Liverpool have made contact with representatives of Jurgen Klopp as they look to replace sacked manager Brendan Rodgers. The former Borussia Dortmund coach is favourite to take over from the Northern Irishman, with exChelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti a strong contender.
German Klopp, 48, is understood to be open to the idea of a move. The club’s owners intend to have a new manager in place for the Premier League trip to Tottenham on 17 October.
In a statement issued by the League Managers’ Association on his behalf, Rodgers, 42, said he was “incredibly
disappointed” his three-and-a-halfyear tenure at Anfield is over.
