With an announcement expected by the end of the week, according to ESPNFC, Jürgen Klopp is set to become the latest manager take up the hot seat at Liverpool Football Club. Jürgen Klopp have been heavily linked with the Liverpool managerial role as early as the start of the year. The charismatic German manager is seen by many as the perfect fit for the illustrious giant of English football however, Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool is riddled with problems stretching as far back as Klopp’s career as a player.
It seems that it’s now a matter of when rather than if Jürgen Klopp is appointed the manager of Liverpool Football Club. Klopp is set to encounter a myriad of issues at Anfield, both on and off the field. Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool has been performing below expectations this season and save for one season in 2013/2014, his Liverpool squad rarely lived up to the hefty expectations of fans.
At the moment, Jürgen Klopp would be confronted with a mediocre Liverpool squad with high expectations. Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool squad is woefully unbalanced. In 2014, Rodgers’ came the closest to breaking Liverpool’s drought for the league title. However, a leaky and anemic defense left Liverpool trophyless after a season that promised so much due to its stellar attack. Luis Suarez was then the lynchpin to Liverpool’s success. Since his departure, Liverpool have failed to show its true potential.
