Liverpool: Ancelotti Or Klopp To Manage At Anfield

LiverpoolLess than 24 hours after Brendan Rodgers was sacked by Premier League club, Liverpool, speculation is already rife that either Juergen Klopp or Carlo Ancelotti would be the new manager at Anfield.

Liverpool terminated the contract of Rodgers on Sunday, just eight games into the English Premier League season, with the five-time European champions languishing in 10th place.

The announcement came three hours after the team had drawn 1-1 at Everton in the Merseyside derby, leaving them with only three wins from their first eight league games this term.

Klopp has been without a club since he left Borussia Dortmund at the end of last season, while Ancelotti also left Real Madrid after finishing second best to Barcelona in La Liga and the Champions League.

Former manager, Rodgers, who took over in June 2012, led Liverpool to second place in the 2013-14 campaign, when they led the title race with three games to go, but lost out to Manchester City.
