Jurgen Klopp to leave Liverpool odds slashed by bookmakers after latest defeat

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is having a torrid time this season at Anfield.

And their latest setback suffering defeat to top-four rivals Leicester has left the reigning champions in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification altogether.

The Reds without Klopp is unthinkable these days, but the more the Merseysiders continue to struggle, the more possible a departure for the German becomes.

The German has done incredible work in his five-and-a-half-years with Liverpool.

However, in the wake of a sixth Premier League defeat of the season, odds with the bookies on Klopp leaving have been slashed.

It would certainly be a shock to see Klopp leave this year, let alone now mid-season.

Yet bookmakers Coral have cut their price on the 53-year-old becoming the next Premier League manager to leave their post down from 10-1 to just 4-1.

A Coral spokesperson said: “This is proving to be a difficult period for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp.

“And after the German conceded his side's title defence was over, he has had his odds slashed by more than half in the next Premier League manager to leave market.”

Only Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson, who had an unsuccessful spell at Liverpool a decade ago, and Tottenham’s Jose Mourinho have shorter odds than Klopp now.

Both managers also suffered defeats in the Premier League on Saturday.
