Plan B.. Liverpool identifies a new name to succeed Klopp

The Sun newspaper reported that Liverpool’s position remains the same, that Xabi Alonso is the ideal choice to succeed Jurgen Klopp as coach of the team next season.

The German coach had announced his departure at the end of this season. The search for his successor is still ongoing. Alonso tops the options available on the Reds management table.

But it seems that hiring the Spanish coach will not be easy. There is a possibility that he will prefer to stay with Bayer Leverkusen for another year, Or he would prefer to move to Bayern Munich, which is also targeting to sign him.

For this reason, the Liverpool administration began developing an alternative plan. She is the current German national team coach, Julian Nagelsmann.

The former Bayern Munich coach will expire his contract with Germany at the end of Euro 2024, and it is unlikely that he will continue to manage the German club, as he will prefer to coach one of the clubs in the next period of his career.

Liverpool officials believe that Nagelsmann has everything it takes to follow in Klopp’s footsteps at Anfield. The club will move to sign him if negotiations with Alonso fail.

It is noteworthy that Nagelsmann was suddenly dismissed from coaching at Bayern Munich in March 2023. The German League title with Bayern and the two Super Cups remain the result of what he won during his coaching career, which extends from 2016.
