Liverpool line up Steve Gerrard as Klopp replacement

Liverpool is lining up club legend Steve Gerrard as their next boss if Jurgen Klopp is to leave.

Klopp has been linked with a move to the national team with reports rife that the German football federation sees him as the perfect replacement for Joachim Low with the Mirror reporting that they are planning to make their approach for the former Dortmund boos soon.

Low has been in charge of Germany for the past 15 years winning the 2014 World Cup - but has more recently endured a tough time following the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the Nations League. He has managed to avoid the sack and looks likely to see out his contract which will see him take charge at the European Championships this summer and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

A poor performance however in the summer tournament could see the 61-year-old lose his job with the Germany federation expected to make a move for Klopp then.

The Mirror reveals that Klopp is a huge admirer of the job and it would be hard for him to turn such an offer down something has forced Liverpool to start the search for his replacement early.

Gerrard has been doing well with Rangers in the Scottish premiership where he is set to win the league after many years of dominance from Celtic.
