Liverpool 'make contact' with agents as three Premier League managers tipped to replace Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool 'make contact' with agents as three Premier League managers tipped to replace Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool will lose Jurgen Klopp at the end of the 23/24 season

Liverpool have reportedly made contact with agents as three Premier League managers emerge as candidates to replace Jurgen Klopp.

On Friday morning, Klopp sent shockwaves through the world of football by announcing he would leave Liverpool at the end of the 23/24 season.

Announcing his departure, Klopp said in an emotional video: “I can understand that it’s a shock for a lot of people in this moment, when you hear it for the first time, but obviously I can explain it – or at least try to explain it.

“I love absolutely everything about this club, I love everything about the city, I love everything about our supporters, I love the team, I love the staff. I love everything. But that I still take this decision shows you that I am convinced it is the one I have to take.”

Since the shock announcement, Bayer Leverkusen boss and former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is currently the bookies’ favourite to replace Klopp.

The process to find Klopp’s successor will now be in full flow and according to The Athletic, the Anfield club have already started making contact with agents.

Aside from Alonso, Brentford boss Thomas Frank is said to be admired by the Liverpool hierarchy.

In addition, Brighton and Hove Albion boss Roberto De Zerbi and Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou could also be on the list of potential candidates.

Away from the Premier League, current Germany boss Julian Nagelsmann has also been linked with moving to Anfield on the back of EURO 2024.


However, Klopp has stated that he will not be taking part in the process of choosing his replacement.

He said: “No, why should I? The last thing they need is advice from the old man walking out who tells them: ‘By the way, make sure you bring him in’.

“I will definitely not do that. You know for most of the things I have an opinion, and you will not believe that for most I still didn't say everything and I have no problem with that.”

Klopp added: “I wish for the future of this club the very, very, very best and for now I am still here and can help them to achieve the best possible.”
