Klopp ready to step, as pressure grows on Rodgers at Liverpool
Former Borussia Dortmund boss, Jurgen Klopp, is reportedly ready to take on a new managerial role in the Premier League as pressure continues to mount on Brendan Rodgers.
The Liverpool boss is under intense scrutiny after his side slumped to their sixth consecutive game without a win in 90 minutes on Wednesday night.
Liverpool required penalties to edge past League Two mid-tablers Carlisle United to progress in the Capital One Cup.
Amazingly, the Reds have only scored more than one goal in a game on two occasions since the first week of March.
With pressure mounting on Rodgers, Klopp has been sounding out his next managerial job – and Sky Sports report that he is ready to move to England.
Klopp has been out of the game since leaving the Borussia Dortmund in May.
But it is believed that Klopp has had no contact from Anfield chiefs just yet.
However, Liverpool might have to act quickly in order to secure his signature, as Klopp has also been sounded out as the potential next manager of Bayern Munich.
After his Dortmund departure, however, his agent Marc Kosicke said that he would consider a non-top four Premier League club.
Kosicke said: “The Premier League is very exciting, and we do not only think about the top four because there are some other great clubs below them.”
Klopp has been spending some of his sabbatical watching Mainz in the Bundesliga – the team he proudly supports being a former player and manager.
