Danny Murphy: Why Liverpool must SNUB Jurgen Klopp and go for Carlo Ancelotti

first_imgDanny Murphy has warned Liverpool’s owners appointing Jurgen Klopp as the club’s new manager would be a ‘big, big risk’ – and has urged them to go for Carlo Ancelotti.Klopp is understood to be the number one choice to take charge at Anfield following the sacking of Brendan Rodgers.The charismatic German would be a popular choice among the Reds faithful having twice won the Bundesliga during an impressive seven-year spell at Borussia Dortmund.But Murphy has doubts about the impact he would have in the Premier League and believes the Fenway Sports Group – the American investment firm that runs the club – should opt for the experience of Ancelotti.The Italian, who left Real Madrid in the summer, led Chelsea to title glory during his previous Premier League spell and has three Champions League successes on a glittering CV.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Murphy said: “Reading the CVs and what they have done and where they have done it and how many times they have done it, it is a no-brainer really.“You can’t guarantee success with either guy because you are competing with Manchester City, United, Chelsea and Arsenal. There is no guarantee that any manager will walk through the door at Anfield, turn it around and make it successful. But what you can do is take the element of risk out of it by looking at a manager that has been there and done it.“Ancelotti has done it as a player, he has done it as a coach, and he has done it in different countries. And, ultimately, he has done it here already with Chelsea. He has won the league here, he has won the [FA] Cup here, so he knows this league. That in itself gives him a headstart on Klopp.“He is not as erratic, he is much calmer, he has dealt with big players for years. Klopp has only had success with one club and for a minimal time and, if you look at how it ended at Dortmund, they were in the relegation zone and he couldn’t get a tune out of his players.”last_img read more

Real Madrid book Champions League final place with Juventus

first_img Real Madrid will head to Cardiff on June 3 1 Karim Benzema’s brilliance booked Real Madrid a place back in the UEFA Champions League final after the holders survived an early scare to see off city rivals Atletico 2-1 at the Vicente Calderon.Early goals from Saul and Antoine Griezmann gave Diego Simeone’s men realistic hope of hauling back a 3-0 first-leg deficit before a goal from Isco late in the first half effectively ended the contest.And it was Frenchman Benzema who shone brightest as Real ultimately cruised to a 4-2 aggregate win, setting up Isco’s effort and having a major impact on a much more consistent second-half showing from his side.The hosts had been indebted to goalkeeper Jan Oblak for keeping their slim hopes alive in the early stages when the Czech made a brilliant one-handed save to deny Casemiro.But Simeone’s men would capitalise on their lucky escape and pulled their first goal back after 12 minutes when Saul rose highest in the box to power home from a Koke corner.The goal raised hopes of a sensational comeback and they were further realised four minutes later when Atletico reduced their aggregate deficit to a single goal.Sweeping irresistibly forward, Fernando Torres was fouled by Raphael Varane in the box and Griezmann calmly slotted the resulting penalty past Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas.Simeone’s intentions were clear on the sidelines as he urged his team and supporters on, but Real drew on all of their Champions League experience to weather the storm and limit the damage from the early spell of pressure.And the visitors grabbed what would prove to be a crucial goal three minutes before the break when Isco fired home after a moment of magic from Benzema tight on the left flank.Benzema wriggled out of a seemingly impossible situation surrounded by three Atletico defenders and crossed for Toni Kroos, whose initial effort was blocked by Oblak before Isco shot home the rebound.The goal took the sting out of Atletico who, from the cusp of an improbable leveller, suddenly found themselves needing to score five times on the night to give themselves a chance to advance.Real started the second period on top, with Ronaldo’s free-kick from a tight angle well saved by Oblak, but Atletico were in no mood to give up as Griezmann looped a free-kick just over the crossbar.Kevin Gameiro also should have done better on the end of a swift Atletico counter-attack but Cristiano Ronaldo in particular was growing in prominence and was unlucky to have a 69th-minute effort incorrectly ruled out for offside.Griezmann forced a fine save out of Navas while the brilliant Benzema saw a diving header flash inches wide as the rain poured down and Real played out the final quarter of an hour to ease into a final place.last_img read more

Watford among clubs chasing Juventus goalkeeper
