Possible replacement for Jurgen Klopp as head coach of Liverpool revealed


Following the Xabi Alonso sub, the possible replacement for Jurgen Klopp as the head coach of Liverpool has been revealed.

On Friday, Liverpool's attempts to bring Xabi Alonso back to Anfield were dealt a blow as the Spaniard decided to stay put at Bayer Leverkusen. The club is currently on track for their first-ever Bundesliga title and remains unbeaten in 38 games across all competitions this season.

As a former Liverpool player and Champions League winner, Alonso was quickly installed as a favourite to succeed Jurgen Klopp after the German's announcement in January that he would leave at the end of the season.

However, with Alonso's decision to remain at Leverkusen, Liverpool's hopes of securing his services to soften the blow of Klopp's impending departure have been dashed. Currently, Sporting Lisbon coach Ruben Amorim is the new front-runner with bookmakers, followed by Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi and Germany boss Julian Nagelsmann.
