Liverpool could potentially have found Jurgen Klopp's future successor in the form of his assistant coach Pep Lijnders according to Muslu Nalbantoglu, TEAMtalk revealed.
The Reds have been enjoying a great deal of success having won the 2019 Champions League as well as winning the Premier League after 30 challenging years.
According to former NEC Nijmegen player turned Muslu Nalbantoglu, Liverpool should be considering Lijnders as the man to take over the big shoes of Klopp despite Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard's name being thrown into the mix.
Speaking in an interview on the Blood Red Podcast, Nalbantoglu said: “What he had in his mind with the NEC players was not realistic.
“Of course, if you work with Mohamed Salah and the names of Liverpool, it is easy to do it with those players.
“His energy and his training were very good. Everybody loved him and still loves him at the club.”
“He loves football and you can see the passion in training,” he added. “He can never sit down and he was always standing.
“There were trainings that we have never seen before. If the players were at a better level, maybe he would still be here.
“When Jurgen Klopp leaves Liverpool, Pep can take over with those players for sure.”
