Xabi Alonso's competitor to succeed Klopp is Ruben Amorim of Sporting Transfers

Jurgen Klopp, who has led Liverpool since 2015, has turned around a team that had been performing precariously and has been competing with Manchester City, a club with inexhaustible financial resources, for the top spot in the Premier League on a different level.

The German coach has become one of the best in the world, but he will retire at the end of this season.The leading candidate to succeed him is former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso. He has a threatening winning record at Bayer Leverkusen and has quickly earned a reputation as a coach.

According to Gianluigi Longari of Sport Italia, the likely rival is Sporting head coach Ruben Amorim, a 39-year-old Portuguese youngster who has struggled not only in the domestic league but also in the Europa League.

“Liverpool’s search for a new manager are in progress.”

“Many candidates in the running, the first on the list of LFC is Xabi Alonso.”

“Among the alternatives taken into consideration by Reds the name of Ruben Amorim currently managing Sporting stands out.”
