Real Madrid targeted Klopp as replacement for Zidane, Liverpool fans react

Some football fans of elite clubs may have felt slightly nervous when Zinedine Zidane left his role as head coach of Real Madrid because when Los Blancos come knocking, it is hard to say no.

Jurgen Klopp has been in charge of Liverpool since October 2015 and swiftly became a favourite among the fanbase.

The German coach has taken the club to three cup finals, but has lost each of them.

Despite this, he has shaped a squad that look like genuine title contenders this season.

In the Premier League, the Reds sit third in the table after eight games and are level on points with leaders Manchester City and second-placed Chelsea.

It is safe to say that Liverpool fans are happy with Klopp at the helm, but their world might have been rocked in the summer.

According to¬†Mundo Deportivo, the former Borussia Dortmund boss was on Madrid’s radar following the departure of Zidane.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino and Juventus coach Max Allegri were also on the shortlist, but in the end they went with Julen Lopetegui, who has been struggling of late.

On Reddit, Liverpool fans posted their reactions to the news about Madrid’s alleged interest in Klopp.
