According to Tony Barrett of The Times, Liverpool’s American owners are not interested in appointing Jurgen Klopp if they decided to sack current manager Brendan Rodgers. Rodgers job is under fire after winning just one out of the last seven games, and another couple of poor results might end his career at Liverpool. Barrett in his webchat confirmed Klopp would be interested in managing the Reds, but FSG’s current head of in charge at Liverpool Mike Gordon isn’t interested in bringing Klopp to Anfield. Barrett also confirmed John W Henry was previously interested in bring Klopp to Anfield when he was the boss at Borussia Dortmund, but with Mike Gordon in charge of the club matters now will look elsewhere.
According to reports, former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp and Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti have expressed their interest to manage Liverpool, and have been strongly linked to Liverpool. Earlier, Brendan Rodgers reiterated that none of this concerns him, and his relationship with owners is always strong.
He said: “In terms of names linked, when you’re manager of a club this size, there is always going to be speculation, especially when not winning.
“Since I have been here I think there have been ten managers linked with job and part and parcel of the game. I have regular contact with the owners and the relationship is always strong
“Whether I am here for one day or more or one month or whatever I will always have respect for the people here, the owners and Ian Ayre . I will do what I will always do and do the best I can.
“If you don’t get result the pressure is here but I enjoy challenges. I walked in here as a 38 year old manager and as I sit here I am much better manager, but I understand I must get results. We know with one win you are back near the top four.
“I don’t think it goes away unless one you are winning games and get the performance level. For me I know we have created the expectancy because we produced a high level. We created the expectancy because of how well the team is operating.
“It is something I focus on with the team. I hope to be a manager for 20 years. I know it won’t be 20 years but whil here I want to fight for the club and the players.”
