Guillem Balague explains why Klopp might not join Liverpool, tweets bizarre alternative

The Spanish football expert has posted a very questionable tweet about the Reds indeed.

Spanish football expert and Sky Sports journalist Guillem Balague feels Jurgen Klopp is still waiting for the Bayern Munich job, although that doesn't stop his representatives 'talking' to Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers was sacked on Sunday afternoon and Klopp is currently a free agent.

But Balague thinks the German is holding out for Bayern, while he has also made the very, very questionable suggestion that Gary McAllister should take over until the end of the season - with Bayer Leverkusen boss Roger Schmidt appointed in the summer.

Balague has got some things right in the past. He's got a huge amount wrong.

But this is just plain bizarre.

His point about Klopp may be valid, although the immense volume of speculation linking him to the Liverpool job suggests it is a very likely move indeed.

His McAllister/Schmidt comments, though, are perhaps made to entertain. Let's hope the journalist is indeed making a simple joke.

McAllister was a superb midfielder for Liverpool but, as a manager, his record barely registers. Perhaps if Balague was discussing his own club, he wouldn't be so willing to just throw a whole season away...
