What is going on at Liverpool? With the club seemingly in their biggest crisis in years, they appear to have no idea which way to turn to solve their problems.
It looks as if Roy Hodsgon’s days are definitely numbered. That’s fair enough given their recent results, performances and the pressure from the fans on the board to sack the current manager and replace him with club legend Kenny Dalglish.
So why instead, have they first been linked with a return for Rafael Benitez, and now with Jurgen Klopp of Borussia Dortmund and Ralf Rangnick, formerly of Hoffenheim? Is this the done thing to employ German coaches? Are they specifically after newly-unemployed managers? Are they each masterstrokes that will eventually come off? Or are they just desperate?
The Benitez rumour was probably nothing ever more than that, but it appears there is more substance to the recent reports emerging out of the German press that Roy Hodgson’s successor will come from the Bundesliga.
Klopp, who has taken Dortmund to the top of the German domestic league by a whopping ten points is the man of the moment, but is he enough to satisfy the Kop?
And then, it has been suggested in some quarters that NESV are considering Ralf Rangnick, recently resigned as of Saturday from German minnows Hoffenheim. Surely the job Rangnick did there doesn’t in any way resemble the rebuilding job he would have to do at Anfield?
And why don’t the new owners want Dalglish back as manager? Are they scared of King Kenny in the hotseat?
