‘Liverpool may be tempted by Klopp’, talkSPORT told

first_imgTony Evans, The Times’ Football Editor, claims Liverpool may be tempted to replace Brendan Rodgers with Jurgen Klopp this summer.The current Reds manager has come under pressure throughout the season, after failing to emulate last year’s heroics, which saw them almost lift the Premier League title.Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp has announced he will leave the Bundesliga giants at the end of the season, and Evans believes the Fenway Sports Group (FSG), Liverpool’s owners, may be interested in the 47-year-old.“Liverpool might be tempted by Jurgen Klopp,” he told Hawksbee and Jacobs. “I wouldn’t say Brendan Rodgers is safe. I didn’t realise how close he was to losing his job in December until recently. FSG are very ruthless and they have a vision of how they want this club to work.”But Evans added the American owners may have to change their model slightly if they’re to attract the cream of European managers.“If they went to Jurgen Klopp and said, ‘this is how it’s going to work’, I don’t think many managers of the highest standing would accept the way they want to go forward,” he said.“They get the transfer committee to target players and giving the manager a group of young players to work with and coach them. Klopp would want more say over any new arrival.”last_img read more
