Struggling Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been tipped to join a bitter Premier League rival, if FSG decide to call time on his hugely successful Anfield tenure.
The Anfield outfit are having a disastrous domestic campaign, currently sitting 10th in the table and are a whopping 11 points off the Champions League places as it stands.
Saturday’s embarrassing 3-0 loss at Wolves made it just one win in their last seven games in all competitions. During that time they have also lost to Brighton twice and Brentford, while this weekend sees the small matter of a Merseyside derby clash with a rejuvenated Everton.
Klopp’s men are also out of both cups, although they do face Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League.
But with the pressure growing on the German, former Reds striker Stan Collymore fears the worst.
However, he also believes that should Klopp go then Chelsea will almost certainly make a move, with their own manager Graham Potter also currently in the firing line.
The Blues have troubles of their own, as they sit a place above Liverpool. However, they are trying to buy their way back up the table in comparison to the Reds’ more stringent approach during the January window.
And Collymore is in no doubt that Klopp would be a success at Stamford Bridge.
He told Caught Offside: “The reality is, if FSG sack Klopp, there is no one else out there better equipped to do a better job.
“So anyone calling for him to go should be careful what they wish for because I’m certain that if he suddenly became available, you’d have Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, PSG and even Chelsea all lining up.”
Klopp deserves chance to turn Liverpool around.
Despite those comments, Collymore still believes Klopp deserves more time to get things back on track.
He added: “I still don’t think Jurgen Klopp should be facing the sack at Liverpool. I know they’re having an awful season but we need to look further back than just the past six months.
“Remember where Liverpool were when he came in – they were a real mess!
“They had a below-average squad, were barely competitive and couldn’t attract top players.
“Klopp single-handedly changed all of that and went on to win every trophy possible along the way, and he didn’t just turn them into a winning side, he completely revolutionised their style of play.”
