Pressure Increases On Rodgers As Didi Hamann Gets Liverpool Fans Excited

Five games into the new season and Brendan Rodgers sits atop the table that everyone seems to enjoy mentioning around this time every year. The managerial sack race. Most bookies have the Liverpool boss at around 6/4 to be out the door before anyone else this season ahead of the likes of Dick Advocaat and Jose Mourinho, neither of whom are having a great time of things themselves.


Perhaps the reason Rodgers is sitting so high in the market is because there's one man who everyone seems to agree would be the perfect fit for Liverpool and he just so happens to be completely free to take up the job. Every time Liverpool drop points this season, Jurgen Klopp's name is inevitably going to be thrown around as if he's the only fix for whatever's wrong at Anfield. And maybe he is.

Liverpool have looked listless so far this season with Philippe Coutinho the only real bright spot. Dejan Lovren somehow remains first choice and Christian Benteke is not being used effectively, a situation that almost everyone saw coming. All of that has led to Rodgers feeling the weight of expectation like never before and it certainly doesn't help him when the likes of Didi Hamann, speaking to Sky Germany, is bigging up the looming shadow of Klopp.

The pressure in Liverpool gets bigger. The fans are on the barricades. But the coach is backed by the club, and anyway the question is - would Klopp move there during the season?

Had they asked before the season, I am 99 per cent sure that he would have joined them. Many people say that he will take over Bayern on July 1, 2016, but I don't know whether he's a fit there. He'd be a great fit at Liverpool.

Whether Klopp fancies it or not, with things going the way they are it's seems increasingly unlikely that Rodgers will finish out the season.
