Liverpool legend Didi Hamann tips former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp to be “a great fit at Liverpool” if owners decide to replace Manager Brendan Rodgers.
Rodgers is under increasing pressure at Liverpool following poor start to the season after the defeat to bitter rivals Manchester United.
There is no sign yet that American owners FSG are ready to end Rodgers’ three-year reign at Anfield after allowing him to spend over £80million reshaping his Liverpool squad this summer.
Hamann says Klopp would be perfect for Liverpool if the club owners did want to replace Rodgers.
Hamann while speaking on Sky Germany: “The pressure in Liverpool gets bigger. The fans are on the barricades. But the coach is backed by the club, and anyway the question is – would Klopp move there during the season?
“Had they asked before the season, I am 99 per cent sure that he would have joined them.
“Many people say that he will take over Bayern on July 1, 2016, but I don’t know whether he’s a fit there. He’d be a great fit at Liverpool.”
