Cricies at Anfield for klopp replacement



And Pochettino also worked wonders earlier in his career at Southampton and Espanyol.

Liverpool are likely to consider Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel to replace Jurgen Klopp

Luis Enrique

Many doubted that Luis Enrique was the right person to lead Barcelona when he landed the job in 2014. But then the Spaniard silenced his critics by guiding the club to a famous hat-trick, just like his former team-mate and close friend Pep Guardiola before him.

Enrique failed to win with Spain at the last World Cup in Qatar as the 2010 champions were knocked out by Morocco in the round of 16.

But that doesn’t change the fact that the 52-year-old is a serial winner and one of the best managers in the world.

Liverpool would have carte blanche for Enrique, although a lack of Premier League experience could work against him should they seek direction.

Liverpool would be wise to consider Luis Enrique if Jurgen Klopp ends up leaving.

Thomas Tuché

Like Enrique and Pochettino, Thomas Tuchel is there for the recording. And he actually followed a similar path to Klopp, coaching German sides Mainz and Borussia Dortmund early in his career.

Tuchel doesn’t play the same hypnotic football as his compatriot, which makes him difficult for some players to handle.

Yet he is still a top manager and although he was sacked by Chelsea in September, he was still a success story at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel would come with risks and baggage, but his stock has probably soared in the short time since he left West London, given his old team’s struggles under Graham Potter.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has been tipped to replace Jurgen Klopp in the past

Stephen Gerardo

Obviously Steven Gerrard has to make the list. Admittedly, he was impressed with Aston Villa, which led to his sacking earlier this season.
But Gerrard has worked wonders at Rangers and should enter the conversation as a Liverpool legend.

What Liverpool need to watch out for, however, is that sentiment is clouding their vision.
Both Manchester United and Chelsea have chosen club icons in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard as managers, but neither have lived up to expectations at their respective clubs.
