Former AC Milan and Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti flew to London on Sunday night after Liverpool sacked boss Brendan Rodgers, but Jurgen Klopp is still the favourite to take the helm at Anfield, according to reports from the Daily Mail.
Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon called Rodgers after the Reds’ 1-1 Merseyside derby draw with Everton and dismissed the Northern Irishman, with the international break giving the club two weeks to find a successor.
A statement on Liverpool’s website read: “Liverpool Football Club has announced that Brendan Rodgers will leave his post with immediate effect after having his contract terminated. The process to appoint a new manager is underway.”
It has been claimed that Liverpool will not hire a caretaker manager for the time being, with the new man expected to be fully in charge by the time the Reds face Tottenham Hotspur on the 17th this month.
Currently Ancelotti is in England and is willing to hold talks over the position, but the club are hoping to bring ex-Dortmund gaffer Klopp to the Kop.
It is still uncertain whether Rodgers’ coaching staff will also be dismissed, but there are likely to be further changes once a new manager is appointed.
