The footballing world was taken by surprise when Jurgen Klopp announced his departure from Liverpool at the end of this season.
While many speculated about his next move, Klopp himself has hinted at the possibility of taking a break from management.
In a recent interview, he stated that he may not return to coaching immediately after leaving Liverpool, leaving the football community curious about his future plans.
One potential destination for Klopp is FC Barcelona, where current coach Xavi is under pressure. However, Klopp has indicated that he may retire from management altogether, stating that he would not manage another club in England apart from Liverpool.
This assertion rules out the possibility of seeing him back in the Premier League unless it’s with his beloved Liverpool.
Football pundit Stan Collymore believes that Klopp’s next move could be to Bayern Munich, Germany’s national team, or even Barcelona or Real Madrid.
He suggests that if offered the chance, Real Madrid would eagerly hire Klopp without hesitation.
However, Collymore also acknowledges that Klopp may choose to step away from the game for a while before returning to management.
As for Klopp’s successor at Liverpool, Collymore sees Xabi Alonso as the frontrunner. He believes that if Liverpool approaches Alonso, he would express his desire to leave Bayer Leverkusen and take up the opportunity to manage his former club.
Collymore is confident that Alonso is the only suitable candidate to replace Klopp at Anfield.
