Xabi Alonso left red-faced by Steven Gerrard as Liverpool set sights on Klopp replacement.



Steven Gerrard humiliated Xabi Alonso, and Liverpool is pursuing a Klopp

replacement.Speculation immediately arose that Alonso, a former midfielder for Liverpool, would be the individual to take his place. Before moving to Real Madrid in 2009, he spent five fruitful seasons with the club during his playing career and was a member of their illustrious Champions League victory in 2005.


Moreover, the Spaniard is presently demonstrating remarkable managerial prowess in the Bundesliga for Bayer Leverkusen, who lead Bayern Munich by four points and pose a significant challenge to the reigning champions’ bid for a twelfth consecutive championship. Additionally, Liverpool supporters are cognizant of the fact that he declared his aspiration to eventually occupy the hot seat at Anfield in January 2018.


When queried about his aspiration to be appointed manager, he responded to Guillem Balague, “Indeed, I have imagined of that. However, prior to that, I must demonstrate my competence and readjust. Should I ultimately opt to pursue managerial opportunities, my allegiance, dedication, and enthusiasm for Liverpool will remain intact. Rather, why not? We shall determine whether our paths may cross.”Alonso never anticipated, however, being ahead of former teammate Gerrard in the hierarchy. Gerrard was the head coach of Liverpool’s Under-18 team at the time of his remarks. He was also beginning the managerial journey that, according to many, would inevitably culminate in him taking over his boyhood club following Klopp’s departure.


Furthermore, the 42-year-old predicted that he would become Liverpool’s manager “immediately rather than later,” considering his tenure with the club’s organization. “I am certain that Stevie will depart before me; it is the natural course of action.” “Since Steve is already present, I suppose it will be sooner rather than later.”


However, Alonso’s anticipation for Gerrard has been gravely misguided. He departed Merseyside for Scotland several months later and assumed leadership of Rangers. It appeared that he would rebuild his coaching reputation during his three seasons with the Glasgow club, culminating in an SPL championship in his final season.
