Klopp, 48, is the No.1 choice among the club’s hierarchy According to Hamann, the man who likened his football philosophy to heavy metal is the ideal candidate and would be an inspired appointment. “He is the ideal candidate for the job. He is the one I would pick,” said Hamann. “The expectations and the mood couldn’t be any further down than it is at the momident Florentino Pérez is willing to hold fire on the future of coach Zinedine Zidane.It’s been suggested Zidane will be sacked this week if Real, after defeat at Mallorca on Saturday, lose to Galatasaray in thes from AS Monaco.The Portuguese international was not a regular for the Saints under Ralph Hasenhuttl last term.Foot Mercatosays it appears that Soares may still have his work cut out to get a first team chance.The source believes that he could be te Champions League.But AS says Florentient at Anfield so it is a great time to come.

Maybe it should have been done in the summer, but better late than never. is a working class club, a working class town, and you need somebody that the fans take to. It is very important at a club like Liverpool that the fans take to the manager.” Meanwhile Hamann says he believes that the Reds’ transfer committee will NOT be a problem, despite mentions to the contrary. The winner says he believes such a structure is common place in Germany and that Klopp has already worked under a similar regime at his former club. “I think it’s a common theme in Germany” declared Hamann. “In for example he worked with Michael Zorc [sporting director] and Hans-Joachim Watzke [Chief executive]. These three would decide on players between them. “There was a story that the transfer committee could be a stumbling block, but it is exactly the opposite. “He has made it clear in the past that he doesn’t want to speak to agents, he doesn’t want to deal with agents. He wants to concentrate on the football.” Klopp will arrive in England having left Die Borussen in May, following a seven-year spell featuring two Bundesliga titles. The 48-year-old is yet to experience working outside of Germany – having previously spent all his playing and coaching career with Mainz. Yet for Hamann, it is now a perfect time for him to be heading to England and Anfield. “I think its a good time to take over Liverpool, after only one league cup in nine years. “He managed the second biggest club in Germany and transformed them into a very successful club again. “I don’t think he’s got a problem to take on the challenge. He’s been at a working class club before and I think that’s important.” In recent years under the Fenway Sports Group, the Reds have made a noticeable change to their recruitment policy, looking for younger footballers who can grow and mature at the club – while also growing their value. The Reds have a number of promising young players, such as and According to Hamann, youngsters won’t be played for the sake of it – they’ll have to earn their spurs. “He got quite a few players involved from the youth team at Dortmund; the left back, Marcel Schmelzer, then Erik Durm, and he went and ended up being a World Cup winner.
