Liverpool is having a terrible season under the management of Jurgen Klopp
Liverpool’s winless start to the 2023 Premier League season continued on Saturday with a 3-0 defeat against Wolves at Molineux. The game was effectively over after only 12 minutes, thanks to an early own goal by Joel Matip and a shot from Wolves defender Craig Dawson.
Ruben Neves added insult to injury with a third goal in the second half, and the Reds are currently languishing in 10th position in the table, with little indications of improving anytime soon.
There is currently no hint that manager Jurgen Klopp will be fired anytime soon, and the board remains totally committed to the renowned German. But, unless he sees results soon, one has to question how long the scenario will last.
Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino have been mentioned as possible options for Klopp in the future. However, Express Sport looks at four more out-of-the-box candidates Liverpool could consider for the job…
Former Liverpool midfielder Alonso played with the club for five years, winning the Champions League and the FA Cup. Since retiring, he has pursued a coaching career, and after a stint at Real Sociedad B, he is presently at Bayer Leverkusen, where he is making an impression in the Bundesliga.
Despite the fact that Alonso was only appointed in October, the 41-year-old may find it tough to reject down an emotional homecoming to Merseyside if given the chance. The ex-Spain international appears to be a potential possibility who would be greeted as a hero by Liverpool fans.
Postecoglou appears to be on his way to becoming a European heavyweight in the near future. The popular Australian coach has received numerous accolades for his beneficial impact on Celtic, and his appealing style of football will also be seen favorably.
Postecoglou is clearly well-traveled, having previously managed in Greece, Japan, and Australia. Some may question whether he has enough big-team experience to take on the role at Anfield just yet.
Mr. Ruben Amorim
Amorim of Sporting Lisbon is another exciting coach who has been making waves this season. The 38-year-old, dubbed “the new Jose Mourinho” by some, led his team to the Primeira Liga victory last year and also impressed in the Champions League this season, grabbing four points off Tottenham in the group stages.
Amorim helped shape some huge potential at Sporting, and it would be fascinating to see what he might accomplish with Liverpool’s youthful roster. Given his youth, he would undoubtedly be a risk, but one that could be worthwhile.
Liverpool, on the other hand, may want to explore closer to home. Ljinders has been Klopp’s loyal right-hand man for the majority of his time at the club, and he has had a significant impact on the players he has at his disposal.
Perhaps, without the enormous shadow of Klopp, Ljinders will be able to come into his own and turn things around. If the Reds want a fresh start after Klopp, this may not be the best option.
