Just when you thought Liverpool supporters could not want Jurgen Klopp as their manager any more, here is a video which has emerged of the German touching the hallowed 'This Is Anfield' sign at their famous stadium (watch below).

The German is the favourite to replace Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked yesterday, with both the fans and the bookies.

Klopp touched the Anfield sign last year, before his Borussia Dortmund side were thrashed 4-0 by the Reds in a friendly thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge, Dejan Lovren, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson.


The 48-year-old Klopp has been out of work since resigning from his post at Borussia Dortmund in May having won the Bundesliga twice in his seven years at the club.

Liverpool's owners have revealed that the search is "underway" to find Rodgers' successor.

In a joint Fenway Sports Group statement, Principal Owner John W Henry, Chairman Tom Werner and President Mike Gordon said:

“We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Brendan Rodgers for the significant contribution he has made to the club and express our gratitude for his hard work and commitment.

“All of us have experienced some wonderful moments with Brendan as manager and we are confident he will enjoy a long career in the game.

“Although this has been a difficult decision, we believe it provides us with the best opportunity for success on the pitch. Ambition and winning are at the heart of what we want to bring to Liverpool and we believe this change gives us the best opportunity to deliver it.

“The search for a new manager is underway and we hope to make an appointment in a decisive and timely manner.”
