Liverpool news and transfers LIVE - Thiago 'talks', Willian claim, Ben White message

Klopp inspiration’s next move may create new Liverpool transfer possibilities

Amidst the celebrations of Liverpool’s first Premier League title triumph, the FA Cup final, and then more recently the Champions League’s return and the Reds signing Kostas Tsimikas, Ralf Rangnick leaving his position at RB Leipzig was somewhat overshadowed.

Jurgen Klopp’s fellow countryman was thought to be heading to AC Milan, then that deal broke down and he decided to stay at Leipzig. Eight days later, he had u-turned again and resigned.

Rangnick departed RB Leipzig just a fortnight ago, despite strong interest in him from Milan, who looked set to install him in a joint manager and sporting director role.

After that move collapsed, Rangnick had agreed a new two-year deal with Leipzig, only to then quit a few days later. His next move is still unclear – but it will certainly be worth noting for Liverpool fans.

On a special podcast looking into the relationship between the Red Bull clubs and Liverpool FC, Guido Schaefer, a former teammate of Klopp at Mainz in the 1990s and is now a journalist covering Leipzig, explained the influence that Rangnick has had on the Reds.
