Klopp to Barcelona? Bookies don’t think Liverpool boss is in the running

| 20.02.2017

Barcelona look set to bring a new manager to the Nou Camp this summer following a mediocre campaign at best under Luis Enrique. But it won’t be Jurgen Klopp, according to the latest odds. 

Reports over the weekend suggested the Liverpool boss could be La Liga bound, although at 10/1, our odds compilers reckon there are plenty of names ahead of Klopp in this market.

In fact, it’s actually more likely that another Merseyside manager will take over from Enrique, with 13/2 on offer for Ronald Koeman to return to the Catalan giants after spending six years there as a player.

And on the subject of returns, it’s unlikely Pep Guardiola will be teaming up with Lionel Messi and co any time soon, despite the Argentine apparently wanting his former manager back.

Instead, Sevilla’s Jorge Sampaoli and Athletic Bilbao’s Ernesto Valverde lead the way at 7/2.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Mauricio Pochettino remains an 8/1 shot alongside Germany gaffer Joachim Low, while 10/1 is a price Klopp shares with Thomas Tuchel of Borussia Dortmund and former Paris Saint-Germain manager Laurent Blanc respectively.

A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “There’s a whole host of names in the running for the expected Nou Camp vacancy. But the latest odds are suggesting Barca won’t be trading tiki-taka for Gegenpressing any time soon.”
