, Rodgers faced Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa side in a do or die game and won it but pressure has not still eased on his head.
Brendan Rodgers might have thought a win against Aston Villa will give him relief and he can keep his job but the media is not letting him take any moment of peace as rumours about Klopp is still flooding in the internet.
Klopp was brilliant with Borussia Dortmund in his seven seasons at Signal Iduna Park winning Bundesliga twice, DFB Pokal once, DFB Supercup twice and also finished as runners-up in UEFA champions League 2012-13.
He was awarded German Football Manager of the Year twice and also was runners up in FIFA World Coach of the Year in 2013.
Klopp is massively popular among the fans for his passion on the sidelines, determination and working well with a weaker team making them world class. He temporarily broke Bayern’s domination in Germany and also made some world class talents reach their potentials like Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gotze, Mats Hummels, Shinji Kagawa, Nuri Sahin and many more.
