Liverpool have made contact with Jurgen Kloppa s representatives as they consider alternative managerial candidates, Football Insider report.
Things havena t gone very well for Rodgers and Liverpool since the defeat to Manchester United last month and there is a lot of talking about the Northern Irishman and his future with the club.
It has been reported in the recent past by various media outlets that Liverpool will review Rodgersa position at the end of the season as part of a thorough assessment of all areas of the club, including the first-team squad, the coaching staff and the much-debated transfer committee.
The fact that Jurgen Klopp has made himself available recently doesn’t help Rodgers’s case and German football expert Raf Honigstein said on TalkSport that the Klopp knows that he wona t be approached by one of the top 4 English clubs currently, but could find it very tough to turn the Liverpool job down.
Manchester United’s recent three successive defeats might have offered Rodgers a miraculous life-line, but the Reds are almost certainly out of the running for Champions League football next season and FSG, who have earned the “ruthless” tag, could try and replace him with Klopp.
There is visible discontent among Liverpool supporters and a plane carrying a banner declaring a Rodgers Out, Rafa Ina was flown over Anfield right before the match against QPR yesterday. The message is an evident of protest developing in some pockets of the Liverpool fan-base against Reds boss Brendan Rodgers after a disappointing season for the Anfield side.
The Reds will finish the season without silverware, making Rodgers the first Liverpool manager since the 1950s to not lift silverware in his first three years in charge since. Liverpool face champions-elect Chelsea in the league next Sunday and would need to win the game at Stamford Bridge for them to have even the slightest top-4 possibilities.
The report continues to say that in the end of season assessment, Even if the decision to keep Rodgers for a third year gets taken, there is a good possibility of the six-man transfer committee being revamped or a director of football, something Rodgers has opposed in the past, being appointed.
Needless to say, this is one saga you are unlikely to hear the end of, till an official statement from someplace is brought to the fore.
