Dean Windass has exclusively told Football FanCast that he believes Steven Gerrard will replace Jurgen Klopp as the next Liverpool manager.
The Reds legend, who added to his growing reputation in management by securing Rangers’ first Scottish Premiership title for a decade earlier this month, has been strongly linked with a return to Anfield.
Gerrard’s men have dropped eight points in the league, and are just six games away from going the entire league season unbeaten.
His outstanding job at Ibrox – which sees the 40-year-old hold a 67% win percentage – has led to him being touted as the man to replace Klopp in the Anfield hot seat, although the former Reds midfielder recently admitted that he wants the German to remain on Merseyside for “many years”.
Klopp’s position has come under pressure in recent months following Liverpool’s wretched Premier League form which has put their chances of playing in the Champions League next season in serious doubt.
And whilst Windass doesn’t believe that Klopp won’t leave this summer, he thinks that Gerrard will eventually replace the former Borussia Dortmund boss.
He told Football FanCast:
“All day long. I think he’s battening it down a little bit, and rightly so, he’s won his first title with Rangers and he has absolutely turned it around. What an achievement for Steven Gerrard. Steven says that him being a Liverpool fan, he wants Jurgen Klopp to be the manager of Liverpool, and the Liverpool fans to be there next year.
“If Jurgen Klopp leaves, you ask every Liverpool fan in the country who do they want as manager? Without a doubt. I’m not saying he is the right one, everyone on the lips of Liverpool supporters if Jurgen decides to leave, the only man that will come calling is Steven.”
