Liverpool to turn to German as Rodgers nears exit

Liverpool are already lining up Jurgen Klopp to succeed under-fire manager Brendan Rodgers, according to reports from The Express.

The Reds chief was under immense pressure before today’s shock loss at Crystal Palace, with his underperforming side having made a stuttering start to the season.

Rodgers’ side are currently in the bottom half of the table after 12 games, while their European fate is also in the balance following three losses from four games – including a 3-0 drubbing at home to Real Madrid.

With the Merseysiders having won just two of their last nine league games, fans are beginning to turn on the manager – who narrowly missed out on securing Liverpool’s first Premier League title last season – and the board are similarly panicked.

Reports suggest that Klopp is seen as the man to save the day, with the German boss’ tenure at Dortmund also in doubt after a tricky start to the season.

Arsenal also want the highly-rated coach, who recently opened the door for a move to English football:

“I think England is the only country I think where I should work.” He said.

“It’s next to Germany because it’s the only country I know the language a little bit and I need the language for my work.

“If somebody will call me, then we will talk about it.”
