Carlo Ancelotti has been rumoured to be amongst those, currently being considered, to fill the management post left by the sacking of Brandan Rogers. Earlier this week Rodgers reportedly stated that he did not fear the axe. But last night’s draw proved to be the last match he would manage the Reds.
Carlo Ancelotti could be a great choice for Liverpool. The former Real Madrid boss is known worldwide for his skills as a manager, and for the work he did with his previous club. In fact Real Madrid has been described as mad for letting him go. Carlo Ancelotti would most definitely be an asset. It is easy to see why he is a favourite to fill the void.
In addition to Carlo Ancelotti, Jurgen Klopp has been named as a major contender for the role, with Klopp reportedly a firm favourite for Liverpool officials.
The rumour of Klopp in the role is fuelled further by Stefan Effenberg. He is a former midfielder for Germany’s national team. Effenberg offered up his thoughts at a sports conference in Berlin:
“Liverpool is one of the greatest atmospheres. It’s pretty much the same as Dortmund. The fans stay with everything behind the club and this is what Jurgen Klopp likes and what he needs. So maybe, very soon, we’ll hear something from Jurgen Klopp, to make a decision, maybe, for Liverpool.”
Following on from yesterday’s one all draw against Everton the shocking announcement, to relieve Brandan Rodgers of his duties, was made. Liverpool released a statement, seemingly aimed at the fans, reassuring them that a replacement would be appointed very soon:
“The search for a new manager is under way and we hope to make an appointment in a decisive and timely manner.”
In order to ensure that there were no bad feelings following the decisions made, principal owner John W Henry, chairman Tom Werner and president Gordon, issued a joint statement thanking Rogers for his efforts at the club:
“We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Brendan Rodgers for the significant contribution he has made to the club and express our gratitude for his hard work and commitment. All of us have experienced some wonderful moments with Brendan as manager and we are confident he will enjoy a long career in the game.”
Justifying the decision they went on to state:
“Ambition and winning are at the heart of what we want to bring to Liverpool and we believe this change gives us the best opportunity to deliver it.”
