Gerrard Lined Up As Klopp Replacement At Liverpool 

Gerrard Lined Up As Klopp Replacement At Liverpool 

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is being lined up to replace Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool boss with increasing doubts over the German’s long-term Anfield future.

There is a growing belief that Klopp will say yes to the chance of succeeding Joachim Low as Germany’s head coach.

Klopp is the outstanding candidate as far as the German Football Association (DFB) is concerned and they will make their approach once Low’s own future is sealed.

Low has been in sole charge since 2006, leading his country to success in the 2014 World Cup but enduring a nightmare 2018 World Cup and UEFA Nations League.

Despite calls for his sacking he has remained in charge with his contract encompassing this summer’s European Championship finals and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

It’s accepted that Low wouldn’t be able to survive an underwhelming Euro campaign which would prompt an earlier than expected approach for Klopp.

And according to a well placed Liverpool source it would be one Klopp would find difficult to resist even though he is enjoying his time on Merseyside.

It’s why Liverpool’s principal owner John W. Henry and chairman Tom Werner have been keeping a close eye on Gerrard’s work at Rangers.

And with the Reds about to land the Scottish Premiership, it’s helped rubber stamp their belief that Gerrard – along with his Ibrox assistant and fellow ex-Anfield star Gary McAllister – have the credentials to succeed Klopp.

    Well if that will be the case, I’ll saywi it’s cool so long as it’s a win – win situation

    Hope Gerrard can up his game as coach . Perhaps Joe Aribo could be signed by Gerrard on a long run.
