Accordingly Sky SportsJulian Nagelsmann is open to becoming Liverpool manager in the future.
The Reds won’t be changing coaches anytime soon. Jurgen Klopp is a legend at the club and this job seems to be his for as long as he wants.
However, the German’s contract runs until 2024 and with the gaffer looking to take time off around that time, he may need to be replaced.
Sky believes Nagelsmann would be happy to take up the challenge and that news could be music to Ibrahima Konate’s ears.
In fact, Konate has worked with Nagelsmann at RB Leipzig and he has had a lot of good things to say about the manager in the past.
What did Konate say?
The Frenchman praised Nagelsmann during their time together in Germany.
“You can feel that he lives for football, he wants to win, you can feel his emotions. It’s better to have a coach who yells at his players because it keeps you focused and keeps you from falling asleep on the pitch. It’s true that we have more freedom in defense than other clubs. The coach has that philosophy and he knows that we have athletic qualities and that we’re not afraid to play the ball, so he gives us a chance to get the ball on the pitch.” called.
An expressive coach who is obsessed with winning and gives his defenders the freedom to go forward. Nagelsmann sounds like the perfect replacement for Klopp at Liverpool.
Of course, the current Bayern boss still has a lot to prove, but if all goes to plan Liverpool will be able to see Nagelsmann up close in the Champions League semi-finals as Bayern progress past Villarreal and Liverpool beat Benfica.
Steven Gerrard and Pep Lijnders have long been touted as potential Klopp successors but don’t be shocked if Nagelsmann ends up at Anfield.
