Stan Collymore explains key difference between Jurgen Klopp and Brendan Rodgers; Liverpool to benefit

J├╝rgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers as head coach of Liverpool.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Stan Collymore has explained that there is one key difference between Jurgen Klopp and Brendan Rodgers, which will really help Liverpool when the transfer window opens in January.

He said: “The difference between Brendan and Klopp is that Klopp can bring names in [in the transfer window], and Rodgers couldn’t.”

By this, Collymore means that Klopp’s reputation has a larger draw for incoming signings, meaning Liverpool could bring in some truly top class players when the transfer window opens.

Many of the players from Klopp’s successful Dortmund team would want to link up with the head coach again, and whilst few would have been believable signings under Rodgers, the German boss could easily tempt them to Anfield.

Whilst Rodgers could only bring former players in of the quality of Fabio Borini and Joe Allen, Klopp could realistically sign someone like Marco Reus or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Liverpool’s squad is poor, and the results that Klopp has picked up with the team he inherited from Rodgers have been impressive.

However, when the transfer window opens, and Klopp can use his reputation to bring better players in, there is no doubt that Liverpool’s performances and results will only get better.
