Liverpool fans were left fuming last night as their side suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat at the hands of title rivals Manchester City, leaving their hopes of retaining the Premier League title hanging by a thread – and one distraught Liverpool fan sent out a plea for Rangers boss Steven Gerrard to return to Anfield.
The Reds are ten points off the top of the table, having played a game more than Pep Guardiola’s City and some fans think the German’s time on Merseyside should come to an end, just months after guiding them to their first title in a generation.
Gerrard sits on the brink of ending Rangers’ own lengthy wait to bring the title home and Liverpool-supporting TalkSPORT listener David wants the iconic former Anfield captain to return and replace Klopp.
“I want Jurgen Klopp to leave,” David pleaded [TalkSPORT].
“Do you remember with Brendan Rodgers when we lost 6-1 away to Stoke City? Liverpool this season have had two terrible defeats – the 7-2 to Aston Villa and now this 4-1 to City.
“They even lost to Brighton and Burnley at home. This is a crisis but I don’t think Jurgen Klopp can solve it.”
A return to Liverpool seems like a matter of time Gerrard and David thinks he would brink leadership back to the Premier League champions – although it doesn’t seem likely Klopp will move any time soon.
“I want Gerrard because Gerrard has won the league with Rangers I’d get him,” David added.
“Gerrard would get some mentality back to the team. Gerrard is a leader. We haven’t got a leader on the pitch.”
Meanwhile, a 20-year-old Scotland youth international has been spotted in Rangers first-team training amid uncertainty regarding his loan spell.
