Liverpool could be on the verge of hearing the news they’ve all been dreading after it emerged that Jurgen Klopp is one of the names in the frame for the Paris Saint-Germain managerial post, according to a report.
Le Parisien states that Zinedine Zidane is the favourite to land the job on a list which also includes Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte.
Klopp has become a fan favourite on Merseyside, capturing the hearts of the Reds faithful with his outlandish mannerisms and passion for the game.
And it would seem that that hasn’t gone unnoticed in the French capital either, as Klopp features on a nine-man list of names who could replace Unai Emery who is expected to be shown the exit door this summer.
PSG have money to burn with hugely wealthy Qatari owners who have already invested $1billion.
Football Insider verdict:
Frankly can’t see this one happening. Klopp loves the English game and the atmosphere and challenges which each game poses – unless Ligue 1 suddenly becomes a superpower of world football, then he will know he can not get that in Paris. Yes, the appeal of having endless finances would be an attractive prospect but at Anfield, there is a real sense that the German is building something special. Year on year the club have improved under the former Borussia Dortmund coach and they are becoming a force to be reckoned with.
