Following growing questions from Liverpool’s board of directors about Jurgen Klopp’s future, Steven Gerrard is reportedly being lined up to succeed him as manager.
Klopp, who guided Liverpool to their first Premier League title last season, is set to succeed Joachim Low as Germany’s national coach.
According to the Mirror, the German Football Association (DFB) finds the Reds boss to be the best choice for the Germany role, and they expect to approach him soon. Low has led the national team for 15 years, winning the 2014 World Cup, but he has had a rough time after the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the Nations League.
The 61-year-old avoided being fired and is expected to complete his deal, which will see him in charge of the European Championships this summer and the World Cup in Qatar in 2022. Low’s job with Germany could be jeopardized if Germany performs badly in this summer’s tournament, causing an earlier approach for the Liverpool boss.
