Adam Lallana Draws Parallels Between Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool Exit and Steven Gerrard’s Departure, Hints at Roberto De Zerbi as Potential Replacement

Brighton midfielder Adam Lallana, who previously played under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, has drawn parallels between Klopp’s announcement of leaving the club at the end of the season and Steven Gerrard’s previous departure.

Lallana, a key figure in Klopp’s team during his time at Liverpool, highlighted the transformative impact the German manager had on the club, winning both the Champions League and Premier League.

He suggests that Klopp’s exit might pose challenges for Liverpool similar to the impact felt when club legend Gerrard left in 2015.

Lallana has also weighed in on the possibility of his current Brighton manager, Roberto De Zerbi, taking over at Liverpool.

Expressing that it “wouldn’t surprise” him if De Zerbi joined Liverpool, Lallana spoke highly of the Italian coach, considering him one of the best in the world.

He acknowledged the current trend where top managers are under constant pressure, creating a domino effect in the managerial landscape.

Despite the potential move making sense, Lallana admitted feeling uneasy when he first heard about Klopp’s departure, a sentiment he also experienced when Gerrard left Liverpool.

De Zerbi’s Link to Liverpool and Other Managerial Opportunities

Discussing De Zerbi’s potential move, Lallana stated that many clubs are eyeing the Brighton manager, linking him not only to Liverpool but also mentioning the ongoing speculation about him being a potential new manager at Manchester United.

Lallana highlighted the pressure on managers in the current football landscape, noting that De Zerbi’s desire to return to coaching in Italy could influence his decision on managerial opportunities.

Looking Ahead: Lallana Wishes Klopp a Fitting Farewell

Adam Lallana expressed relief that Klopp has several months to prepare for his exit, allowing him to receive the recognition he deserves.

Lallana hopes this extended period will provide Liverpool with the boost they need to secure additional titles, while playfully expressing a desire for it not to be the Europa League.

Amidst uncertainties about managerial transitions, including the potential move of De Zerbi, Lallana emphasized the monumental impact that figures like Klopp leaving can have on a football club.
