What Are The Odds For Liverpool's Next Manager?
⏩ Former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is the bookies' favourite to replace the Merseyside Icon with 6/10 odds. He is the current manager of Bayer Leverkusen, and they are the leaders of the Bundesliga table after a record-breaking start to the league.
⏩ Brighton manager De Zerbi is another potential candidate for the job at 6/1 odds. Since he arrived in the Premier League, he has been a breath of fresh air. The Italian guided his team in Europe for the first time in the club's history after finishing sixth in the league last year, reaching the knockout stages of the UEFA Europa League this season.
⏩ Next on the list at 8/1 is the Dutch Pep Lijnders, the current assistant manager of Liverpool with almost 10 years of experience with the team. But as of now, he has announced that he will move on from Merseyside to pursue his own career in management despite the links.
⏩ The odds for Liverpool's legend Steven Gerrard may not be the best at 16/1, but what a story this would be. Klopp has said that Gerrard would become the club's manager in the future, which could be an excellent opportunity for the former team captain.
⏩ Other potential candidates for the job are Julian Nagelsmann (@12/1), Zinedine Zidane (@14/1), Jose Mourinho (@20/1) and Luis Enrique (@20/1). However, we expect Liverpool’s board to go all out for Alonso.

On top of that, the decision for Klopp's departure at the end of the season has already made the bookmakers consider where he will end up next. The German national team is a mile ahead of the rest in Jurgen Klopp next club odds at just 11/50, depending on their Euro 2024 results, of course.
Second on the list is Barcelona at 5/1, due to Xavi's, the current manager, announcement to leave at the end of the 2023/24 season. In third place, we find Klopp's former club, Borussia Dortmund, where a return by no means seems an impossibility at 15/2.
Of course, many others will be interested in signing Klopp with a resume like this, but it seems like a long shot that he will join a team soon, as he stated that he needs a break from management.
