Liverpool agree deal to appoint Jurgen Klopp as new Anfield boss according to media reports

Former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has reportedly agreed a three year deal to take over as Liverpool manager according to Bosnian source Pravdabl.

Pressure has certainly been mounting on Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers and some sources believe that the Northern Irishman could be axed if Liverpool lose to Everton in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.

48-year-old German Klopp is available having quit Borussia Dortmund at the end of last season and is certainly a well respected successful manager capable of filling the void should Liverpool’s owners seek to sack Rodgers.

Rodgers guided Liverpool to an impressive Premier League runners-up finish in 2013/14 but the subsequent sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona has led to a very lean period.

Last season Liverpool could only manage sixth and therefore failed to retain their Champions League berth and the current campaign has been an up and down one for Rodgers with his side sitting in tenth place.

Klopp spent seven seasons in charge at the Westfalenstadion and led Dortmund to four top two finishes, winning the Bundesliga on two occasions, and helped guide the club to the 2013 Champions League final, before losing to domestic rivals Bayern Munich.
