Xabi Alonso may be the only manager who can save ‘outstanding’ player’s future at Liverpool.



The popular choice to succeed Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager is Xabi Alonso. You can understand why. Exciting attacking football is what Alonso does best. Having played for Liverpool for many years, he already possesses the club’s DNA.

Plus, he has a history of success in the Bundesliga, namely at a high level. With 30 games played and no losses, Alonso is the only manager in Europe’s top five leagues to enjoy an undefeated season. His accomplishments this season have been particularly remarkable.For Liverpool, Alonso would be a game-changer. He has his own thoughts. But at this point in time, he is the best alternative to Klopp that we have. It’s no wonder he’s the fan favorite to replace the German, either.Fabio Carvalho’s future may be saved by Xabi Alonso.

Among Alonso’s potential alterations at Liverpool is a shift in strategy. A manager’s philosophy and system are two things that they can change. Keeping possession of the ball is fundamental to Alonso’s game. This is countered by his strong pushing and his efforts to reduce his opponents’ time in possession.The 3-4-2-1 formation is Alonso’s philosophy at Leverkusen. At Liverpool, he might not use this formation. He might decide to stick with Jurgen Klopp’s successful 4-3-3 formation. One player, though, could gain from Alonso’s arrival if he does decide to adopt a 3-4-2-1 style.


According to Jurgen Klopp, Fabio Carvalho is a player with “outstanding” potential. However, the Germans never really favoured him. Klopp was unable to incorporate him into his system, despite his promising early displays for the club.But that would alter when Alonso was in charge. Alonso’s setup is ideal for Carvalho’s playstyle. There are two number tens in Alonso’s system, one on each side of the striker, and Carvalho is most effective in that position. If Carvalho is able to find success in one of these positions, it might be the system that helps him get back on track with Liverpool and ensures his future with the club.


For this reason, Alonso may hold the secret to Carvalho’s future at Anfield. The teenager is currently impressing while out on loan, and if he keeps up his strong play for Hull City, he should have an opportunity to show the new boss what he can do during preseason in the summer.
