Highlights

Jurgen Klopp has announced he will leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

Klopp said he told the club over the summer that he would leave, but only informed players this morning.

Klopp: "I realized my resources are not endless. I wanted to put everything into this last season, have a break, whatever, and then stop."

Klopp: "The players' reaction was top, really good. I'm here fully here, I answer a thousand questions if you want me too."

The backroom staff including Pep Lijnders are also leaving at the end of the season.

Klopp: "The summer was difficult...realizing how good this team can be gave me joy. I love each minute at this moment."

Klopp has strongly denied his departure has anything to do with the club owners FSG.

Most fans seem to want Xabi Alonso to replace Klopp as the next Liverpool manager.

Klopp: "What we've built is an incredibly strong structure. It's one of the reasons I can leave."

Billy Hogan: "I want to set an expectation first - it's a process we will go through to ensure we've looked at all the info, data, and done our proper due diligence."

Claims that players only found out this morning adds to suspicions on the bizarre timing of the announcement.

The next manager will inherit a great young team with a lot of potential and experience already gained.

Klopp deserves us to believe what he said, he deserves us to believe his reasoning.

The next week of big games vs Chelsea and Arsenal are massive, bad results will see blame immediately go to the announcement timing.

Whoever the next manager is, they are walking into a very good dressing room full of brilliant players.

play00:00

what is up my friends I would say you're

play00:02

very welcome along but that doesn't feel

play00:04

the right sentiment to start off today's

play00:07

show um sorry my alarm's gone off on my

play00:11

phone there um yeah doesn't feel like

play00:13

the right sentiment to start today's

play00:15

stream we're going to give you live

play00:17

updates from uran club's press

play00:18

conference I'm going to feed you the

play00:20

quotes as they come into to us um you've

play00:22

probably watched or at least some of you

play00:24

will have seen shvy Alonzo's press

play00:26

conference with lcus earlier on H I've

play00:28

been reading through some of the of

play00:30

course before we go live just to see how

play00:32

people are feeling um there's a couple

play00:35

of people who are putting names into the

play00:37

chat that quite frankly ludicrous I see

play00:40

the likes of zidan's name being

play00:41

mentioned I mean look he's just not a

play00:43

Liverpool Football Club manager he isn't

play00:45

you

play00:46

know today's about two things really I

play00:49

guess today is about um acknowledging

play00:52

everything Jurgen has done for the

play00:54

football

play00:55

club um trying to process where we're

play00:58

all at and I guess we got to look

play01:01

forwards then as well look to the Future

play01:03

what that might hold what it might look

play01:05

like I mean I've said for years on this

play01:07

channel continuity has always been

play01:09

really important and it's one thing

play01:11

we've had that maybe other clubs haven't

play01:12

had in the last few years is that

play01:14

certainty of of manager and Direction um

play01:18

over the last couple of hours I've been

play01:20

trying to put things together and make

play01:22

it make sense and you know try to see if

play01:26

if there's reasons that are a little bit

play01:28

outside of what we're being told and the

play01:30

truth is there's probably a whole

play01:32

combination of things uh I don't really

play01:35

believe in conspiracy theories around

play01:37

stuff like this you know the big

play01:41

question I've been left asking all day

play01:43

is why now with the announcement because

play01:47

apparently he told the club in the

play01:48

summer so all I can think of um putting

play01:51

my rational brain on is just to think

play01:54

that maybe a leak was going to come out

play01:56

or something and that that's why it had

play01:58

to be now and some more information

play02:00

again from earlier on is that apparently

play02:02

the players were only told this morning

play02:05

um the club knew in the summer but the

play02:08

players apparently according to reports

play02:10

only found out this morning like the

play02:12

rest of us which uh again I can only

play02:15

sometimes feel like these things

play02:18

are are maybe forced to a time frame

play02:22

because of leaks or something I don't

play02:24

know but here's some quotes coming in uh

play02:26

I've been doing this for 24 years said

play02:28

klopp I've invested everything I have I

play02:30

realized that my resources are not

play02:32

endless um I wanted to put everything

play02:35

into this last season have a break

play02:38

whatever and then stop klopp said you

play02:40

realize yourself you're not a young

play02:42

rabbit anymore you can't jump as high as

play02:44

you did it's not that I thought about it

play02:47

on purpose it just happened then I

play02:48

started thinking about it and this club

play02:51

with all the super things we have this

play02:53

club needs a top manager so a couple of

play02:56

things that strike me about this is I do

play02:59

love that Juran

play03:01

klopp still sorted out this new team

play03:04

that he still done what he promised

play03:06

which was to leave the club in a healthy

play03:08

state to leave the club in a good

play03:10

position for whoever the next manager is

play03:12

that comes in and for all the other

play03:15

great achievements that jurgen's given

play03:17

us we have to say this is one that the

play03:19

man's lived up to as well you know he

play03:21

promised us that he would leave the club

play03:23

in a better place some when he found it

play03:24

and I think we can safely say that the

play03:26

man has lived up to his word on that one

play03:29

some more quotes coming in

play03:32

um I told the club the decision and then

play03:35

my coaches uh now everybody knows it and

play03:38

everybody believes me that I love the

play03:40

club I don't take it lightly I am

play03:42

convinced it is right so I guess the

play03:46

question I for you guys

play03:48

is why do you think the decision was

play03:52

announced today because that's the what

play03:54

for all the rest of it I can figure out

play03:56

I absolutely can believe urgen klopp um

play04:00

has run out of energy I believe that of

play04:03

course it's understandable um Liverpool

play04:07

are going to look to appoint the

play04:08

sporting director that's more news

play04:10

that's come out uh over the next few

play04:13

weeks or months ahead of an appointment

play04:15

of a manager that's another bit of news

play04:16

that's come out from inside the club um

play04:20

George smka will be leaving his role at

play04:22

the end of The Campaign as well pep

play04:23

Linder and the coaching team they're set

play04:25

to depart at the end of the season but

play04:28

look I can't be the only one who starts

play04:30

to think

play04:31

about Salah situation Trent situation

play04:35

Virg situation hope that they're not as

play04:39

shocked as the rest of us are orbe of

play04:41

course they are if they've already found

play04:42

out today I'm sure they're every bit as

play04:43

surprised as you and I

play04:46

but from fsg's perspective look I don't

play04:49

think there's conspiracy theories I

play04:50

don't think there's a Fallout I don't

play04:52

think I I genuinely don't believe it's

play04:55

anything like that I don't think it's to

play04:56

do with the documentary I don't think

play04:58

it's anything to do with transfer

play05:00

budgets or anything I I really just feel

play05:03

like Jurgen clubs earned the right for

play05:05

us to take him a face value with what he

play05:08

said the man has never willingly let us

play05:12

wrong or mis uh misdirected us so I want

play05:16

to give him that respect that he

play05:18

deserves it's just the timing of it just

play05:20

feels very very very unusual to

play05:24

me uh someone said because we're not

play05:26

playing I don't know what that means we

play05:28

literally played Wednesday we're playing

play05:29

playing again Sunday we're playing again

play05:31

Wednesday we're playing again Sunday

play05:32

after I it's not like we're in the

play05:34

middle of an international Break um you

play05:37

know why wasn't it last week we had the

play05:39

11 days off when everybody was on a

play05:41

break it could have been an easier time

play05:43

to drop that news and then I guess deal

play05:46

with it during a time where we had no

play05:48

games I

play05:49

mean it is going to be a

play05:52

distraction there's no way to dress that

play05:55

up it's going to take up every press

play05:57

conference it's going to be every

play05:58

interview with the the players

play06:00

it's I I I just I find the timing very

play06:04

odd from a PR

play06:06

perspective um right more quotes from

play06:08

urgen klopp he said the relief was there

play06:11

when I made the decision that was

play06:13

another thing I realized today it is

play06:16

mixed H I'm not as emotional as I will

play06:18

be when it's over I had to tell the

play06:20

owners then the supporters and players

play06:23

the players reaction was top really good

play06:26

uh I'm here fully here I answer a

play06:28

thousand questions if you want me too

play06:29

but then it's until the end of the

play06:31

season uh I'm fully in some talks last

play06:35

days to tell uh people slightly earlier

play06:38

uh some tears but that's normal after

play06:40

such a long time it's the right thing to

play06:42

do uh the club fails time to plan for

play06:45

the future while we're in the present

play06:47

klopp goes on to say the players didn't

play06:49

have a lot of questions we have a really

play06:52

strong bond we're professionals uh and

play06:55

the agreement we have on both sides is

play06:56

for one year uh a year at a time

play06:59

basically Al it's a real agreement and

play07:01

the boys see it like that they're in a

play07:03

good mood so

play07:07

look I do look look I love his honesty

play07:10

by the way I love that he's not he knows

play07:14

if he can't do it at 100% he can't do it

play07:17

and I love that about him and I love

play07:18

that he's he's asked himself those

play07:21

questions you know um that makes him the

play07:24

man he is to me if he can't do it 100%

play07:26

he's not going to half ass he's not

play07:28

going to phone it in that's just not the

play07:30

way klopp is um he spoke about his

play07:32

energy levels earlier on and you know

play07:34

how it he is that life for the club he

play07:38

is the energy he is sets the mood sets

play07:39

the tempo sets the vibe and you know I

play07:45

understand him when he said if he can't

play07:47

commit to it if he can't give it a

play07:49

100% uh a full energy he probably feels

play07:52

like he'll do us a disservice although

play07:54

we'd never feel that way obviously about

play07:57

uran um I am

play07:59

genuinely just a little bit taken back

play08:01

though

play08:02

because I guess selfishly and it is

play08:05

selfishly you know I I thought we had

play08:07

him till 2026 cuz we knew he was never

play08:10

getting fired that was never going to

play08:11

happen so it was always going to be

play08:13

jurgen's decision when he decides to

play08:15

call it a day and and we deserve to give

play08:18

him that respect and respect his

play08:19

decision um it's just the timing part

play08:22

that's the part to keep going back

play08:25

over uh jurer went on to say it's

play08:28

different to other situations usually

play08:30

when we say goodbye it's because a

play08:32

manager has been sacked I have to uh

play08:35

constantly always think about is it

play08:37

still right because I said I won't be

play08:39

manager uh I said won't be the manager

play08:42

won't be an excuse we fight for

play08:43

everything that's the good news and look

play08:46

we are fighting for everything

play08:48

and the time that he announce leaving we

play08:51

know as we say here right now we're in a

play08:53

cup final we're in a good position in

play08:56

another domestic cup we're in the best

play08:57

position we could be in the top of The

play08:59

League table and we're in a good

play09:01

position in Europe so who knows how we

play09:03

end this season

play09:05

but he deserves the big send off he

play09:08

deserves the trophies he deserves the

play09:10

fairy tale ending and I've no doubt that

play09:12

the players the staff the coaches the

play09:14

fans and everybody involved in the

play09:16

football club are going to go out of the

play09:18

way to make sure that he leaves on a big

play09:21

note from a a very selfish Irish

play09:23

perspective the idea of maybe looking at

play09:25

it and

play09:26

thinking his last game could be

play09:29

in Dublin his last game could be

play09:32

hopefully to see Liverpool lift another

play09:35

European trophy

play09:38

um complete the set pretty much Europa

play09:41

League champions league hopefully

play09:43

another Premier League H he would have

play09:45

done it all if he can do that

play09:47

and yeah I'm I'm genuinely

play09:51

just I think we all feel like we're in

play09:53

mourning a little bit here and that

play09:54

people might think this is over reaction

play09:56

from all of us but this is what the man

play09:58

has been to us right he's been the one

play10:01

constant in our footballing lives over

play10:03

the last8 nine years he's been the

play10:05

Messiah he's been the dream he's made us

play10:07

dream he's made us believe along with

play10:09

him and it was not an easy task when he

play10:12

came to the football club to get us back

play10:14

to where we are uh and that's about him

play10:17

his energy his passion his Focus his

play10:20

determination his Spirit you know

play10:22

everything that makes us love the man

play10:24

for good for bad we buted head with him

play10:25

at times we've disagreed with him he's

play10:27

called the fans out But ultimately it's

play10:30

all that I love it's always been all

play10:31

that I love from both sides and you know

play10:34

watching the likes of John gibens from

play10:36

the anfield rap speaking about him on

play10:38

sky and watching former players and

play10:40

everybody's the same thing you know even

play10:42

see the fans being interviewed outside

play10:44

anfield it's just a sense

play10:47

of a a sense of loss at the moment you

play10:50

know and thankfully uran's healthy and

play10:52

safe and you know hopefully has 30 40 50

play10:56

more years left on this planet but you

play10:59

you know a big chapter of our life's

play11:00

coming to a close as Liverpool fans and

play11:02

I didn't live through Paisley or

play11:04

shankley or uh any of the other

play11:07

legendary managers outside of Kenny

play11:09

dougle so this is this is yeah this

play11:14

is It's sad that I can't hide it Lads it

play11:18

is

play11:20

sad uh Club speaking about a potential

play11:23

successor this is what he had to say uh

play11:26

why should why should I in football some

play11:29

people you don't see uh often you live

play11:33

this business and it looks like do all

play11:35

the work and I don't and I can't what

play11:38

we've built is an incredibly strong

play11:39

structure it's one of the reasons I can

play11:41

leave klopp said so many people work

play11:43

here with the idea to find a perfect

play11:45

solution for Liverpool last thing they

play11:47

need is advice from an old man leaving

play11:50

uh Billy Hogan then sted to speak Billy

play11:52

Hogan is said probably to put into words

play11:55

significant how significant this is uran

play11:58

talked about leaving the club in a

play11:59

better place than he found it in 2015 no

play12:02

doubt he's done that as he said he'll be

play12:04

here for months a prospective news is

play12:07

sad and supporter share that it is sad

play12:10

um yans thank you for your Super Chat

play12:12

yans has come in and said sad day for

play12:14

Liverpool yuran Klo has been fantastic

play12:16

for you

play12:18

um

play12:20

look there

play12:23

is there is life after uran as hard as

play12:26

that seems to Fathom and think about now

play12:29

you know we will immediately again turn

play12:31

to thinking about a successor and I'm

play12:33

sure you've seen Javy Alonzo's interview

play12:35

or press conference today at

play12:37

lusin

play12:39

um if you're asking me for my reading of

play12:42

that situation I feel

play12:44

like people will focus on the things

play12:46

that Alonzo did say but I think it's the

play12:48

things he didn't say that certainly

play12:51

caught my attention um and look he is

play12:54

that I don't care what anybody else

play12:56

thinks this is my opinion so I can can

play12:58

only say what I feel but to me there is

play13:01

only one name and that name is Alonzo

play13:04

and he is the one right now in my

play13:06

opinion he has the gravy task to be

play13:08

Liverpool manager he will have the Buy

play13:10

in from the fans he has a brand of

play13:12

football that I think we will enjoy

play13:14

playing um he's a young hungry coach so

play13:18

I hope and I don't mean any disrespect

play13:21

to Leverkusen because I know he is a lot

play13:23

to play for this season with them but we

play13:26

need to go after him it has has to be

play13:29

him I know deserve his name will be

play13:31

mentioned others will be mentioned it

play13:33

has to be him for me he's the guy he's

play13:36

the one um and it as much as nobody like

play13:40

we spoke about replacing Salah right and

play13:42

we've said nobody's going to come in to

play13:43

replace Mo it's not possible nobody's

play13:46

going to do Jurgen nobody's going to be

play13:47

Jurgen nobody but all you can do I guess

play13:50

is as Jurgen to have that structure in

play13:52

place look to do the right things any

play13:54

manager coming in whoever it might be is

play13:57

going to inherit a great young team with

play14:00

a lot of potential um a lot of

play14:03

experience gained already and hopefully

play14:06

a winning mentality so I want to see how

play14:08

you guys feel about the next manager I

play14:10

know it maybe feels dirty or wrong to

play14:12

talk about it but we have to you know

play14:15

the club have to get their ducks in a

play14:17

row right now a sporting director has to

play14:19

be appointed and then obviously a

play14:21

structure put in place for who that new

play14:22

manager is going to be H app Anda said

play14:25

Craig Club puts the focus on him and

play14:27

pressure off the players all oo drives

play14:29

them for more of a final push for

play14:31

historic season genius timing from all

play14:35

um I've got to say mate I agree with a

play14:38

lot of what you've written I I just

play14:40

disagree on the timing of it I don't

play14:41

feel it is genius timing at all U I

play14:44

don't know if it's good or bad timing

play14:45

actually you know we I guess the proof

play14:47

of that is going to be over the next few

play14:49

weeks um but it is going to take up a

play14:52

lot

play14:53

of column inches a lot of time a lot of

play14:57

um question

play14:59

questions uh shaan McLean thank you for

play15:02

your super sticker uh lots of shouts in

play15:04

the chat for Alonzo as well uh Brighton

play15:07

manager said Mando look the Zerby I'm

play15:10

sure you know you don't want to be

play15:11

disrespectful here as well because

play15:12

Alonzo's in a job theer's in the job so

play15:15

a lot of the names been mentioned win a

play15:17

job but um I'm glad that I'm not really

play15:21

seeing Steven Gerard's name bandied

play15:23

around anywhere because that would just

play15:24

be foolish from the club and I I don't

play15:27

expect them to be that naive silly at

play15:29

this point of fsg's ownership so I don't

play15:32

expect Gerard to be getting the phone

play15:34

call anyway um for me look as I said it

play15:36

is just one man it's Alonzo if you can't

play15:38

get Alonzo desery but I I would have no

play15:42

faith in a nagles man I'd have no faith

play15:44

in a tle they're just not Liverpool

play15:46

managers to me they don't have that

play15:48

gravy Tas and

play15:51

um I don't know I don't even know what

play15:53

to expect now like are we going to get a

play15:55

manager to come in for another 3 four

play15:57

years does Liverpool Po's future change

play15:59

now are we going to you know the modern

play16:02

trait is managers don't stay around for

play16:03

nine years managers don't do like what

play16:06

Alex Ferguson did arson Wenger did so

play16:10

what's the new Liverpool going to look

play16:11

like as a club's

play16:14

perspective uh some more stuff from

play16:16

Billy

play16:17

Hogan he

play16:21

said first time we had a chat about it

play16:24

decision from a pro and personal

play16:26

standpoint I could see from my

play16:27

perspective knowing him uh this was a

play16:30

decision he was comfortable with and

play16:32

believed in uh when your colleague and

play16:34

friend comes to it I support it and I

play16:36

respect it this is about everybody

play16:38

seeing what happens outside but the

play16:41

amount of pressure for 24 years now so I

play16:43

was surprised in a sense but I

play16:45

understood it a sad day but also credit

play16:47

to uran he's come to the decision he

play16:49

wants it will be H an orderly process to

play16:53

replace him Billy Hogan goes on to say

play16:55

the same process that brought us Jurgen

play16:58

will be done now our ownership Mike

play17:00

Gordon in particular will be part of

play17:02

that process but I won't be uh it won't

play17:05

be a running commentary we operate when

play17:08

we're ready and talk about things we

play17:10

won't get into the name game klopp went

play17:13

on to say the summer was difficult now

play17:16

that we had a lot of time um to put feet

play17:19

on the table we worked to bring in the

play17:21

right players when we got them it was

play17:23

okay summer training prep outstanding

play17:25

realizing how good this team can be gave

play17:28

me joy I love each minute at this

play17:32

moment uh David says leig manager look

play17:36

for me it is just um it's just one guy

play17:39

it is it's Javi Alonzo he is the guy he

play17:45

is he's the name and I've made calls

play17:48

today he's the name on everyone's list

play17:50

I'm not saying he's the guy I'm not

play17:51

telling you he's going to be the manager

play17:54

but he's the name H and the pro as Billy

play17:56

Hogan has said the process will start um

play17:59

from what's being briefed it looks like

play18:01

a sporting director will go to be

play18:03

priority number one to put that in place

play18:05

and then you know the conversations but

play18:10

here's here's what I'm thinking so the

play18:13

decision was told to the owners in the

play18:14

summer absolutely respect that and

play18:17

understand that but they've had from the

play18:19

summer till now so you

play18:21

know I'm also not naive so do I believe

play18:25

that there hasn't been anything any

play18:26

conversations yet behind the scenes

play18:29

no because I don't think anybody would

play18:31

be

play18:32

that uh flippant with such a big

play18:35

decision such a big business so I think

play18:37

as soon as uran gave the club his

play18:39

decision and obviously the club

play18:41

respected it like they've always done

play18:43

same way they've always respected if he

play18:44

wanted a new deal that new deal would

play18:46

always be putting the table for him so

play18:48

right now it just feels

play18:49

like I wonder if if those that short

play18:52

list is already drawn up you would

play18:54

imagine it would be right at this

play18:57

point

play18:59

but Alonzo so inexperienced he is and he

play19:02

isn't Sam I

play19:06

mean he's not a manager with the

play19:09

experience of a clap or Mourinho or uh

play19:12

unai emry or somebody

play19:14

but he's got the right credentials for

play19:17

me the right brand of football the right

play19:18

football and brain and erned is right I

play19:22

know he's only been at lers in a short

play19:24

time but you know he was at Saia dad

play19:26

earned the stripes came into l

play19:28

has taken on the machine that is Bayern

play19:31

Munich and so far so good for Leverkusen

play19:35

in the league and I'll would just say

play19:37

from a standing of attractiveness to

play19:39

players coming in and uh to Liverpool

play19:42

fans and I guess for that next

play19:45

generation of

play19:46

manager I feel like it's the right one

play19:48

for me I just feel like Alonzo is is the

play19:51

guy um I like the brand of football he

play19:53

plays there are certainly good coaches

play19:56

in the world at the minute and we'll see

play19:57

some crazy names bandied about as well

play20:00

but you know him and Zerby probably

play20:02

going to be the two leading names uh for

play20:05

me and but again this is about you guys

play20:08

as well uh klopp said it was not my idea

play20:11

when I signed a new deal at the time I

play20:13

was convinced I would go until

play20:15

2026 I misjudged that I thought my

play20:18

energy was endless but it's not uh Klo

play20:21

on H Enrique comments I saw he said it

play20:24

was about FSG FSG has nothing to do with

play20:27

it yeah by the way way another reason

play20:29

why I think

play20:31

that Jose Enrique needs to just piss off

play20:34

honestly I seen his little cringy

play20:37

interview uh that he gave with Sky where

play20:41

again he's looking for sinister reasons

play20:43

when he doesn't know like some things

play20:46

even I you know I don't I don't turn

play20:49

into anger and hatred I don't look for

play20:52

scapegoat here I don't think there is a

play20:54

scapegoat I don't think there's a big

play20:56

bad bogey man in the background

play20:58

I think what you're going have said is

play21:00

is true and we owe him that belief so

play21:05

again it's another reason I think again

play21:07

why Jose Enrique can just [Β __Β ] off

play21:08

honestly he's just a hanger on uh and

play21:11

I'm glad cop mentioned that FSC has

play21:13

nothing to do with it because even on

play21:15

social media I see Linda puty who was

play21:18

like you know saying they were

play21:21

devastated you know when yuran Club told

play21:24

them the news and um I I don't believe

play21:28

do was a Fallout if I'm being honest I

play21:29

don't I don't believe that side of it I

play21:31

don't think that there's they've but a

play21:33

head over transfer fees or the direction

play21:36

of the club I honestly

play21:38

think all right this comparison we're

play21:41

about to make is a stretch but hear me

play21:43

out I've said to you guys many times on

play21:46

my streams

play21:48

that you can't get half ARS Craig you

play21:51

can't have the lunatic who's happy and

play21:54

screaming and shouting without the angry

play21:56

Craig and I've told you guys the same

play21:59

sometimes if I'm flat I'm flat and I

play22:01

can't lie I can't fake it

play22:04

and the 1% of me that has that spark

play22:09

like uran has I do believe him when he

play22:11

says it's about the energy levels

play22:13

because it takes a lot to be that leader

play22:17

and you can see he is the leader of the

play22:19

club the leader of the dressing room the

play22:21

leader of all of us and he won't half

play22:24

ass it and he won't phone it in and I

play22:26

love him for his honesty on that

play22:29

uh klopp continued with some more

play22:30

comments said it would be easy in this

play22:32

job to blame the owners and say FSG

play22:34

should spend more uh was I always happy

play22:37

with that no but they built two stands

play22:39

the access center for me was the next 40

play22:42

50 years we did it properly the

play22:44

Liverpool way which I love that we

play22:46

didn't win H Champions Leagues not down

play22:48

to money klopp said we got 97 points in

play22:52

94 points uh and didn't win the league

play22:55

and didn't win more Champions League it

play22:56

wasn't down to signing one player if you

play22:58

want to blame anyone blame me having a

play23:00

team that could do all that was

play23:02

exceptional clap on his future plans no

play23:05

club or country for a year no other

play23:07

English Club ever I can promise that

play23:09

we'll slow down with quotes now uh said

play23:11

Connor to me and I'm just reading that

play23:13

out like I'm Ron Burgundy who will read

play23:15

anything on a teleprompter I'm Ron

play23:18

Burgundy I'm not putting in the next bit

play23:21

and devastated said Emma but respect the

play23:23

club for making this huge decision and

play23:25

if FSG even sniff anywhere near Mourinho

play23:27

will lose my [Β __Β ] Carl said wish I had a

play23:30

ticket for Liverpool's last home game I

play23:32

can only imagine mate uh how much

play23:34

they're going to start changing hands

play23:38

for uh by the way

play23:40

interestingly somebody commented on

play23:42

social media build a statue or klopp

play23:46

deserves a statue and we did notice that

play23:48

Linda liked that post again not trying

play23:51

to say that that's saying he's making a

play23:53

statue but um there you go you know at

play23:59

least they understand what we think of

play24:02

them and how highly we regard

play24:06

them klopp just wiped a tear from his

play24:09

eyes to John power I think we've all

play24:10

done that a bit today right and I know

play24:13

I've

play24:14

certainly I felt like all of you I'm

play24:17

just in shock I did not expect to get up

play24:19

today to that news um at all not like I

play24:23

don't think anyone had a sniff it was

play24:26

kept very very very very very

play24:29

quiet even a few journalists and stuff

play24:32

that I messages and conversations with

play24:34

say nobody had a Scooby-Doo like nobody

play24:37

uh Billy Hogan on potential successors

play24:38

he said I want to set an expectation

play24:41

first it's a process we will go through

play24:44

and the way this club operates we will

play24:46

ensure we've looked at all the info data

play24:49

and done our proper due diligence and

play24:51

then we'll make a decision and we'll

play24:53

have an announcement I can't commit to a

play24:55

timeline on it so based off what Billy

play24:59

Hogan has said and you know reading

play25:00

between the

play25:01

lines seems like that there isn't a

play25:06

successor that's ready to go next week

play25:08

let's say we're not going to hear about

play25:09

a name and I guess the process does

play25:12

start now well I hope that they start

play25:14

the top of that list and start looking

play25:16

at the stats data information around

play25:18

Alonzo

play25:20

because I think with the style of

play25:22

players we have with the club as well

play25:24

it's important that we do bring in a

play25:25

manager that would at least play into

play25:28

those strengths of the players that are

play25:29

at the club as well as of course putting

play25:31

their own stamp on it over a bit of

play25:34

time H and the summer clock Club fresh

play25:36

and ready to go for another couple of

play25:38

years what's change after a couple of

play25:39

months is he

play25:41

drained mate I can't give you that

play25:43

answer and you

play25:47

know I don't know the answer I don't

play25:50

like I'm not going to sit here and

play25:51

speculate as to I have to takee what

play25:54

klopp says the face value because he's

play25:56

earned that trust

play26:00

um yeah that's I I I'm not going to look

play26:03

for tinf foil hat moments or a finger of

play26:06

blame here it's just it's a

play26:09

disappointing day and we've got to

play26:10

respect juran's decision you know what's

play26:13

best for him and his family and it is an

play26:15

all-encompassing gig man that runs you

play26:17

down and ages people quickly and I guess

play26:22

you get one life you have to spend time

play26:24

with your family and you have to

play26:25

recuperate you have to rest up and

play26:28

maybe he needs another project in a year

play26:30

or so down the line maybe some other job

play26:32

will come that will put the fire back in

play26:35

his belly whether that's the national

play26:37

team with Germany or whether that's

play26:38

another job in Europe who

play26:44

knows uh quote from klopp no Club No

play26:47

Country for the next year no English

play26:48

Club ever said East

play26:53

um yeah I I I I agree and I believe him

play26:57

of course I believe him you know now

play26:59

look I'm not going to hold him to the no

play27:03

job for the next year part because well

play27:06

look he said that when he left Dortmund

play27:07

and he ended up at us in four months so

play27:09

you never know you know but I do believe

play27:12

him 100% that he will not be back

play27:13

managing the club in England I

play27:15

absolutely believe that because how

play27:18

could he you know he where his Club he's

play27:20

our manager and if he's managing in

play27:23

England would only be at Liverpool

play27:24

Football Club so I guess I'm just

play27:27

grateful for the time we've had with

play27:28

them I'm looking forward to the time we

play27:31

still have with them but I'd be a liar

play27:33

if I said I'm not here who I'm not here

play27:35

when I'm not devastated today you

play27:40

know and I've also been thinking about

play27:42

what what life looks like moving forward

play27:44

because one conversation we've not

play27:46

really ever had to have over the last

play27:48

nine years as Liverpool fans is is a

play27:51

time for the manager to go you know we

play27:55

all said last year okay it was a poor

play27:57

poor year by Club standards but he's

play27:59

earned the right to have that poor year

play28:00

and let's see how this year goes and

play28:03

this year's going very well so far so

play28:06

yeah it's going to be strange because

play28:08

you know whoever comes in whether it's

play28:10

Alonzo or

play28:11

anybody they're not going to get as much

play28:14

wiggle room with fans as klopp because

play28:17

you could see from the off what klopp

play28:19

was building now that's been built now

play28:21

now the club's in the point where we

play28:22

need to continue to just challenge at

play28:24

the top and win trophy

play28:26

so

play28:28

I'm not looking forward to those

play28:29

conversations like let's say we did have

play28:30

a couple of bad results it's never

play28:33

been it's never been anything I've ever

play28:36

done in anfield agenda where I've ever

play28:38

considered the manager's job ever it's

play28:41

you won't find the thumbnail you won't

play28:42

find the title you won't find a video

play28:45

where I talk about klopp going of all

play28:47

the stuff people can label at me that's

play28:49

not one of

play28:51

them but what that look like next year

play28:55

when new manager in the hot seat

play28:58

how long do we give it before we get it

play29:00

right it's weird it's just so many

play29:04

questions uh for some reason I have this

play29:07

feeling last week no idea why said just

play29:09

a B I was unable to sleep last night

play29:12

right my wife woke up a couple of

play29:14

occasions and she just seen me awake

play29:16

kind of staring at the ceiling and she

play29:18

said to me it's that on your mind I said

play29:20

no I don't know what's up I can't sleep

play29:23

I don't know why there's nothing bugging

play29:25

me there's nothing scaring me there's no

play29:27

no Financial worries that I have on my

play29:29

header at and

play29:30

then today she comes into the room she

play29:34

said the lads rang kops leaving

play29:36

Liverpool you've got to go live and I

play29:41

thought that's weird like that was my

play29:43

first thought process was that weird

play29:47

cuz I just had

play29:49

this feeling but it wasn't about Club

play29:52

leaving but I just had this

play29:56

unease

play29:57

uh what else we got in the chat have

play29:59

Liverpool already got a manager lined up

play30:01

can you see you're going to leave him

play30:02

without a new manager being put in place

play30:05

so I don't know I don't believe we have

play30:08

a manager lined up I mean I think taking

play30:10

Billy Hogan and what he said a face

play30:12

value I do believe that the

play30:15

process maybe the process has started a

play30:17

little bit you know you would have to

play30:19

say in any Walk of Life if you've got a

play30:22

business and somebody your manager or

play30:24

your CEO or somebody tells you they're

play30:26

leaving you're gonna have to start the

play30:30

wheels turning in your brain you're

play30:31

gonna have to

play30:32

start saying okay do we bring in

play30:35

somebody now uh who's going to be so as

play30:39

much as I believe Billy Hogan that the

play30:41

process will be underway and they'll

play30:42

leave no stone and turned and they'll do

play30:44

all of their checks and I get all that

play30:47

but I think there has to be a few names

play30:49

that are certainly at the Forefront of

play30:51

their

play30:54

thoughts uh club's genuinely tired and I

play30:56

wouldn't be surprised that VAR was the

play30:59

final nail I

play31:01

don't I don't think there is a scapegoat

play31:04

in this I don't think there is one

play31:07

reason either I think it's a whole host

play31:10

of things

play31:11

from the scrutiny of managing a club the

play31:14

size of Liverpool for maybe the

play31:16

direction football is gone and the

play31:19

situation in the league and

play31:22

the running up a hill trying to catch

play31:24

Manchester City and there's probably a

play31:27

lot of things his health his

play31:29

family uh the intensity of the job and

play31:33

also as I say so many times you can only

play31:35

go back to the well so often your words

play31:37

as a manager or as a a

play31:40

motivator can only be said so many times

play31:43

before everything starts to go a little

play31:46

bit stale

play31:53

so I just again just want to thank you

play31:56

is the only thing that's gone through my

play31:57

brain at a minute like thank you for

play32:00

giving me and Us in my opinion the best

play32:04

best years of my life watching

play32:07

football uh

play32:14

yeah I think we all probably feel that

play32:16

way right maybe unless you're older and

play32:18

you you're around for the the days and

play32:20

the 70s and 80s but for me this is it

play32:23

like he's he's the that

play32:26

guy

play32:31

uh super leag are they trying to bring

play32:32

it back Lio nah that's not going to be

play32:34

it because the fans can can the

play32:36

supporters Union can veto that so it's

play32:39

not

play32:40

that um the odds are going shorter and

play32:43

shorter here by the way on the next

play32:45

managers people put money down and

play32:47

that's all this is an indication of by

play32:49

the way is how much money people are

play32:50

putting down on it because that's what

play32:51

makes the odds fluctuate Alonzo is now

play32:54

into one to two so he's now into odds on

play32:57

earlier on if you remember when this

play32:58

news first broke and we looked at the

play33:00

odds you were talking six to five on six

play33:03

to five against for Alonzo now he's into

play33:05

one to2 der Zerby 6 to1 linders 8 to1

play33:10

anao and nagles 14 to one each uh Billy

play33:15

Hogan on the back room staff leaving he

play33:16

said pep and vtor want to get going in

play33:19

their managerial careers we understood

play33:22

that so it looks like those guys are

play33:24

going to move on and look for managerial

play33:27

jobs themselves um which again I

play33:30

understood that had to be the next move

play33:32

for linders anyway um and he can't be he

play33:36

can't be that he can't be linders it

play33:38

can't he's

play33:39

not he's not that guy to come after

play33:42

klopp I think it needs to be fresh I

play33:44

don't think the idea of pro promoting

play33:46

from within would work now so I do think

play33:49

yeah go fresh

play33:54

um is Pep linders leaving yes the back

play33:57

room staff are going with uran at the

play33:59

end of the season uh so is George schat

play34:02

for those who hadn't heard that news

play34:03

either he's going to be leaving and

play34:06

we're going to look to put in the new

play34:07

sporting

play34:09

director what about hansy

play34:12

flick

play34:14

nah so to manage Liverpool you got to

play34:18

have gravy Tas and that's what I keep

play34:20

saying and a lot of the managers names

play34:23

who've been mentioned like let's throw a

play34:24

name out there that's lots of people are

play34:26

put into the chat zidan well firstly he

play34:28

doesn't speak English so I don't know

play34:32

how he comes into motivates the player

play34:33

straight away and it's not a right

play34:35

cultural fit he's not the right type of

play34:37

person to manage Liverpool Football Club

play34:40

zidan will be a real Madrid France

play34:42

Juventus somebody else perhaps but not

play34:44

Liverpool nman I don't think he

play34:48

has

play34:50

done enough

play34:52

lately uh to justify it I think his

play34:56

stock has dropped a little bit in World

play34:58

football if we look inwardly at the

play35:00

Premier League you've got der Zerby

play35:04

um you know I I don't want to see the

play35:07

likes of GRA Potter's name linked either

play35:09

that's

play35:10

just it's looked as one name I can't get

play35:13

past Alonzo it's Alonzo for me maybe

play35:15

desery but Alonzo's the one if I had a

play35:19

magic one now and I could wave it I'm

play35:21

going to lusen to get Javi jabbi excuse

play35:24

me uh sad news to hear Craig thank you

play35:27

for covering this thank you for being

play35:28

with us King it's uh you know it's it's

play35:32

the day I've been dreading more so than

play35:34

any player leaving you know I said this

play35:37

over and over again klopp's the biggest

play35:39

signing klopp's the most important

play35:41

one

play35:43

um and I I guess I have to turn the

play35:46

conversation to Salah now to some extent

play35:49

because what does this mean for Mo in

play35:52

his own mind I mean what does this mean

play35:55

for him and his

play35:58

connection to the club is that going to

play36:01

go a little bit because the manager of

play36:02

course that helped along with his own

play36:05

great work turn him into a

play36:08

superstar if he's departing and Mo's got

play36:11

one year to go are we going to see a

play36:13

change or will the new manager come in

play36:15

maybe and excite Mo or other players

play36:18

into thinking yeah maybe you know let's

play36:20

go again refresh new deal I don't know

play36:23

but this is where your brain goes to in

play36:25

these moments

play36:28

don't be sad Craig it's over be happy

play36:30

that it happened I do love that take

play36:33

Matthew I'm certainly grateful it's

play36:35

happened let me say that

play36:39

um there's something very reassuring

play36:42

about getting up every day talking to

play36:45

you guys about football we have our

play36:47

highs we'll have our lows but that

play36:49

consistency of

play36:50

manager it's been a truly heartwarming

play36:54

thing you know it's been lovely to know

play36:57

that no matter how bad things have

play36:58

gotten that conversation in the chats

play37:00

never come up about is it time for urgen

play37:02

to leave

play37:05

um so yes definitely thankful it's

play37:08

happened 100% thankful we we've had

play37:13

urgen uh some more stuff from kloy said

play37:15

this summer was the first time I had a

play37:17

team meeting and I realized I couldn't

play37:19

lead it uh then the potential of the

play37:21

team got better and I thought yes uh

play37:24

that's it time to leave

play37:27

and I love his honesty on that sincerely

play37:31

I love that he is that's the end of the

play37:34

press conference by the way press

play37:35

conference is over now but that's the

play37:37

measure of the man that's one of the

play37:39

reasons I love this man is he's not

play37:43

fooling himself or anyone he's honest

play37:46

he's sincere he's humble enough to know

play37:49

if he can't do it at 100% and that takes

play37:51

a big big character and a big man and a

play37:54

big personality to to admit that and

play37:58

that's why he is a legend a great an

play38:01

icon

play38:04

um yeah I know people want conspiracy

play38:08

theories and people

play38:09

want people to point fingers at but I

play38:13

genuinely think what he said is

play38:15

true if we get jabbi

play38:19

Alonzo sure what should be the standard

play38:21

in the Prem I I don't know dude

play38:25

cuz at this point on where we are as a

play38:28

football club whoever the next manager

play38:32

is we want to make sure we're still

play38:34

Champions League every year we want to

play38:36

make sure

play38:38

we're as competitive as we can be in the

play38:41

transfer market and I think as Liverpool

play38:44

fans we've all had a little taste of

play38:47

success it's been nice seeing that

play38:49

League trophy was a beautiful thing um

play38:53

and I hope that this

play38:54

isn't the star of Liverpool sliding back

play38:59

a little bit

play39:01

um this is a big moment for the owners

play39:03

this is a big moment for FSG Billy Hogan

play39:06

and the rest of them to get this right

play39:08

so the right to take their time the

play39:10

right to look at every candidate

play39:13

possible you know uh take on advice I

play39:17

guess if needs be

play39:19

and see what happens

play39:24

next uh love you Liverpool of course

play39:27

said Ben Peak um we're still in our

play39:30

golden era look what klopp said about

play39:32

the new team is absolutely spot on that

play39:37

recruitment in the summer the players

play39:38

that he's brought in whoever that next

play39:41

manager is is going to be coming in to a

play39:43

dressing room that they know they'll be

play39:45

able to work with they know that they'll

play39:48

they don't have a rebuilding job so a

play39:50

lot of the times if a new manager comes

play39:51

into a job they're coming in because

play39:53

somebody before them has failed or

play39:55

because

play39:57

their signings haven't worked out and

play39:59

you know the owners run the pressure

play40:01

that's not going to be the case for

play40:02

Liverpool's next manager they are going

play40:04

to walk into a dressing room full

play40:06

of exciting young hungry accomplished

play40:11

players and yes they want to put their

play40:13

own personal touch on it and yes they'll

play40:15

add in their own take

play40:17

but it's it's a job that anybody in

play40:20

their right mind should be begging for

play40:22

at this point yes you've got the

play40:25

daunting t of coming in after uran but

play40:28

it's a rarity you get to come into a

play40:30

club in a good position as a as a

play40:32

manager like that um and her next

play40:35

manager whomever that may be is

play40:37

definitely walking into a very very good

play40:39

dressing

play40:41

room what about the players that came

play40:43

because of

play40:46

klopp in what sense like I don't get

play40:49

what you mean um these are all

play40:51

professionals they understand that

play40:53

football is an evolving thing that

play40:55

changes and can move quickly just like

play40:58

some of these guys maybe thought they

play40:59

were settled at a particular Club until

play41:01

Liverpool came in for them quickly and

play41:03

then all of a sudden they're at

play41:03

Liverpool or I think the players will

play41:06

understand because of the sincerity at

play41:09

which Ur and klopp would have delivered

play41:10

the message to them same way delivered

play41:13

it to us the same way delivered it to

play41:14

the media you know it's sincerity and

play41:17

honesty and I think they'll relate to

play41:19

that and they'll understand it and I'm

play41:21

sure that they'll go home and be as

play41:24

confused or as sad as the rest of us but

play41:27

he is right about having a good dressing

play41:29

room and a good team and a good group

play41:32

and that's the mark of the maners I keep

play41:34

saying I love it I love that he's done

play41:36

what he's

play41:37

promised all you can ever do in life you

play41:39

know is hold people to what they say and

play41:41

he's done what he said as Billy Hogan

play41:44

said 2015 when he arrived at the club he

play41:47

said I want to leave the club in a

play41:48

stronger position than when I arrived

play41:50

and he's done it and he will do it so

play41:53

what what can we say other than thank

play41:55

you uran and you know let's enjoy these

play41:58

last few months of Juran tricky

play42:04

Reds uh Diego Simeone no Simeone is a

play42:09

football terrorist in my head I cannot

play42:12

go from watching urgen klopp football to

play42:14

watching Diego Simone football I can't

play42:16

do it I I couldn't no we need we need

play42:20

somebody that's going to know how to get

play42:22

the best out of these players and play

play42:24

the style of football that let's be be

play42:26

honest our players look forward you know

play42:28

they're an attacking group so yeah no

play42:31

not cholo Sim only thank

play42:34

you uh we must stick together in these

play42:37

times said Samuel yeah look

play42:40

I'm I'm very sad today but I'm

play42:46

also as as that gentleman said earlier

play42:49

on in the chat I'm glad it's happened as

play42:51

in the nine years with uran I'm glad

play42:54

we've had them cuz look at what what's

play42:56

happened in football in that time around

play42:57

other clubs look how many managers have

play42:59

come and gone for United or Chelsea or

play43:02

you

play43:03

know oh God man this is like I have a

play43:07

12year old son and almost all of his

play43:09

life so far jurgen's been at the H at

play43:11

Liverpool and we've never had to have a

play43:13

conversation of is it time to sack

play43:15

somebody is it time to

play43:19

um move on do we need to look at a new

play43:21

coach it's just so many questions that

play43:23

we've never had to ask before

play43:27

so give me some names in the chat

play43:30

realistic ones who you'd like to come in

play43:33

or who you think will be the right fit

play43:35

look we can talk about mad names like

play43:38

Ana cogo but ultimately Z spur is newly

play43:41

in there um and that's not going to

play43:44

happen Des Zerby he said that he's Focus

play43:46

are bright until the end of the season I

play43:48

don't know if there's a hidden message

play43:50

in that but be under No Illusion about

play43:52

one

play43:55

thing

play43:57

I don't think that there's a manager out

play44:00

there that this job will be offered to

play44:02

that will turn it

play44:04

down I can't see like can you and even

play44:07

if you're an opposition Club fan right

play44:09

now you got to say if this jobs offered

play44:12

to a

play44:14

manager they're not turning it down they

play44:17

aren't nobody you you'd be mad to turn

play44:20

down

play44:21

what's available at the moment with this

play44:24

group of players

play44:26

uh feels like we've lost a friend today

play44:28

said box will best wishes and many

play44:30

thanks to klopp for all the good memory

play44:32

thanks for being our therapy Craig we

play44:33

need it I've just been exchanging

play44:35

messages with like LFC USA you know

play44:38

Brian saying how are you feeling it

play44:40

feels like even Connor everyone's just

play44:43

shocked because there was no inkling of

play44:45

this you

play44:47

know just out like

play44:52

that

play44:54

um jabbi is not approved takes Zan

play44:57

that's just an idiot answer you know

play45:00

nothing about Liverpool Football Club if

play45:02

your answer is zadan and I mean that not

play45:05

as a dig at you I'm just being

play45:08

factual nothing about cedine zadan

play45:11

strikes a core with Liverpool or

play45:12

Liverpool's fans or the way Liverpool is

play45:15

as a city he doesn't speak English He

play45:18

it's just it's just culturally so so bad

play45:22

of a fit it's just a silly answer and

play45:25

it's an answer of somebody who obviously

play45:27

I

play45:29

think it's just a FIFA answer I'm sorry

play45:32

it's just such if you knew anything

play45:34

about our

play45:35

club it's not going to be zadan

play45:41

dude um Ruben amorim but want Alonzo so

play45:47

David

play45:48

Cornwell

play45:50

uh I'm so glad that your was a red

play45:54

um

play45:58

we're going to lose an amazing manager

play45:59

the league will have lost a

play46:02

great uh Marco Rose definitely played on

play46:05

the clap at Ms he's the one said

play46:08

Sam uh jabby seems like the best option

play46:10

to Jacko shaes keante he doesn't have a

play46:14

club uh I have a lifetime of love for

play46:16

club nah kante's

play46:19

too kante is not that guy for us I don't

play46:23

think K's

play46:24

a a great manager to bring in to

play46:27

stabilize a club

play46:30

or to get you a league title or two in

play46:34

the short term but again with what we

play46:37

have at Liverpool he's not that guy you

play46:40

know he's not going to work hand you

play46:42

also have to think who's going to work

play46:43

hand in hand and who's going to fit with

play46:45

FSG and again zidan and Conte don't

play46:47

strike me as the types of managers that

play46:50

would interest um FSG in the way that

play46:54

they

play46:54

operate

play46:58

there is a part of me that thinks I

play47:00

wonder if Mourinho sitting around hoping

play47:03

he gets a call I don't want him and I

play47:05

don't think it's going to happen but I

play47:07

can't help but think back to when we

play47:08

appointed rafhael bonitz knowing that

play47:11

Mourinho wanted the Liverpool job before

play47:13

that Chelsea job um and he's out of work

play47:17

right now he's not getting the job but I

play47:19

wonder if he's going to put his name

play47:21

forward for

play47:24

it

play47:29

only people I'd like it is Herb in

play47:31

Alonzo said Dylan saw Alonzo's press

play47:33

conference earlier he didn't exactly

play47:35

rule himself out of the job and that's

play47:37

exactly what I thought

play47:38

mate I I'm the same as you dude I

play47:41

thought he definitely didn't rule

play47:42

himself out of the job did he now he

play47:44

didn't rule himself into the job but he

play47:46

did speak

play47:49

about kind

play47:53

of he said a lot without saying a lot if

play47:56

you get me I I didn't feel he was ruling

play47:58

himself out from what I've seen uh I got

play48:02

to be honest I do I I definitely don't

play48:04

feel like he's ruled himself

play48:06

out what do you think of unai Emy I

play48:09

think he's a great coach but he's also a

play48:11

good club a club that will not let their

play48:14

manager go

play48:16

and a great coach nothing else to say on

play48:20

right nothing but respect but had a good

play48:22

club and a Forward Thinking Club as well

play48:24

so you know know I think he's he's safe

play48:27

there at Aston

play48:30

Villa uh the Jona manager said scales

play48:33

gamer so again ask yourself this do do

play48:38

we see Manchester City and the City

play48:41

Group wanting to allow a manager that's

play48:44

at one of their clubs in Jona uh a club

play48:47

that I look is on the up and up and is

play48:49

doing great

play48:50

things there's no way that's going to

play48:53

happen I can't see that happening can

play48:55

you see uh a city brand manager coming

play48:59

in to manage Liverpool it just doesn't

play49:03

doesn't makees sense to me maybe I'm

play49:05

deluded I don't

play49:09

know uh Thomas Tule nah not for me

play49:12

because if we brought in Thomas tle it

play49:14

just feels like we've got an inferior

play49:16

version of what we had before that's how

play49:19

I'd look at Tule coming in and

play49:22

also I I I'm not overly fond of Thomas

play49:25

tle really either I don't I've never

play49:28

been able to take to the man

play49:32

um you look at what's going on now at

play49:34

Bayern Munich and some of his decisions

play49:37

and situations there are very

play49:41

strange um so Chris Williams writing on

play49:45

Twitter said overriding feeling from

play49:47

that press conference is the club have

play49:49

already identified a replacement and

play49:51

have been actively working on it uh

play49:54

Hogan looked way way too relaxed for a

play49:56

man who's got to now go out and find a

play49:59

successor to the club's most popular

play50:01

manager in modern

play50:03

history I'm going to read that again

play50:05

because I think that's from a journalist

play50:07

who was there and he said the overriding

play50:11

feeling from that press conference the

play50:13

club have already identified a

play50:15

replacement and have actively been

play50:17

working on it Hogan looked way too relax

play50:19

for a man who's got to now go out and

play50:21

find a successor to the club's most

play50:23

popular manager in modern history

play50:27

I don't disagree with what Chris

play50:29

Williams has said there I haven't

play50:32

watched the press conference yet I've

play50:33

only seen the quote because of course I

play50:35

was live here with you guys and reading

play50:37

out the quotes as they came in

play50:43

but I I agree with Chris as much as none

play50:46

of us have any information that we know

play50:47

I do agree that would be my guess as

play50:50

well uh speaking of tuul imagine he goes

play50:53

to Liverpool and Club goes to buyer big

play50:55

plot twist if that happens honestly I I

play50:58

think there's more likelihood of klopp

play51:01

taking the German job next

play51:05

um obviously you're a German football

play51:08

fan mate You' know better than me the

play51:09

likelihood of Club managing Bayern I

play51:11

don't know if he do that to the Dortmund

play51:14

fans I truly don't but the German job

play51:17

maybe after the Euros if Germany don't

play51:19

do well maybe well look let me put it

play51:22

this way I'd go as far as to say if clpp

play51:25

said he wanted the Germany job it

play51:26

doesn't matter who's in the job they're

play51:28

getting the boo that's the and I look I

play51:31

don't think klopp would ever want to get

play51:33

anyone sacked but let me be honest about

play51:35

it if you're the German fa and klopp

play51:37

shows any indication or willingness that

play51:39

he would be interested in that German

play51:41

job then uh you're pretty much sharpish

play51:45

moving on whoever's in the way let's be

play51:50

frank seems mad but tho M my uh why not

play51:55

he play with aggression like klopp um
