If there’s one domestic matter that is dominating the footballing headlines despite the international break arriving this week, it’s all about Liverpool’s search for a new manager after Brendan Rodgers’ departure.
In truth right now, the Northern Irishman’s successor looks like being former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp who the Reds are hoping to have in place by Friday but nothing is set in stone at the moment.
A hugely charismatic personality, if the Reds are to appoint Klopp, the German will be taking over a Liverpool side jammed right in the middle of the Premier League table right now in 10th place and on 12 points.
Just four points off third placed Manchester United at the moment, the Reds aren’t that far away with the situation being far from a disaster but Rodgers’ dismissal ultimately came after the manager seemingly ran out of ideas on how to motivate his squad and particularly his defence to produce consistent performances.
Falling short in the transfer market too despite investing heavily in playing staff, Reds supporters will hope that whatever the future brings will help trophies arrive more readily at Anfield than they have been with Liverpool’s last major success coming back in 2012 under Kenny Dalglish when the Reds won the League Cup against Cardiff City.
But what if Klopp opts not to sign on the dotted line, claims one of our punters briefly turning around from his spell on the fruity in the corner; what then?
Well, one of the other outstanding candidates out of work at the moment is former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti who was relieved of his duties as Real Madrid manager at the end of last season.
With the Italian in mind, we’ve devised a list of five reasons why Carlo Ancelotti is a better bet than Jurgen Klopp to succeed Brendan Rodgers instead of the German.
