Emre Can backs Jurgen Klopp appointment at Liverpool

first_imgJurgen Klopp has emerged as the clear frontrunner for the Anfield hot seat – and plenty have chimed in with their thoughts.The former Borussia Dortmund coach is favourite to take over from Brendan Rodgers, with ex-Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti also in the frame.Klopp is understood to be open to the idea of a move, with reports suggesting that talks between Liverpool and his representatives were progressing well.The 48-year-old has been out of work since leaving Dortmund in the summer.Klopp won two German Bundesliga titles at Dortmund and led the club to the finals of the Champions League in 2013, but lost the German Cup final to Wolfsburg in his final game in charge at the end of the 2014-15 season, during which his side struggled in the domestic league, eventually finishing seventh.VOTE OF CONFIDENCE FROM WITHIN THE SQUAD There is even enthusiasm from within the current LFC squad towards the potential appointment of Klopp.“Jurgen Klopp is certainly a great coach,” Can told German newspaper Die Welt. “I think he has demonstrated in Dortmund that he can work at any team in the world.”The 48-year-old German speaks good English and said last year that he wanted to work in the Premier League one day.“I think that apart from Germany, England is the only other country where I should work,” Klopp said. “Simply because I know a little of the language and I need the language for my work.”EFFENBERG: KLOPP ‘WOULD SUIT’ LIVERPOOL Former Germany midfielder Stefan Effenberg believes Klopp will be back coaching “very, very soon” and thinks he is suited to Anfield.”He gave me this answer a couple of weeks ago. He said, ‘I’m ready for a team that’s not on the highest level, to create something, to build something up’. This could be Liverpool, right?,” Effenberg, who has played 35 times for Germany, told the BBC.”Liverpool is one of the greatest atmospheres. It’s pretty much the same as Dortmund. The fans stay with everything behind the club and this is what Jurgen Klopp likes and what he needs,” the BBC quoted Effenberg as saying at the ASPIRE4SPORT conference in Berlin.”So maybe, very soon, we’ll hear something from Jurgen Klopp, to make a decision, maybe, for Liverpool.”– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
