Cue the red tops’ headlines of “Klopp for Kop”, “Klopp of the Kops” and “Klopp Cops Kop Job”, as Jurgen Klopp, has been appointed Liverpool FC boss, on a three year deal, and is expected to be confirmed in the post in the week
The former Borussia Dortmund and Mainz 05 manager has been in discussions with club officials at Melwood, and has agreed to replace Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked on Sunday after three years at the club.
Carlo Ancelotti was also in the frame for the position. But Klopp, who has turned down the chance to become Liverpool boss twice in recent years, is the man FSG believe will bring glory back to Anfield. And after leaving Dortmund in the summer, the highly-rated manager is ready to take on the Premier League.
And there’s more good news for reds fans, as club-legend Robbie Fowler is expected to be involved in Liverpool’s hopeful resurgence.
