Perfect Jürgen Klopp heir may have just emerged after 'massive Liverpool fan' admission


Liverpool knows one day all fairy tales end. You simply cannot live happily ever after forever.

That is not the nature of life. That is not the nature of football. Things ebb and flow, and one day even the best things come to an end. In a hopefully distant future, that means one day Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp will also part ways.

For now, in the near future at least, there is no chance of Klopp going anywhere. His contract is until 2026, and the German is a man of his word which means he is expected to fulfil that commitment.

Nonetheless, Liverpool always has to prepare for every eventuality and that means there must be a future shortlist of candidates who could potentially succeed Klopp.

One of the favorites who is doing very well at the moment is Xabi Alonso. But the Spaniard is not the only one.

Based on his recent comments, Ange Postecoglou must also now emerge as a possible future candidate for Klopp's throne at Liverpool.

The Tottenham manager has started life brilliantly in the Premier League, despite taking on a rocky side at the start of this summer which seemed in a lot of turmoil. Postecoglou has turned it all around and has rebranded Tottenham even after losing captain Harry Kane.

Currently, his side sits in second place above Liverpool on goal difference in the Premier League ahead of the North London derby.

His exciting brand of football which saw him adored at Celtic is fun to watch, and it seems like it was very much inspired by Liverpool.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Postecoglou revealed he was a Liverpool fan growing up.

"I always wanted to be a manager. I loved the game. I loved all of it, not just playing. I would get three-month-old Shoot magazines, Roy of the Rovers. I would read everything. I was a massive Liverpool fan, I loved Bill Shankly, I loved the boot room stories," said Postecoglou.

After that admission, presenter Gary Lineker asked him whether he was still a fan of Liverpool.

“Well, I’ve taken the posters down mate, last week!” Postecoglou responded.

Being inspired by Bill Shankly and having already managed a club in Celtic that also sings You'll Never Walk Alone, if Postecoglou continues to impress, eventually in the future he may be able to put those posters back up.

On and off the pitch he is exactly the type of manager who would appeal to Liverpool fans. He speaks candidly with reporters, gives passionate team talks and is definitely capable of evoking emotion from his players. Add to that his exciting brand of football and his ability to spot talent from all over the world and man-manage them, and Liverpool may just have the perfect Klopp heir in Postecoglou.
