Danny Murphy, a former midfielder for Liverpool, believes that either Steven Gerrard or Xabi Alonso will eventually succeed Jurgen Klopp at Anfield in the near future.
The 2022–23 season has not gone well for Liverpool; they have won just two of their first eight Premier League games.
They are currently in tenth place in the Premier League standings going into their upcoming match against Manchester City.
Murphy anticipates Klopp staying at Anfield for some time, but he does predict that Gerrard or Alonso will lead Liverpool in the future.
“I think Steven Gerrard or Xabi Alonso could manage Liverpool, absolutely, yeah. I don’t think either of them have probably done just enough yet to warrant that,” Murphy told Fair Betting Sites (as per The Liverpool Echo).
“I don’t think there’s a Liverpool fan on the planet, irrelevant of the start of the season, that would be even thinking about a possible change with Klopp. I don’t see that at all.”
He added: “I think it’s a big couple of seasons for Stevie at Villa to show his credentials, implement his style. It’s been a little bit up and down for him at Villa. He’d probably be the first to say that, so we will have to wait and see.
“I think Alonso’s more in the infancy of his managerial career. So, you know, that’s a hard one to anticipate. I know he had a good first win, but in terms of their stature amongst Liverpool supporters and the legacy they have left, it would be silly not to think that one of them could be in the dugout at Anfield one day.”
