For fans of other clubs in the Football Transfer Tavern this evening, it’s simply inescapable. Jurgen Klopp is the new Liverpool manager and in fairness to Reds supporters, you can’t begrudge them their moment!
An outstanding appointment on paper, Klopp has steadily seen his stock rise as a manager with international repute given his fine workings with Borussia Dortmund whom he secured back-to-back Bundesliga titles with a few seasons back.
Now experiencing his first taste of management outside his German homeland, Klopp has described the Liverpool job as the most challenging in world football yet everybody is incredibly eager for the domestic action to return so we can see how he goes about shaping this Reds side who are playing at a mediocre level at the moment.
Only four points off second-placed Arsenal and third-placed Manchester United at present, if Klopp can go on a positive early run, there’s no reason why the Reds can’t haul themselves up into the top four reckoning and then maybe the title race yet again if sides continue to falter in front of them.
That said, no matter what happens in the next few weeks, Reds fans are a lot more hopeful once again with many having lost a sense of direction in where Brendan Rodgers was taking the team.
With Klopp set to put his stamp on this Liverpool team and with the January transfer window on the horizon, many fans by the bar are nattering that the German boss will want to bring his own new players in and with this in mind, we’ve devised a list of five current Reds stars who could be facing the chop from the Kop under Klopp!
