Jurgen Klopp issues come and get me message to Liverpool?

As speculation continues to grow over Brendan Rodgers’ future at Liverpool, reports on Thursday suggest Jurgen Klopp would cut short his sabbatical to take over at Anfield.

According to reports, Klopp is willing to end his year-long sabbatical early in order to work in the Premier League.

Sky Sports claim Klopp’s intention to take a year-long sabbatical may have shifted and the chance to take over at Anfield – were Rodgers to be sacked – might be too good to turn down.

The 48-year-old has been top of Liverpool fans’ wish-list when it comes to potential replacements for the under-fire Rodgers, with his playing style and personality clearly appealing to many.

Klopp enjoyed a wonderful spell with Borussia Dortmund during a superb seven-year reign, winning two Bundesliga titles and reaching the 2013 Champions League Final, among other successes.

The news is sure to excite many Reds supporters, who continue to round on Rodgers after yet another uninspiring performance on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool could only beat League Two side Carlisle United on penalties in the League Cup, with resounding boos echoing around Anfield at full-time.

It is certainly easy to see Klopp in charge at Anfield, but whether there is enough substance to the rumours may become clearer in the next few days.

Many respected journalists have claimed FSG have no intention of approaching Klopp, with a report last weekend suggesting FSG had been warned off the German.

Liverpool yesterday moved to deny reports they had approached Carlo Ancelotti with reports suggesting the club had contacted him to gauge his interest in taking over at Anfield.

Speculation increases, but who is to say FSG won’t stick with the Ulsterman for now?
