Liverpool’s talisman Steven Gerrard would be ideal replacement for Jurgen Klopp as and when he leaves Merseyside according to the man who was crowned the best manager in the FIFA awards.
“If Liverpool were to sack me tomorrow, then maybe Kenny [Dalglish] would be the first choice to replace me, but they would probably bring Stevie down from Glasgow,” Klopp said.
“If you ask who should follow me, I’d say Stevie. I help him whenever I can, assured the German. “If someone gets your job, it’s not about them, it’s about you not being good enough. I’m old enough to know that I give this job everything. I’m not a genius, I’m not perfect, but I give the club 100 per cent. If that’s enough, great. If it’s not, then it’s just the problem of the situation.”
“I’m not jealous, I’m not sceptical. I’m completely open. If you want my help, you’ll get it.
“My family often thinks that I’m too quick to open up, but I think being any other way is a waste of time. I love life, I love my job, I like most people – that’s how it is.”
