Jurgen Klopp’s legendary status at Anfield will never be in question but, as painful as it might be to most Reds, there will be a time when he jumps or is pushed.


Klopp likes to take his future into his own hands and effectively resigned from his last two roles at Borussia Dortmund and Mainz. While it seems unlikely he will be given the sack by the Kop board, Klopp has had a tough start to the 2022/23 season.

So, who is in line to replace the German should his hot seat become available? Paddy’s trusty traders are on hand to show you where the money is going right now with our live betting banners.

Pep Lijnders

Stop the press! Pep could be in pole position to replace Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool. Oh, not that Pep. Pep Lijnders. Klopp’s assistant at Anfield has been high on this list of replacements for a long time.

Steven Gerrard

It would just be romance. Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard pulled up trees north of the border at Rangers but he’s found it tougher going at Aston Villa. He employs a vastly different style to Klopp but he would clearly be a popular appointment with the Kop faithful. Instead of the Villa job being a stepping stone to an emotional Anfield return, could it in fact be a millstone around his neck?

Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel likes following in Jurgen Klopp’s footsteps and he’s a man with serious Champions League pedigree as well. He got the heave-ho at Chelsea but has knowledge of the Premier League to boot. Could be the shrewdies’ choice.

Xabi Alonso

Another former Liverpool midfield maestro, Xabi Alonso, is cutting his teeth back in his native Spain with Real Sociedad’s B team in Segunda Division B. He’s been there for a while now after a spell with Real Madrid’s youth team. No doubt, taking the Liverpool job would be a big step up, though.

Julian Nagelsmann

Another German gaffer? Julian Nagelsmann is head coach at Bayern Munich, and obviously it’s worked out pretty well for the Reds since they last hired from the top of the Bundesliga.

He’s got four years left on his deal, after winning the league at the Allianz Arena in his first year in charge of the club. Pedigree.

Diego Simeone

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone seems to feature on every next manager list and it’s for good reason. He’s done a great job in the Spanish capital but has been with Atleti for a long, long time. The football might not be up to Klopp’s standards but the touchline antics might be even more enjoyable.

Rafa Benitez

Still adored in the red half of Merseyside, Rafa Benitez is a free agent after getting hounded out at Everton. Benitez won four trophies, including that famous Champions League in Istanbul in 2005, during his six-year stay at Liverpool between 2004 and 2010.
