Garth Crooks believes Liverpool should part ways with Jurgen Klopp and hire Carlo Ancelotti, if they have serious ambitions of winning the Premier League title in the near future.

The former Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United man blasted Klopp’s defensive woes as ‘seriously embarrassing’ and is convinced his inability to deal with the problem must affect the star players on the team.

Klopp’s side were hammered 4-1 by Spurs at Wembley as Liverpool moved to a -2 goal difference after nine games in the Premier League, while sitting 12 points behind leaders Manchester City in ninth place.

Meanwhile, Ancelotti is out of work having been let go by Bayern Munich after a slow start to the season but he has delivered league titles with Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern, AC Milan and Roma, as well as winning the Champions League with Real Madrid and Milan.
