Jurgen Klopp is reportedly ready to end his sabbatical from football – but the German hasn’t been approached by Liverpool, according to Sky Sports.
Klopp ended a trophy-laden seven-year spell with Borussia Dortmund in May earlier this year, saying that he wished to take a year out of a professional football career that stretches as far back as his playing days in 1990.
The German has fluttered his eyelashes in Liverpool’s direction pretty much ever since, with current Reds boss Brendan Rodgers under immense pressure at Anfield.
Liverpool needed a penalty shootout to overcome League Two Carlisle in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday, while the Reds sit 13th in the Premier League table after an inauspicious opening six games.
The club moved to dismiss claims that they had approached Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti with a view to replacing Rodgers, but Klopp remains one of the favourites to replace Rodgers if he leaves.
Sky Sports report that while Klopp is interested in working in the Premier League and is open to ending his sabbatical in order to do so, Liverpool have still not approached him.
