After a painful defeat by Real Madrid with a score of 5-2 at their home ground Anfield, the Liverpool board showed signs of impatience with Jurgen Klopp and is considering a young replacement.
Hosting Real Madrid at Anfield, Liverpool was expected to give Ancelotti and his team a tough challenge. And indeed, The Kop did that in the first 14 minutes of the game with two goals from Nunez and Salah.
However, the spotlight for the remainder of the game was dominated by Vinicius and Benzema. Liverpool has many famous and expensive Premier League players in their squad, but they didn’t have a victory. After 90 minutes of play, Liverpool had to swallow a bitter defeat of 2-5 at their own “fortress”.
In fact, in a season where even Anfield is struggling, losing to the Champions League holders is not unexpected. However, the heavy defeat was a surprise even for Liverpool’s board of directors, according to CaughtOffSide.
The defeat to Real Madrid has reportedly left Liverpool’s top brass more determined than ever. Their faith in Jurgen Klopp starts to waver as things seem to be slipping out of his control. Maybe Jurgen Klopp will be the next sacked football manager this season.
As a result, Liverpool has reportedly made contact with Julian Nagelsmann, the current head coach of Bayern Munich, in a surprising move. While there has been no response from Nagelsmann to The Kop’s approach, it appears that the German coach has reasons to leave Alianz Arena, especially since he shares Klopp’s nationality.
Specifically, Nagelsmann has been in charge of the Bavarian giants for 2 years. And not everyone really feels that the 35-year-old new coach deserves his current position. Things are even worse this season as Bayern is increasingly losing its position in the Bundesliga.
Currently, Julian Nagelsmann’s team is still at the top of the German league table. However, Dortmund and Union Berlin have caught up with them in points and only rank 2nd and 3rd due to inferior goal difference. Therefore, it is not unlikely that Bayern may lose their domestic dominance this season.
As for Jurgen Klopp, his number one goal is still to stay with Liverpool. After almost 8 years of loyalty, the fans of this team have a lot of affection for the German coach. However, the former Dortmund manager needs to quickly stabilize his team’s form if he still wants to continue at Anfield.
