Liverpool are looking for a manager to take over from Jürgen Klopp, who has announced his departure from the club immediately after the end of the current campaign.

The team administrators know that the search for the successor of the German coach will not be easy despite the presence of several names in the European scene such as Roberto de Zerbi, Thomas Tuchel and Xabi Alonso, but team officials know that whoever succeeds the German must have the full approval of all administrators and must be able to communicate well with the fans and be consistent with the team’s spirit.

Spaniard Xabi Alonso remains the clear favourite for the job and is clearly ahead of all the other contenders as he knows the team and how not, having played there from 2004-2009, and is having a historic season with Bayer Leverkusen, who lead the Bundesliga with 58 points, eight points ahead of nearest rivals – Bayern Munich – and are unbeaten after 22 rounds of the league.

The main question remains whether the new coach of the Reds is able to achieve what Jürgen Klopp achieved, who restored the team’s prestige, especially at the European level, who led him to win the Champions League in 2019 and created a strong and cohesive team capable of competing for all tournaments.
