Jurgen Klopp, the current manager of Liverpool Football Club, has stated that he will not be involved in the process of appointing his successor at the club. However, he is confident that Liverpool will secure a “top manager” to take over from him when he eventually steps down. Klopp has been in charge of Liverpool since 2015 and has led the team to numerous successes, including winning the Premier League and the Champions League.
Klopp made his comments during a press conference on Friday, January 26, 2024. He stated that he would not be offering any advice on who should succeed him as Liverpool’s manager, saying, “No, why should I? The last thing they need is advice from the old man walking out who tells them: ‘By the way, make sure you bring him in.’ I will definitely not do that.”
Klopp went on to express his confidence in Liverpool’s ability to find a suitable replacement for him, saying, “They will get a top manager here, there will be good football.”
Liverpool’s Search for a New Manager
Liverpool is currently without a sporting director, but the club’s chief executive, Billy Hogan, has stated that they will go through the process of finding a new manager in private with the people at the club. Hogan has also expressed his belief that Liverpool can find the right person for the job, saying, “We will go through that process as we have done in the past and the same process that brought us Jurgen. It is something we will do in private with the people here, with Mike Gordon in particular, and when we get to a place when we have further news we will discuss.”

However, Klopp has stated that he is confident that Liverpool will continue to be successful after he leaves, saying, “That means all what we built in the last eight and half years is an incredibly strong structure. That’s the good news… They will get a top manager here, there will be good football.”
