Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes that Rangers boss Steven Gerrard could replace Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool one day.
By no means is the former centre half suggesting that it’ll happen any time soon, but Carra reckons Stevie’s experience in Scotland will help him further down the line.
“Why not?” he asked the Liverpool Echo. “will be a clamour for probably a lot of people I think whenever Jurgen Klopp decides his time is up at Liverpool but hopefully that’s a long way away.
“There’s no doubt Steven Gerrard will come into that because of the job he’s doing at Rangers but also because he’s a Liverpool legend.
“He’s doing a fantastic job at Rangers so that will certainly help him.”
Klopp signed a six-year contract extension in 2016, right after the Europa League Final defeat to Sevilla, meaning that right now – he’s still got three years left to run, but it’d be nice to imagine Gerrard taking over after the German.
Let’s hope that the former Liverpool captain has picked up enough badges on the way, when or if the opportunity comes his way.
There’s no doubt that working with Rangers will help Gerrard’s CV, should he ever be put forward for the job at Anfield, but let’s hope Klopp isn’t in a rush to finish up.
