Klopp IN Rodgers OUT

Liverpool may be able to hold talks with Jurgen Klopp in November, according to German football expert Raphael Honigstein

The Anfield club could well get the chance to approach the former Borussia Dortmund manager later this year, says Honigstein.

Klopp has always been a long-term target for the Reds, who have made numerous attempts to land him in the past.

However, following Liverpool’s poor start to the season, a number of fans have called for him to be brought in to replace Brendan Rodgers immediately.

Honigstein told The Guardian’s Football Weekly podcast: It’s no secret by now that Liverpool have tried twice to get Klopp to take over,”

“They didn’t go for him in the summer when he was clearly available, so they stuck with Brendan Rodgers.

“I believe—and I have to say this isn’t backed up by any hard facts—but there’s a sense from talking to one or two people that maybe there’s an opportunity to sit down and discuss things going forward maybe in November.

“I’m not sure if that’s directly related to what Liverpool are doing this season, or maybe it’s for next season, or maybe it’s just exploratory talks.”

Norwich hold on for point at Anfield

Substitute Danny Ings injected some excitement into the game after 48 minutes with his first goal for the club.

However, Norwich captain Russell Martin levelled the scores 12 minutes later and played valiantly along with the rest of his side to earn a hard-fought point at Anfield.

One of the few positives to take from the game, as far as Rodgers was concerned, was the return of striker Daniel Sturridge.

The 26-year-old’s last appearance for Liverpool came in a 4-1 loss against Arsenal at the Emirates on the 4th April.

Rodgers will be keen to see an improvement from his players, when they host League Two side Carlisle on Wednesday in the third round of the League Cup.
