Pep Ljinders not thinking about taking over from Klopp at Liverpool
After doing a Twitter poll in 2019, asking Liverpool fans whether they'd rather see Steven Gerrard or Pep Ljinders take over from Jurgen Klopp, the result was surprising.
The popular young coach was a clear preference for many LFC fans, particularly after being much more in the public eye since returning to Liverpool. His tone, his views on the game and how it should be played, all scream Jurgen Klopp.
But the 36 year old coach isn't too fond on the idea just yet though, and is happy to just continue supporting his manager.
He told the Athletic (via the Liverpool Echo): "It makes me proud but it’s not realistic because it’s not important at this moment in time.
"My only ambition is to support Jurgen and our project in the best way possible.
"Mike Gordon and Jurgen have been the most important people in my career. They gave me the chance and the belief to lead the process of training and methodology with the first team.
"This is my life. I feel passionate about this club and I feel blessed to work with passionate colleagues.
"I feel that what we have here in this period we will never experience again in our lives.
"So many things have come together with the owners, the manager, people behind the manager who in hard moments never give up, and a playing group who are so together and really want to play for Liverpool and for us as a staff."
