Liverpool ‘working around the clock’ to agree new manager deal – big update from inside source on two-month search

Liverpool are “working around the clock” to replace Jurgen Klopp and his entire backroom team following his shock exit announcement, sources have told Football Insider.

The Merseyside club announced on Friday (26 January) that Klopp will be leaving at the end of the 2023-24 season after nine years in charge.

The 56-year-old revealed his decision to leave the club was because he is “running out of energy”.

It is understood that Klopp’s entire management team and backroom staff will also depart with him at the end of the season, leaving Liverpool chiefs with a huge void to fill in the coming months.

 

That includes Pep Ljinders, who has been on Klopp’s coaching staff at Anfield since 2014 barring a short managerial spell of his own at Duch side NEC, as well as long-standing ally Peter Krawietz and Vitor Matos.

Liverpool’s senior figures are now on the hunt for a new manager and multiple backroom hires ahead of the start of next season.

An inside Anfield source has revealed the club’s search for a successor began in November when FSG president Mike Gordon took the call from Klopp that he was planning to step down at the end of the season.

The club’s data department, headed by director of research Will Spearman, has been doing background work for the past two months on which candidates across the globe might fit the bill stylistically given Liverpool’s brand of football and the players set to make up the bulk of he squad over the coming years.

Klopp departs Anfield with a legendary status having ended the club’s wait to win a first Premier League title in 2020.

Under the German manager, Liverpool also won the Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, Uefa Super Cup and Fifa Club World Cup.

Klopp currently boasts a 60 percent win-rate in charge of the Reds having won 283 of his 466 matches in charge.
