5 issues Liverpool face after Jurgen Klopp's shock announcement

Jurgen Klopp dropped a bombshell by announcing he would be leaving Liverpool at the end of the 2023/24 season. The German's decision to vacate his post after over eight years in the Anfield dug-out shocked the football world and left many Liverpool fans worried.

What would become of the club once their iconic manager had moved on? Would there be a return to the days of struggling to keep up with their main competitors? Those answers will be revealed in the fullness of time, but the powers that be at the Merseyside outfit have a monumental task on their hands to replace their departing boss.

Not only has Klopp led the team to incredible results on the pitch - such as Premier League and Champions League trophies - but the ex-Borussia Dortmund and Mainz manager also has his identity running through the club at many levels.

In the same way Manchester United and Arsenal were handed the task of replacing extremely powerful figures at the club when Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger decided their times were up, Liverpool will need to face life without the man whose DNA runs through the institution.

There are several pressing matters for Fenway Sports Group (the club owners) to address by the time Klopp steps down at the end of the season. GIVEMESPORT have decided to take a look into five of these issues below.

As soon as the news of Klopp's departure broke, speculation was immediately rife surrounding the upcoming job vacancy as the manager of one of the most famous football clubs on the planet. There were immediately two names that jumped to the top of the list of favourites to replace the German boss - Xabi Alonso and Roberto De Zerbi.

Of course two of the most exciting young managers around would be in consideration for the role, with both men carrying out extremely impressive jobs at Bayer Leverkusen and Brighton. Alonso has a strong connection with the Liverpool fan base, just as Klopp has, due to his popularity in his playing days at Anfield. The 42-year-old looks to be the outstanding candidate to succeed the Reds' manager.
