Liverpool legend Dietmar Hamann has backed former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp to replace Brendan Rodgers, according to reports from the Daily Star.
The Reds have so far picked up two wins, two losses, and one draw, but he looks to be under pressure following his team’s 3-1 loss to rival Manchester United at the weekend.
Klopp was one of the names linked to the managerial role at Anfield during the summer after deciding to leave the German giants at the end of the previous campaign.
However, his agent admitted that the German boss will not be returning back into management until at least the summer.
Hamann revealed Klopp would be a great addition to the Reds managerial staff, but is also being linked as a replacement to Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola.
“Had they asked before the season, I am 99 percent sure that he would have joined them. Many people say that he will take over Bayern on July 1, 2016, but I don’t know whether he’s a fit there. He’d be a great fit at Liverpool,” he said.
Rodgers future will be heavily scrutinized heading into his next fixtures against Bordeaux in the UEFA Europa League, followed by a league match against Norwich City, before facing Carlisle in the League Cup.
