Jurgen Klopp has once again sent the rumour mill on Merseyside into overdrive, in giving a candid interview to Bild where he seems to hint towards his next managerial destination. In the interview, Klopp suggests that his next move "may not be to an absolute top club", and that there are "exciting clubs that need help" that he may be interested by.
That's all very well and good of Klopp, who has openly flirted with the idea of managing in England before, and is widely tipped to be Brendan Rodgers' successor should the Northern Irishman face the sack this year. But has this ship already sailed? Despite being widely expected to face the sack, Rodgers has received unequivocal backing by Liverpool's American owners this year, being allowed free reign on deciding backroom staff and on summer transfers - a signal of intent from FSG that Rodgers is here to stay. Even if Rodgers fails to deliver - and surely if he does not manage top 4, he will be said to have failed - will Klopp still be out of a job by that point? As it stands, 'Klopp for the Kop' may just remain a pipe-dream for many Liverpool fans.
