Liverpool betting update: Klopp odds updated, shock candidate emerges, De Boer drifting

Jurgen Klinsmann USA

Liverpool have sacked manager Brendan Rodgers - who could replace him?

Liverpool have confirmed on their official website that they have parted company with manager Brendan Rodgers - even after the club's 1-1 draw with Merseyside rivals Everton.

The 42-year-old has been under pressure from Reds fans for some time now, and his reign at Anfield is now over having lost his job on Sunday evening.

Bookmakers are already pricing up odds for who could replace Rodgers - here are some of the notable names involved this evening, with odds compiled by Oddschecker.

Odds shortening

United States manager Jurgen Klinsmann is under pressure right now, but that hasn't stopped him becoming a shock candidate at Anfield. American owner John Henry will be familiar with his work, and bookmakers have now priced German Klinsmann - a former Tottenham striker - at around 16/1 to become the new Liverpool manager.

Highly-rated in Spain having won the Europa League for the last two years with Sevilla, Unai Emery could be a dark horse for the Reds job. His side haven't made the best of starts to the La Liga season, but his odds are now shortening to around 25/1 to make the move to Anfield.

Odds drifting

A main favourite on Sunday, former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is slowly drifting out. The Italian left Real Madrid at the end of last season, and whilst he remains second favourite for the Liverpool job at around 9/2, it looks less and less likely that Ancelotti will be making the move to Merseyside.

Ajax boss Frank de Boer has long impressed with the Amsterdam giants, but his run of Eredivisie title wins ended last season as PSV took the crown. The last year or so hasn't been easy for De Boer, and whilst he is bringing through some more promising youngsters for Ajax, it would be a major gamble for Liverpool to appoint him - and the odds reflect that, with odds drifting out to as far as 27/1.

The favourite

Unsurprisingly, the runaway leader is still Jurgen Klopp. The former Borussia Dortmund manager is the red-hot favourite to replace Rodgers at Liverpool, with odds now as short as 1/10 at this stage. The German, who won two Bundesliga titles at Dortmund, and took the team to the Champions League final in 2013, would be a popular choice for Liverpool fans.
