The unproven but exciting manager has a huge task ahead of him, but he is ready to deliver. Lijnders Inherits Klopp’s Throne at Liverpool – New Era Begins with ‘Two-Year’ Deal”.


Xabi Alonso emerges as the leading contender among bookmakers to step into Jurgen Klopp’s shoes as the next manager of Liverpool. However, insiders suggest that the players within the club prefer to see Pep Lijnders, Klopp’s current assistant, take on the role.

Following Klopp’s announcement in January about his impending departure from Anfield after eight successful seasons, speculation has been rife regarding his successor. Alongside Alonso, other names in the running include Roberto De Zerbi, Ruben Amorim, and Julian Nagelsmann. Alonso’s candidacy gains momentum after guiding Bayer Leverkusen to the summit of the Bundesliga, an impressive feat with a 10-point lead over perennial champions Bayern Munich.

Yet, it seems the players’ allegiance lies with Lijnders, as noted by Alan Brazil and former Liverpool striker Dean Saunders. Both suggest that Lijnders, Klopp’s current assistant, is the preferred choice among the squad members due to his intimate understanding of the club’s ethos and operations.

Lijnders has been an integral part of Klopp’s coaching staff since 2018, following a previous stint under Brendan Rodgers in the same capacity. His experience includes a brief managerial spell at NEC in the Netherlands, sandwiched between his two tenures at Anfield.

While Alonso remains a frontrunner for the position, he faces competition from other potential suitors, with Bayern Munich reportedly interested, especially given Thomas Tuchel’s impending departure from the Allianz Arena. Meanwhile, Nagelsmann, currently managing Bayern Munich, hints at his availability for a new challenge before Euro 2024.

With Klopp expected to transition to the role of Germany’s national team manager after Euro 2024, Nagelsmann expresses openness to finalizing terms with a new club before the tournament commences. This statement suggests that he may be eager to secure his next managerial position sooner rather than later, presenting an intriguing option for Liverpool’s hierarchy to consider.
