LIVERPOOL has two main contenders to take over as manager of the club: former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp and ex-Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti according to the latest reports on Monday October 6.
After Brendan Rodgers was sacked following a 1-1 draw with Everton on Sunday the club is eager to appoint a new boss in the shortest possible turnaround.
The BBC reports that Klopp has spoken to ex-Liverpool and Germany midfielder Dietmar Hamann about the club and is said to be interested in the position.
The Liverpool job has also been linked to Carlo Ancelotti who Derby boss Paul Clement said would be the ‘perfect’ candidate for the role.
Clement, who was Ancelotti’s assistant during his tenure at Real Madrid and also part of his coaching staff at Chelsea and PSG, told Sky Sports:
“He had a great career as a player and a sterling career as a coach as well in terms of what he’s won and the clubs he has managed.”
Rodgers in the meantime has released a statement via the League Managers’ Association saying “It has been both an honour and a privilege to manage one of the game’s great clubs.
“I have worked every day to represent the club to the best of my ability, to develop both individual players and a team that the club’s magnificent fans can be proud of.”
The new manager at Anfield will be tasked with delivering on the club’s top four ambition after an average league placing of fifth during Rodger’’ three full seasons in charge.
