Rio Ferdinand has appeared to question whether Jurgen Klopp will be able to revive Liverpool.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager is the clear favourite to fill the vacant Liverpool role after the Reds sacked Brendan Rodgers following a 1-1 draw with Everton in the Merseyside derby on Sunday.

Klopp, who quit as Borussia Dortmund boss in the summer, has so far remained tight-lipped on the prospect of taking over the reins at the five-time European champions.

However, former Manchester United defender Ferdinand appears unsure whether the two-time Bundesliga winner can restore Liverpool to their former glory.

Klopp took Dortmund to sixth in his first season, led them into the Europa League the next year and then, with a squad full of exciting young talent, oversaw league title wins in 2010/11 and 2011/12, adding the German Cup in the latter campaign.

Earned even greater admiration in the 2012/13 season as he steered Dortmund all the way to the UEFA Champions League final at Wembley, where they lost to Bayern München. Dortmund reached another domestic cup final in 2014, but again came up short against Bayern.
