The current Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou is a massive fan of Liverpool. The 57-year-old Merseyside fan would love to be in charge at Anfield, according to Scottish football pundit Andy Walker.
Speaking to Go Radio via Football Scotland, Walker said
“I think his dream job. If Ange Postecoglou was to go , I think he is a big Liverpool man.”
The Scottish pundit also said
“But would he get the opportunity to go to Liverpool? Having said that I think he is absolutely committed at the moment to his life in Glasgow.”
Postecoglou has done an amazing job in the Celtic. He has wrestled the title back from Rangers last season in his first campaign. The manager helped Celtic to be back at the top of the table.
The former Australian national team coach has changed The Bhoys into a competitive possession-based football team.
Having said that it is very much unlikely that the 57-year-old would be the next Liverpool manager.
Both the fans and FSG are supporting the German coach. A single season cannot affect Klopp’s legacy and his impact on the Merseyside giants.
Can Ange Postecoglou replace Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool?
Klopp introduced “gegenpressen” in English football. The German genius transforms the Merseyside giants into the most deadly counter-attacking team in the world. LFC scored most goals in fast breaks than any other club in PL.
According to the premierleague.com,
In the 2017/18 season, the Reds have scored 9 goals, in the 2018/19 season 6 goals, and in the 2019/20 season, they scored 9 goals from fast breaks that happened in the opposition half.
The Reds manager also developed a strong defense. The introduction of Dutch international Virgil van Dijk, Joe Matip, Andrew Robertson, Fabinho, and goalkeeper Allison are all Klopp’s signings that shaped the Merseyside giant’s defense. The German has also introduced an academy graduate named Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has become a key figure at LFC.
Ange Postecoglou has been impressive for the last few years but filling Klopp’s shoe as a Liverpool manager is too much to ask for a manager who has no experience in managing European top 5 leagues.
