Liverpool managerial candidate rules out deal

Liverpool’s move to bring in Jurgen Klopp as Brendan Rodgers’ successor has moved a step closer with a rival candidate, Frank de Boer, having ruled out the possibility of moving from Ajax to Anfield.

The Dutchman was one of the names in the mix following the exit of the Northern Irishman on Sunday, with the former Netherlands and Rangers player having been a candidate to take charge on Merseyside back in 2012.

The runaway favourite has been ex-Dortmund manager Klopp since Rodgers was relieved of his duties after the 1-1 draw at Everton, but De Boer has been mentioned after guiding Ajax to four Eredivisie titles in his five years at the Amsterdam ArenA.

But, the highly-rated tactician has claimed that he’ll be staying where he is for at least the rest of the current campaign:

“I’ll stay at Ajax for the (rest of the) season.” He is quoted by Voetball International.

Reports from the reputable BBC Sport claim that Klopp could be officially Liverpool’s manager by Friday, while there were claims from Bosnian outlet Pravdabl that a deal has been ‘agreed’ with the former BVB man over the weekend.
