Former Liverpool defender suggests name for ideal replacement of Jurgen Klopp

Ange Postecoglou and Roberto De Zerbi are other options to replace Jurgen Klopp.

Former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson suggests the name of the current national team manager for the replacement of Jurgen Klopp. He feels England manager Gareth Southgate should replace the German coach ahead of the season 2024/25.

Two months back, Jurgen Klopp made a shock announcement that he will leave the club at the end of the season. Liverpool are looking at potential options to try at Anfield.

Former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is supposed to take the role after his impressive show at Bayer Leverkusen. However, Liverpool may miss out due to his interest in Bayern. Due to the departure of Thomas Tuchel in the summer, Bayern need someone like Alonso to chase European glory.

Liverpool are also considering Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou and Brighton’s Roberto De Zerbi. Postecoglou may not join but there is a thin chance to pick out Roberto De Zerbi who is planning to leave this summer.

As per ex-Liverpool defender Glen Johnson, Liverpool should try England manager Southgate who has a contract with the Three Lions. He helped England to play the Euro 2020 final three years back. His side is doing great and they are favourites to win the title at Euro this summer.

During a recent interview with Betfred, Glen Johnson said: “It’s an awkward one to talk about because you don’t want to go into a major tournament speculating about whether England’s manager is going elsewhere.”

“If he’s available in the summer, then you’ve got to look at all the options. He’s done a brilliant job with England, so there’s no reason why he can’t be successful with a club like Liverpool as he’d be dealing with a similar standard of players.”

“You’d need to have the chat because you can’t just dismiss him if he’s available.”
