Liverpool are wasting no time in finding a replacement for sacked manager Brendan Rodgers, and according to BBC Sport, expect to have Jurgen Klopp signed and sealed by Friday.
The German is open to a move having been out of work since stepping down from his position at Borussia Dortmund at the end of last season. Talks are ongoing and progressing well, the report claims, and there seems no reason why he won’t be in charge before the end of the week.
The 48-year-old had planned on taking a year long sabbatical, but with the Liverpool job now available, Klopp is expected to cut it short and take the Anfield plunge.
The position became available following Sunday’s 1-1 Merseyside derby draw with Everton, which left Liverpool 10th in the Premier League table having only scored eight goals in eight matches so far. Poor performances had turned the majority of the fan base against Brendan Rodgers, who had his tenure cut short by FSG as a result.
The clamour and excitement around Klopp is now close to boiling point as Liverpool fans look forward to a new era at the club.
