The role of Liverpool manager is a high-pressured one, especially as the Merseyside club have a global fan base who are eagerly hoping for a first Premier League title since 1990.
Jurgen Klopp has been in charge at Anfield since October 2015 and it appears unlikely that the German will be stepping down in the near future. However, this a club with a high turnover rate and there are some bookies that have Klopp featured in the Premier League sack race market.
The main issue for Klopp is that his Liverpool team haven’t won anything at the time of writing. They’re in a Premier League title battle during the 2018/19 season although they currently look like being edged out by Manchester City.
Meanwhile, they reached the 2018 Champions League final before being beaten by Real Madrid, while Sevilla - managed by Unai Emery who took up the Arsenal job which was also recently priced up - beat the Reds two seasons previously in the Europa League final.
Klopp is generally regarded as having done an excellent job and his recruitment has regularly been spot on with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Alisson among the players who have made a huge impact over the last few seasons.
Therefore, it appears that the hunt for the next permanent Liverpool manager won’t be taking place any time soon, although Klopp is 51-years-old and might eventually feel as though he’s taken the English club as far as he can.
Seven years appears to be the going rate for the former Borussia Dortmund manager who started his career at Mainz between 2001-2008 before a similar length of time at the Westfalenstadion where he was able to land two Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012.
Next Liverpool Manager Betting Odds
There’s little doubt as to the people’s choice when it comes to the next Liverpool manager and the betting odds suggest that Steven Gerrard will have a lively chance of taking charge of the Reds when the time eventually comes.
Gerrard has cut his managerial teeth north of the border with Glasgow Rangers and has acquitted himself well so far, with the Liverpool legend probably hoping that Klopp keeps the seat warm for him over the next few years.
Stevie G is trading at odds-on with Paddy Power in their Next Liverpool Manager Betting Odds and there would be huge clamour for the Gers manager to return to the homecoming of all homecomings should the opportunity arise.
Gerrard’s former midfield partner in crime could also be in the running, with Xabi Alonso trading at around 4/1 with Paddy Power to become the next Liverpool manager. The Spaniard was hugely popular at Anfield after helping the Reds land a fifth Champions League title in 2005.
To become the latest Liverpool manager, you have to not only appeal to the supporters but also be committed to playing exciting football and Julian Nagelsmann could be seen as another natural successor to Klopp, with the German following a similar career trajectory to his compatriot.
Nagelsmann is currently in charge at Hoffenheim where he’s cultivated an expansive brand of football with young players, although another German who could be in the frame is Thomas Tuchel.
It seems virtually certain that Tuchel will eventually wind up at a big English club after impressing with Dortmund before making the switch to Paris Saint-Germain and he might well remain with the French champions for a few seasons before moving to pastures new.
Diego Simeone is the other potential candidate in the running and he will surely seek a fresh challenge away from Atletico Madrid at some stage, although the Argentine’s style of play might not be a natural fit with Liverpool - he's 16/1 with Paddy Power to be the next in charge at Anfield.
