    Klopp's Potential Challenge

    After a hectic day of talks, it has been reported that Jurgen Klopp has almost completed his move to Anfield. After the dismissal of Brenden Rodgers, the Liverpool hierarchy have moved quickly to find a suitable replacement. The decision to terminate Rodger's contract comes at a good time. The upcoming international break would give his successor the chance to make the appropriate chances ahead of Liverpool's trip to Spurs. 

    It is no secret that Klopp thinks highly of the Merseyside club. Always complimentary of the history and atmosphere at Anfield, it seems like a good match... on the surface. While many Liverpudlians look to Klopp as the savoir that will restore their former glory, there are many fundamental challenges the successor will have to face.

    Firstly, with the Anfield faithful having been starved of Champions League football recently, consistent top four finished will be expected. However, with more competition than ever for Champions League places, Klopp might struggle. Furthermore, the UEFA points system could potentially allocate our fourth Champions League place to Italy due to recent poor English performances. This would make resurrecting Liverpool's European status even harder in the long run.

    Secondly, the increasingly infamous transfer committee. Whether terms over his authority over transfers is being negotiated cannot be known. It is hard to believe however that someone with the personality of Klopp could be pushed aside in terms of transfers. The ex-manager Rodgers potentially having his passive nature exploited.

    Finally, the restructuring of his squad. Bringing in a manager at this stage of the season makes transfers unavailable until winter. Liverpool fans will be encouraged by Klopp's previous successes with turning a limited squad into a winning team. With Liverpool looking increasingly like a selling club, the successes at Dortmund in a similar situation will show what the German manager is capable of.

    What is often publicised is Klopp's passion. This will always guaranteed to be matched at Merseyside if he ends up being Rodger's successor.
