A setback to Klopp’s succession plan comes when a Liverpool rival team begins contract negotiations.



Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi is being mentioned as a potential replacement for Jurgen Klopp, who is leaving Liverpool in the summer, along with Xabi Alonso.

He is apparently Barcelona’s top pick to take Xavi’s position when he departs in the summer, although Brighton hasn’t reportedly gotten any bids yet, according to talkSPORT. De Zerbi signed a contract with the team in September 2022, and it expires in June 2026. Brighton has discussed offering him a new contract in order to further protect their interests.

Tony Bloom, the club’s owner, is planning summer additions, and they have a great track record of signing up unknown talent. Recently, De Zerbi discussed his future, saying, “It’s an honor to hear that the big teams are interested in me, but my focus is on my work day by day.”

Regarding the future? My goals are to compete as best I can, comprehend the plan, and then operate seamlessly with a large team. Throughout my career, I would like to compete for and win the Champions League, Bundesliga, Premier League, and Serie A, but there is never a need to travel.

Although De Zerbi has been mentioned as a potential replacement for Klopp at Anfield, Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso is presently the clear favorite to take over at Anfield. The former Liverpool midfielder is also being pursued by Bayern Munich. De Zerbi has expressed admiration for Alonso’s efforts in Germany.

According to De Zerbi, “He is doing an extraordinary job,” in an interview with Cronache Di Spogliatoio. “What a great team he has. The fashion is well defined. Three years ago, he was already an excellent coach for Real Sociedad’s second team, and he is now demonstrating his abilities at a prestigious club like Bayer Leverkusen.”

When asked if he had any news regarding signing a new contract with Brighton, De Zerbi said, “No.” I’m only thinking about the final stretch of the season. We’re going to play a historic portion of the season and contend. Our goal in the Premier League is to qualify for Europe, which is the same as it was the previous season.

“We will play in the Europa League round of sixteen. We play in the FA Cup, and we recall the loss at Wembley the previous season. Because of this, I watch my players closely.”
