Since Klopp announced that he would the club at the end of the season the talk in the football community has been about who could replace him. He has won trophies at Liverpool. In his spell at Liverpool, he has won. He won UEFA Champions League (2018/19), UEFA Super Cup (2019), Premier League(2019/20), Carabao Cup (2021/22), FA Cup (2021/22), Community Shield (2022). It will be difficult for a new manager to repeat his success. let’s have a look at the shortlist of Liverpool.
Manager shortlist of Liverpool
The candidates who are leading the race are former Liverpool legend Xabi Alonso. He is having a wonderful season at Bayer Leverkusen. Leverkusen are Unbeaten under spainiard. They are the only team in Top Flight of Europe. They Haven’t lost a single match in both European and domestic competitions.
But the candidate Liverpool Management has mapped out for replacement of Klopp according to TEAMtalk. The manager of Portuguese table-toppers Sporting Lisbon, Rúben Amorim. But the 39-year-old will not enter discussions with the Anfield side until the end of the season. Liverpool need to pay €20m (£17m) release clause, as he has a release clause in his contract.
He has managed Sporting in 207 games. Won 146 matches and 4 Trophies, including winning the 2020/21 LIGA Portugal. He currently has a record of 2.25 points per match.
Best manager for Trent ?
It could even bring the best out of Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has long been a right-back but is starting to shift into a central midfield role in possession to maximise his world-class creative ability.
Amorim’s possession-heavy style – which has seen Sporting hold 59.3% of the ball to Liverpool’s 59.5% this season – could well benefit him massively. Indeed, it’s arguable that the Reds would see no less of the ball than they have under their German hero.
Additionally, the requirement of a wing-back (Amoriom uses a 3-4-3 formation) could be perfect to allow Alexander-Arnold to take his influence to new heights, providing him with a greater license to roam and continuing a development that might lead to a future role of permanence in the centre of the park.
