Considering this debate as being hypothetical and that Klopp will see out his remaining years of his contract, Gerrard may not be the only name we should be considering, when the time comes, historically we have promoted from within Shanks to Bob, Bob to Joe, Joe to Kenny that’s nigh on 30 years of unrivalled success bar from a season or two, not saying this will be repeated but we do have a fella who I believe can do a Bob Paisley,
Pep Ljinders for me is one of the top coaches in the world, he has a lot of in put and knowledge as part of Klopp’s coaching staff, he is not a manager as such but then again nor was Bob or Joe for that matter, but what they do/did know was how things work at Melwood now Axa, he knows all the players individually, their likes & dislikes, their individual training methods, their traits etc, a new manager coming in would have to learn all of this and that will take time, and of course a new manager’s philosophy would take time to work to,
With Pep Ljinders the philosophy is already there, as too is the knowledge of his players, only thing that isn’t there is his own style of play, but I doubt it would be much different form what we are seeing with Jürgen, attacking rock N roll football,
Know one knows what will happen when Jürgen decides to hang up his snood, but I do hope that Pep Ljinders is in the minds of those who’s job it is to seek our next manager.
