Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou (58) has been linked with the possibility of succeeding Jürgen Klopp (56).
“Tottenham fans fear the worst, that Postecoglou will succeed Jürgen Klopp as Liverpool manager,” the British newspaper The Sun reported on April 4, noting that Postecoglou is also known to be a longtime Liverpool fan.
“Postecoglou is the ideal candidate to succeed Klopp,” said former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan, according to the outlet. “If he becomes Liverpool’s new manager, the club will give him the support he needs to succeed, just as they did with Klopp,” he said. “The two managers have many similarities. Their charisma and personality, their approachability and their style of play.”
Liverpool officially announced Klopp’s resignation on March 26. “I am stepping down as manager of Liverpool at the end of the season,” the club said. Klopp himself cited “burnout” (energy depletion) as the reason for his resignation. “I am leaving Liverpool. “I’m leaving Liverpool, which probably surprised and shocked a lot of fans,” he said, adding, “I feel like I’m running out of energy. I’ve known for a long time that I needed to say this. I can’t lead Liverpool for the rest of my life.”
Since announcing his resignation, Postecoglou has emerged as one of the favorites to take over at Liverpool. Liverpool legend Xabi Alonso and current Brighton manager Roberto De Jervi have also been mentioned.
“There are several reasons why Postecoglou would be the perfect choice for Liverpool, including the fact that he has been a Liverpool fan since he was a young boy,” said The 토토사이트 순위 Sun. “I had Liverpool posters on my wall like every other kid,” Postecoglou said ahead of the Reds’ seventh-round clash. They were my favorite team,” Postecoglou said before their last meeting. “He had never managed a team for more than three years. It’s possible he’ll take on a new challenge after a successful run at the club.”
A Tottenham fan told the outlet, “Postecoglou’s departure was enough to scare us. Because we absolutely respect and recognize him. Tottenham fans truly love him.”
