Liverpool manager betting: Klopp 11/4 to go this season
Liverpool manager betting news and odds
Coral has slashed the odds to 11/4 (from 6/1) on Jurgen Klopp leaving Liverpool before the final game of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
The Reds continued their dismal start to the season with a 4-1 defeat against Napoli in the Champions League.
That compounded their poor results in the early weeks of the new Premier League campaign and has prompted Coral to drastically change the Liverpool manager betting.
Coral’s John Hill said: “As we have seen at Chelsea, the big clubs are not afraid to change their manager when they hit a slump. After an embarrassing defeat in Naples, we have slashed the odds on Jurgen Klopp leaving Liverpool before the end of the season.”
Having won just two of their opening six league matches, the Reds kicked off their Champions League quest in southern Italy just 102 days from losing last season’s final to Real Madrid.
The trip to southern Italy always looked like the toughest test of a group that also includes Ajax and Rangers, but few could have foreseen the error-strewn display that would unfold at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Piotr Zielinski, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and substitute Giovanni Simeone scored in a first half that Liverpool were fortunate to end only three goals behind.
Victor Osimhen had seen a first-half penalty saved shortly before Virgil van Dijk denied Khvicha Kvaratskhelia on the line, with Zielinski scoring again at the start of a second half. Luis Diaz responded soon after but it was little consolation for the visitors.
Klopp went over to Liverpool’s travelling fans to apologise following a “very disappointing night”.
The Reds will be hoping their stuttering start to the campaign has bottomed out with a loss that even led to a question as to whether he worried about his future given Thomas Tuchel’s sacking by Chelsea earlier in the day.
"Teams go through tough spells and we're in that at this moment"

He replied after the Group A opener: “Not really but who knows? The difference obviously (is) they are different kind of owners.
“Our owners are rather calm and expect me to sort the situation and not think that someone else should sort it. That’s how they always saw it and on the day when they change their thoughts then they might tell me.”
