Liverpool are lucky. We have the best manager in world football at the helm. Kopites absolutely adore Jürgen Klopp, the thought of the day he leaves is painful. The day will come eventually. Sir Kenny Dalglish believes Steven Gerrard will be a contender to be the next Liverpool manager.
Jürgen Klopp tenure and future
Few managers can claim to have transformed a club as much as Jürgen Klopp has transformed Liverpool.
The German was installed as manager in 2015 and he told us his mission was to turn doubters into believers.
Since then he’s been at the centre of a top to bottom revamp of the club.
Recruitment has been revolutionised and with it has come success on the pitch.
Kenny Dalglish on Steven Gerrard
The boss’ contract expires in 2024.
Fans are hopeful that he’ll sign another extension but history shows us that he is unlikely to do so.
Just who will take on the role when the German departs is anybody’s guess.
Pep Lijnders is considered a front runner with continuity in mind.
Julian Nagelsmann is another interesting proposition.
Of course there’s no getting around Captain Fantastic who is currently enjoying great success north of the border.
Sir Kenny Dalglish has tipped Steven Gerrard for the Liverpool job in future, telling the BBC:
“When it becomes available I’m sure Steven would be right up there in the contenders. He has done absolutely fantastic at Ibrox.”
What RTK has to say
Taking over after Jürgen Klopp is going to be an almighty task.
Sir Kenny Dalglish tipping Steven Gerrard for the Liverpool job comes as no surprise given the Scouser’s success at Rangers.
However, there is always the worry of him doing his legacy and reputation damage.
It would be a huge risk to come back for another spell. If it goes well, though. Wow. We’d get to fall in love with Stevie G all over again.
