As the much shared and retweeted Thierry Henry and Jamie Carragher Super Sunday Vine on social media proved, despite Liverpool enduring a tough series of games, it was still a rather sudden shock that Brendan Rodgers was relieved of his duties as Liverpool manager yesterday evening.
The only Reds boss not to win a single honour in his first three seasons in charge, the Northern Irishman will now be looking for another job with his last game coming in yesterday’s 1-1 Merseyside Derby with Everton.
Simply drawing too many games in all competitions this season while again investing huge money into a squad with no immediate returns on that investment, Rodgers has now paid the price for Liverpool’s mediocrity.
At the same time, we mustn’t forget that Rodgers almost led Liverpool to their first ever Premier League title in the modern era back in 2013/14 but losing Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard, Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge to injury has hit both he and Liverpool hard and you can see why many think the time for change is justified.
Rodgers will undoubtedly get another job given the fact he’s a good coach but you just feel Liverpool need somebody of greater worldwide repute to truly haul the Anfield club back into the upper echelons of not only English football but European competition to boot given the fact they still reside as one of the world’s biggest clubs.
The favourite to replace Rodgers right now is former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp who is 2/7 with several bookmakers to succeed the Northern Irishman.
The outstanding candidate on the unemployed list right now alongside the likes of Carlo Ancelotti, today we’ve devised five reasons why it simply has to be #Klopp4TheKop and no, just because his surname rhymes with the Kop, this isn’t a reason!
