Xabi Alonso could potentially replace Jurgen Klopp as the Liverpool manager in the future - Lineker, Shearer Reveals

 Former Premier League stars, Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer have reckoned Xabi Alonso could be a great option to potentially replace Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager in the near future.

Recall that Alonso spent five years at Liverpool as a player between 2009 and 2014 before he left Anfield to join Real Madrid.

The former midfielder scored 18 goals and provided 20 assists in 210 games for the Premier League giants.

The Spaniard won several trophies, including one UEFA Champions League.

He is now the manager of Bayer Leverkusen, whom he joined last year.

Speaking on The Rest is Football podcast, Shearer said about Alonso (via ECHO):

“He is getting rave reviews isn’t he? He has started his coaching and managerial career really well. It won’t be long if he keeps on going before others are starting to look at him if they have not already and then you never know do you?”

On his part, Lineker, said, “I think there is every chance that once Carlo Ancelotti walks away or is pushed out as is often the case at Real Madrid, he might end up there as manager of a certain Jude Bellingham

“Also, he could possibly follow Klopp further down the line. With these things, you always do, don’t you. There is always going to be Gerrard.”
