These Liverpool fans have been discussing if Pep Lijnders could one day become Jurgen Klopp’s replacement.
Anfield Watch asked Liverpool fans if they could see Lijnders taking over from Klopp when the manager eventually leaves. This would seem like a pretty safe bet, considering Lijnders will likely be learning from the German manager right now.
Many Liverpool fans believe Lijnders would be a suitable replacement for the German, with the eyes firmly on him.
Here are some of the comments from the Liverpool fans on Twitter:

What Do We Think?
With Liverpool 14 points clear of their rivals at the top of the Premier League table, we don’t think any Reds fan is going to want to see Klopp leave any time soon. However, there will come a day when the German decides to call time at Anfield, so lining up a replacement early shouldn’t be seen as a bad thing.
