Liverpool in chase for ex-Dortmund boss Klopp, former Real Madrid manager Ancelotti

Liverpool have their sights set on immediately replacing Brendan Rodgers as manager.

The Reds sacked the Northern Irishman on Sunday following their 1-1 draw with Everton in the Merseyside derby and are now looking to bring in a big-name manager to help guide the club out of their stage of mediocrity.

German tactician Jurgen Klopp is the first name to be linked with the role, after emerging as a target for the Anfield outfit in recent times, while Carlo Ancelotti is also believed to be an option.

According to Sky Sports, Fenway Sports Group have no intention of employing a caretaker boss and would rather fill the vacancy with an experienced coach who has already achieved success on the big stage.

Two-time Bundesliga winner Klopp, formerly of Borussia Dortmund, is the number one mark for the Reds while 56-year-old Italian Ancelotti, who won the 2010 Premier League title and FA Cup at Chelsea, is being considered after leaving Real Madrid last summer.
