Klopp negotiating with Liverpool?

Published:Sunday | September 27, 2015 | 12:00 AM

Ex-Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has told Liverpool he would gladly take the Anfield job - but only on his own terms.

The 48-year-old former Dortmund boss is on sabbatical after stepping down from his job in Germany last season.

He has made it clear he would happily work for the five-time European champions as long as he is the unanimous choice to do so and the club also scraps their transfer committee, according to the British tabloid the Daily Mail.

Klopp is regarded alongside Carlo Ancelotti as prime candidates to replace Brendan Rodgers should owner John W Henry and the Fenway Sports Group decide to make a change.

However, Rodgers' inability to dictate his own transfer policy is something Klopp would not tolerate even if he does want to manage one of Europe's top clubs.

Having taken Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles and a Champions League final, Klopp is in a strong negotiating position and could extend his break until the summer when Pep Guardiola leaves Bayern Munich.
