The former Liverpool midfielder continues to be a strong fan-favorite among the Anfield faithful and would likely be a popular nomination were he to take over when Klopp finally leaves.

Ex- Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso has turned away from any suggestion he may succeed Jurgen Klopp as Red’s boss when the German eventually calls time on his Anfield reign.

Alonso spent five years in the red half of Merseyside as a player, winning the first of his two Champions League titles as well as the FA Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.

The Spaniard shortly became a popular figure among the Liverpool faithful, who instantly took to the sight of him alongside club captain Steven Gerrard in the middle of the park.

He eventually swapped Liverpool for Real Madrid in 2009, where he celebrated a similar degree of success, winning the second Champions League title before hanging up his boots for good in 2017 while at German giants Bayern Munich.

There is little assumption over an imminent departure for Klopp, but it is widely believed the former Borussia Dortmund boss will not coach for as long as most other managers at the elite level.

Should Klopp walk away from Anfield anytime soon, Alonso would certainly be a popular appointment for much of the Reds faithful.

However, Alonso has played down any talk of his being handed the keys to the Anfield hot-seat just yet, telling CNN: “I am here in San Sebastian and Liverpool fans, they salute me and I still feel that support.

“For me, that feeling in life is great. Right now, Jurgen [Klopp] is doing a great job, so I think that the job is fulfilled, but for sure that Liverpool is top, a top club for me, very, very, special.”

Since his retirement, Alonso has been working his way up the coaching ladder after securing his badges in 2018.
