I like the way he plays the gam...The former Liverpool defender supports the appointment of Roberto De Zerbi Transfers

Xabi Alonso, Ruben Amorim, and Julian Nagelsmann are among the candidates to succeed Jurgen Klopp, who announced his retirement mid-season, and Robert De Zerbi, who currently leads Brighton.

Defender Steve Nicol, who made more than 300 appearances for Liverpool in his playing days and also played for the Scotland national team, said he finds the Italian manager’s fluid soccer in charge of the Premier League attractive and consensual if he becomes Anfield’s next manager.

“I don’t have a problem with that, I like the way he plays the game,”

“He is going to inherit players who want to play and have been successful at playing not unlike the way he likes to play the game.”

“So, from that point of view, I think it makes complete sense.”


This season, mainstays such as Japanese national team winger Kaoru Mitoma and English midfielder Solomon March were out for a long time due to injury.

In addition, experienced players such as James Milner and Mahmoud Dahoud have not performed as well as expected, and the overcrowded schedule combined with the Europa League has prevented them from reaching their full potential.

In the domestic league, the team is still in a position to qualify for European competitions, and it is essential to turn things around from here. In order to do so, the further development of young players such as Simon Adingra and Evan Ferguson is inevitable.

Will the 44-year-old coach, who has shown his ability to build a team, take the step up to the Premier League this summer, move on to challenge in other leagues, or spend another season at Brighton?
