Some Liverpool fans are fearing the worst as Carlo Ancelotti’s future at Bayern Munich hangs in the balance

Maybe they're reading a bit too much into this...


Bayern Munich looked incredibly unBayern Munichy on Wednesday night.

The five-time European champions went down 3-0 to Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes, a result which was enough for CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge to promise ‘consequences’.

Many have interpreted Rummenigge’s comments as being a suggestion that Carlo Ancelotti’s time as their manager may be coming to an end in the very near future.

German newspaper Bild has gone one stage further, looking at who might replace the Italian as Bayern’s manager. Claiming that the era of the Bavarian giants’ 2013 Treble winners is now over, they suggest that the man to take them back to the top is Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp.

It isn’t just the German media making this link, either. Some Liverpool supporters have also considered the possibility that Bayern might come knocking for their manager – some even going as far as suggesting it might see Ancelotti replace him at Anfield…

Perhaps it’s an obvious link to make, but if Ancelotti is given the boot in the near future, it’s safe to assume it won’t just be the German media and a few Liverpool fans on Twitter that are talking about Klopp joining the Bundesliga champions.

In fact, some Liverpool fans have even dared to discuss who else might be in the frame to replace Klopp at Anfield…

Potentially (but probably not) an interesting time ahead for Liverpool…
