Liverpool News Updates
We all know that Liverpool are trying to bring former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp to Anfield as a replacement for Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked recently. Now, many of the ex-Reds’ stars are quite happy with his move including Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness, who have supported this decision.
Former defender Mark Lawrenson wrote in his BBC Sport column, “Whoever it is will have to buy into the mindset of the American owners – they want success, but their model is to try to get that by signing younger players they can train up and, sometimes, sell on. Jurgen Klopp is the favourite to get the job and he would fit the bill. At Borussia Dortmund, he built a team that were in your face, with good players that he was making better, but he also knew he would have to sell one or even two every year.”
Lawrenson further stated in the Liverpool Echo, “What he did at Borussia Dortmund was special and if he can get Liverpool playing that way, the fans will absolutely love him. Now, though, Liverpool are as far away from nailing down a Champions League spot as ever they have been. Carlo Ancelotti is also in the running. But Klopp is a much better fit for the FSG model.”
