Next Liverpool manager odds: Nagelsmann, Postecoglou and Tuchel trail favourite if Jurgen Klopp leaves, Pochettino 16-1 | The Sun

PEP LIJNDERS is favourite to replace Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

That's according to Betfair, who've updated their next manager markets following Liverpool's extended slump.


The Reds hit a new low when dismantled by struggling Wolves 3-0 at Molineux over the weekend.

Their latest defeat marked the first time since 2012 that Liverpool have lost three successive away games in the Premier League.

They now sit 10th in the division, 11 points behind fourth-placed Newcastle and 21 adrift from league leaders Arsenal.

The club's Fenway Sports Group ownership has given Klopp their full backing with The Athletic claiming there is 'no chance' he'll be relieved of his duties.

However, pundit Jan Aage Fjortoft believes the German tactician could choose to walk.

He tweeted: "Jurgen Klopp won’t be fired. But he could walk," following Saturday's defeat.

If he does decide to call it quits, who is the frontrunner for his position?

Liverpool next manager

Betfair odds

  • Pep Lijnders – 5/2
  • Thomas Tuchel – 4/1
  • Steven Gerrard – 9/2
  • Julian Nagelsmann – 13/2
  • Ange Postecoglou – 15/2
  • Xabi Alonso – 10/1
  • Diego Simeone – 14/1
  • Luis Enrique – 14/1
  • Antonio Conte – 16/1
  • Mauricio Pochettino – 16/1
  • Graham Potter – 25/1
  • Thomas Frank – 25/1


As mentioned, Liverpool assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders is favourite at 5-2.

Free agent Thomas Tuchel is next in the betting at 4-1 to arrive at Anfield having already managed Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.

Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard is available at 9-2, although his tenure at Aston Villa has seen his odds drift markedly.

Dynamic Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann is offered at 13-2, narrowly ahead of Celtic's Ange Postecoglou at 15-2.

In fact, Charlie Nicholas reckons Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou would be "ideal" for Liverpool.

Nicholas wrote for the Scottish Daily Express: "I know the Liverpool fans don’t want Jurgen Klopp out but what happens if he turns around and says enough is enough? Could Ange for Liverpool become reality? Ange will have ambitions as well.

"If Liverpool were to look for a manager then surely Ange would have to come into the equation.

"I hate to say this because I know a lot of my fellow Celtic fans won’t like me saying this but Ange would be ideal for Liverpool."
