Liverpool may have given a less than subtle clue as to the identity of their new manager after publishing a rumour on their website that links them with former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp not 24 hours after giving Brendan Rodgers the boot, the Metro reports.
The German tactician is the favourite to take over the Anfield hot seat after Rodgers was relieved of his duties this weekend following the 1-1 draw with cross city rivals Everton on Sunday.
The Metro reports that Rodgers spent over £300m on new players during his time in charge, but failed to bring in a single trophy.
Liverpool run a rumours page on their website, and picked up on a link from the BBC’s football gossip page that tips Klopp to take over, however, the manager’s representatives are yet to comment on the story.
The club have said that they are “underway” in their process to find a replacement for Rodgers, but judging by this they may already be trying to tell us something.
