Klopp’s not joining, folks…
Today, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that he’s taking some time out from football, suggesting that he’s not available for the Liverpool job – should the owners sack Brendan Rodgers.
“I will take a break until further notice,” Klopp said.
“After seven intensive and emotional years of ‘real love’ it makes sense to digest the uncountable memories before I and my coaching team take over a new challenge fresh and highly motivated.”
With Carlo Ancelotti similarly choosing to take a sabbatical – our options are becoming increasingly obvious – and it looks as though Rodgers will be given another chance.
If we cannot get Jurgen Klopp, then I would give Brendan Rodgers another season to turn it around. Could still be a top manager imo. #LFC

With Klopp taking a break & Carlo Ancelotti mulling over a return to AC Milan, #LFC don’t have any real alternatives to Brendan Rodgers

Klopp confirms he will be taking a break. Sack Rodgers at Christmas after a poor start to the season? — Indigo (@IndigoLFC) June 1, 2015
Who cares who is coming over. If Klopp is no longer available then does it matter how poor Rodgers was last season? He stays by default

Well that’s Klopp not coming to Liverpool then. — LFC Fans Corner (@LFCFansCorner) June 1, 2015
Klopp’s not taking a sabbatical, he’s taking time off in Liverpool to learn the ways of the Scouse. He’s the new @DietmarHamann.

As soon as Klopp got approached by Liverpool, he decided to take a year break. Haha. Coincidence? I think not.

Concerned now about Liverpool, Klopp is taking a break that means he is always on standby regardless so Rogers becomes dead man walking — peter wilson (@palmfanatic) June 1, 2015
Oh, Klopp isn’t coming to Liverpool? I am so stunned by that, really I am. Don’t know why people were so delusional thinking he would.

That’s dissapointing that Jürgen Klopp is taking a break from football. I was looking forward to him being my assistant. — Deluded Brendan (@DeludedBrendan) June 1, 2015
