Liverpool Urged To Consider Carlo Ancelotti, Jurgen Klopp

Reports are out claiming that Robbie Savage believes Liverpool should consider bringing in Jurgen Klopp or Carlo Ancelotti to replace current manager Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers’ job security has come into question following Liverpool’s disappointing start to the Premier League season, made worse by a 3-1 loss to fierce rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Savage believes Rodgers deserves more time, after the Welshman spent £70million in the transfer market this summer.

However, should the Merseyside club decide to change managers, Savage says Klopp and Ancelotti are the best candidates to take over the role.

“Rodgers is the first Liverpool manager since the 1950s not to win a trophy in his first three seasons in charge,” Savage told The Mirror.

“As much as I disagree with modern football’s sacking culture, he sanctioned the departure of members of his back-room staff in the summer, so he is vulnerable now. There is nowhere left for him to hide.

“And with Jurgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti both currently out of work, there are attractive alternatives if John W Henry decides that a change is in order.

“I would give Rodgers more time, with a top-four finish as his bare minimum target, but the time for long-term philosophies has passed.

“Winning football matches is the only way ahead for him now.”
