Ed, can you clear something up for me please.

On the Aston Villa site, someone is claiming that they have a good source at Liverpool and state that Jurgen is contracted until 2023 and is looking to take the German National job.

Is there any substance to this?

{Ed002's Note - His contract runs to 2024.}

Agree0 Disagree0

By 2024 (4 years away) Klopp will have served for 8 full seasons.

Impossible to begrudge him his home countries national job. The guys a living legend.

Hopefully Pepjin Lijnders will be ready for the hot seat by then!

{Ed025's Note - good No2,s rarely make good managers HMB, i remember colin harvey at everton replacing kendall and everyone saying how well he would do and it never happened for him, kidd at united and city the list is very long, never say never but it is seldom the case mate..

Never say never but by all accounts from what we have read, Linders is a very intelligent man and is behind a lot of Klopp’s tactical success after Buvac. He will have been learning on the job for years that point, he isn’t just some managers enforcer who puts the cones out, he really does seem to be the one who would be best placed to take over. While there are lots of examples of number 2’s taking over and it not working, there are equally lots of examples of it turning out okay. Liverpool built their entire dynasty on number 2’s taking over from their predecessor. Flick at Bayern has done fantastically well this season. Vilanova was a very good coach and would have done brilliant at Barca, god rest his soul. It definitely can work the way it is intended to, you just have to make sure that the assistant has what it takes and is not just a Steve McClaren or Mike Phelan! I think if you asked everybody within the club who they would want to take over if Klopp suddenly left tomorrow, i am confident almost all would say Linders.

I’m not sure anyone can replace what Klopp offers. No one can replicate his personality and unlikely anyone could offer as much enthusiasm and positivity in his role.
The tactics and strategies are easy to learn compared to being able to drive your team to victory when they are 3-0 down.

Leipzig manager maybe, can't see Gerrard being the next manager but hopefully if alls going well klopps might extend his contract further. and Ed 25 what about Steve mcclaren, won the Dutch league and was fluent in Dutch by the time he did his first interview :)

{Ed025's Note - i remember that well gmil, i was shouting at the screen "WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU IDIOT", i was embarrassed for him mate.. :)

Very true 25. But also, look at the old boot room. Shankley, Paisley, Fagan, Dalglish etc. If internal promotion is done properly, it can work.

You are right though. If Pep is not ready by that time or simply not right for the job, he shouldn't get it.

I really just hope it's not Gerrard purely off the back of who he is. He's doing a pathetic job at Rangers if anybody is prepared to be honest with themselves. No clear style of play, no direction, no plan for long term/ sustainable success, and relying massively on his contacts in English football to get signings he others would not be able to broker. Don't even get me started on his Brendan-esque interviews. I have my doubts that he'll win anything up there to be honest. He's put far too much stock in that over rated red card liability up front.

Replacing Klopp will be a monumental task and its critical we don't get all sentimental!

{Ed025's Note - they are fair points mate..

Bob Paisley Ed?

{Ed025's Note - im not saying it never happens B47, paisley was an awesome manager mate but one of very few..
