‘2 Names I’m Very Happy To See’ ‘So No Gerrard’ Liverpool Fans React As James Pearce Suggests Two Candidates Who Could Succeed Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp only signed a new contract back in December, keeping him at Anfield until 2024, but there still remains a debate over who will succeed the German in the long term.

Steven Gerrard would be a favourite among many fans but when asked the question, reliable journalist James Pearce suggested that assistant manager Pep Lijnders and RB Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann would be his two standout candidates.

Supporters on Twitter were mostly behind Pearce’s opinion on Klopp’s successor:

No doubt that Gerrard’s name will be mentioned when Klopp eventually decides to leave the Reds but his two-year stint in charge of Rangers has raised more questions than answers.

The 39-year-old has failed to win a trophy in either season at Ibrox and considering the Old Firm’s strength, there are some who believe he has already failed in Scotland.

Klopp’s contract has over four years to run, though, and a lot can happen in football in the intervening period.
