Liverpool’s Two-Man Successor Shortlist: Amorim and Nagelsmann on Radar if Alonso Unavailable

Liverpool Football Club has identified Ruben Amorim and Julian Nagelsmann as potential alternatives to Xabi Alonso should the former midfield maestro be unavailable to succeed Jurgen Klopp.

While Alonso remains the top choice for Klopp’s successor, Liverpool is considering other options due to Alonso’s success with Bayer Leverkusen, attracting interest from various top clubs, including his former side.

With Bayern Munich reportedly eyeing Alonso and Leverkusen, the 42-year-old manager has three potential paths: joining Bayern, staying at Leverkusen, or returning to his beloved former club, Liverpool.

Alonso’s tenure at Leverkusen has been marked by an unbeaten season, leading Die Werkself to dominance across competitions. His tactical acumen, incorporating a blend of counter-pressing, possession-based play, and direct attacking approaches, has reshaped Leverkusen’s style of play.

However, in case Alonso’s availability is in question, Liverpool has identified Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim and former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann as strong alternatives.

Amorim, whose Sporting CP side currently sits joint-top in Liga Portugal, employs a balanced approach to possession, combining elements of counter-possession philosophy and direct play. His tactical setup, utilizing a 5-2-3 formation, emphasizes building from the back and swift transitions.

Meanwhile, Nagelsmann, currently the manager of the Germany national team, offers a wealth of experience and tactical versatility. Known for his innovative tactics and ability to adapt to various oppositions, Nagelsmann presents a compelling option for Liverpool’s managerial role.

As Liverpool navigates its succession planning, the club acknowledges the strength of alternatives in Amorim and Nagelsmann, providing strategic options in case Alonso’s availability becomes uncertain.
