Report: Liverpool linked Jurgen Klopp open to England move

The German was last in charge of Borussia Dortmund, and with Brendan Rodgers struggling this season, has seen his name associated with a move to Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp would cut short his sabbatical to take the right Premier League job, says Sky Sports, as the 48-year-old continues to be linked with a switch to Liverpool as a possible replacement for struggling manager Brendan Rodgers.

Sky suggest he is open to ending his self-imposed year long sabbatical after leaving Borussia Dortmund, and would be eager to work in the English top flight, although the report also states that there has currently been no contact from Anfield. 

The German, who enjoyed a phenomenal spell with the Bundesliga giants in what was a seven year spell at the Westfalenstadion that saw him win two league titles and finish as runners-up in the Champions League, has long been heralded as one of the top managers in the game.

Klopp impressed many with his brand of exciting, attacking football at Dortmund, which whether or not it was the focus or not, provided plenty of entertainment value in both the domestic German league and European competition.

He was linked with a whole host of jobs across the continent both before he announced his decision to leave Dortmund and the time since, with Arsenal, Manchester United and the Reds all seeing their name associated with the affable former defender at one point or another.

And though there are no top jobs free right now, it is inevitable that Klopp will once more be mentioned when one of the big six clubs next decide to make a change in management, and Liverpool, with no wins in six matches, could be the first outfit to make a change if the likes of the Guardian are to be believed.
