Jurgen Klopp odds-on favourite to be next Prem manager to leave after Liverpool’s defeat to Leicester

JURGEN KLOPP is odds-on favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job after Liverpool’s loss at Leicester.

The Reds lost their third league game on the bounce at the King Power which has led bookies to cut odds on the legendary German leaving Anfield.

Coral had Klopp at 10/1 before the 3-1 loss to Brendan Rodgers’ side – the German’s 300th in charge of Liverpool.

But after James Maddison, Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes cancelled out Mo Salah’s opener, Betfair have dropped the odds to 4/7.

There is no suggestion the Reds are planning on sacking their iconic boss.

And any departure would almost certainly be down to the 53-year-old deciding to walk away.

Football fans have compared the Reds’ current situation with that of Dortmund’s during Klopp’s last season in charge there.

After an under-par start to 2014-15, Klopp announced in April he was leaving the Bundesliga giants at the end of the campaign.

After the Foxes defeat, Klopp admitted the title race is over as his team fell 13 points behind leader Manchester City who also have a game in hand.

He said: “I don’t think we can close that gap this year, to be honest.”


Next Prem manager to leave odds

Betfair are offering the below odds on the next Premier League manager to leave their job

Jurgen Klopp 4/7

Roy Hodgson 4/1

Jose Mourinho 5/1

Steve Bruce 8/1

Scott Parker 10/1

Sam Allardyce 12/1

Asked if the title race was now over for his reigning champs, he added: “Yes, I can’t believe it but yes.”

Klopp was furious with VAR Stuart Attwell over Maddison’s free-kick equaliser, claiming the official paused the replay at the wrong moment and his goal should have been ruled out for offside.

The official VAR picture showed Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino’s heel playing everyone onside.

But Klopp fumed: “VAR should be completely objective but it’s not, because somebody has to make a decision whether it’s offside or not and which is the moment when we judge the offside.

“I’ve seen the replay plenty of times and Maddison didn’t even touch the ball when Stuart Attwell judged the situation.”
