Former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has warned his former club about the future of the club when Jurgen Klopp leaves at the end of his contract.
Who replaces the German boss is something the club must decide carefully so as not to make the wrong choice. Jurgen Klopp’s contact with the Reds team expires in 2024 and the man who is tipped to replace him is Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.
Glen Johnson noted that ever since Steven Gerrard became a manager, his only goal is to take obvert from Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool and the club seem to be thinking that direction.
Steven Gerrard started his managerial career at Liverpool with the youth team and he impressed before going to take over at Rangers in 2018 and was given the task to dethrone Celtic as champions of the Scottish league and that is still being worked upon.
With Jurgen Klopp’s contract running out in December 2024, it is not a coincidence that Steven Gerrard’s contract with Rangers will also be ruining out in December 2024.

Meanwhile, the former Borussia Dortmund boss has not hidden the fact that he will not be extending his stay with the Merseyside outfit which means the position will be vacant for Steven Gerrard to take over immediately he leaves Rangers.
Johnson has no doubts that Gerrard would be the right man for the job but he will be under pressure to produce the level of achievements by Jurgen Klopp.
“Yeah definitely. He’s Mr Liverpool, he loves the city in and out and he’s similar to Lamps, he’s got the right temperament for it,” he told Compare.bet
“It’s one of those roles, where, with Liverpool doing so well, who would want to step into Klopp’s shoes when he leaves?
“It’s a difficult one, you kind of can’t win
“It’s all about timing though, we have no idea what’s going to happen in four years’ time.
“But when the door does open if Gerrard thinks it’s the right time, I’m sure he’ll take the job.”
