It is controversial that manager Enze Postecoglou, who is leading Tottenham, is also being discussed as a candidate. Britain’s “Sports Mall” reported on the 28th (Korean time) that “Brentford’s Thomas Frank and Tottenham’s Postecoglou are known to be considered as the coaches to succeed Jurgen Klopp.”
Liverpool announced its breakup with Klopp after the 2023-2024 season on Wednesday. Klopp, who is under contract with Liverpool until 2026, said he was “out of energy” and explained why he voluntarily resigned.마카오토토도메인
Liverpool is currently No. 1 in the English Premier League with 48 points (14 wins, 6 draws and 1 loss), which is all the more shocking. It is five points shorter than Manchester City (43 points), which played one less game.
According to The Athletic, Liverpool already recognized its breakup with Klopp in November last year. And he reportedly contacted several agents to prepare for the era of “First Klopp.”
Aside from Frank, it is unfortunate news for Tottenham fans that Postecoglou was nominated. Australian coach Postecoglou entered the big league this season.
The team opened an era of success in Celtic, Scotland, but it was a different challenge. It was a move from God. Postecoglou appointed Son as the team’s captain and reorganized the team. He also excited fans with his aggressive soccer, which tactically boosted the team’s lineup to the maximum.
Tottenham is currently ranked fifth (40 points) in the EPL, although it is regrettable that it failed to pass the FA Cup early. Its gap with Liverpool is eight points.
Postecoglou also introduced his experience of being rejected as a gloomy “Hollywood audition” during the pre-season tour in Australia last year, when he tried to become a coach of not only EPL but also Championship (second division).
Currently, he is the hottest coach in the EPL. Postecoglou expressed surprise at Klopp’s breakup ahead of the match against Manchester City on Thursday, and said, “I can understand that.”
Of course, the possibility is open. However, chances are not high that Postecoglou will leave Tottenham. Chairman Daniel Levy is not likely to let go.
“Football London” said on the 28th, “Tottenham is not afraid of Postecoglou leaving the club early this summer. Coach Postecoglou is excited about Tottenham’s project,” adding, “Postecoglou’s acquaintances describe him as a person who is faithful to those who give him a chance and has a desire to succeed. Considering that, leaving after just one year does not seem to suit Postecoglou.”
Meanwhile, Xavi Alonso and Steven Gerrard from Liverpool are also candidates for the next head coach. Alonso, who is leading Leverkusen, has been recognized for his leadership by putting his team at the top of the Bundesliga this season.
Gerrard, the coach of Saudi Arabia’s RT Park, is a question mark as a leader. Brighton coach Roberto De Gervy is also mentioned as a candidate.
