Xabi Alonso has received a recommendation to appoint a Liverpool standout as his player-coach if he steps in for Jürgen Klopp as manager.

Last month, Klopp’s surprising announcement of his departure from Liverpool at the end of the season sent shockwaves through the football world. Having led the Reds to four major trophies, including their first Premier League title in 30 years, Klopp’s legacy looms large.

As speculation swirls around who might fill Klopp’s shoes, Xabi Alonso emerges as a leading contender. With a deep understanding of Liverpool from his illustrious five-year tenure as a player and his recent coaching success, Alonso is seen as an ideal candidate.

Having taken Bayer Leverkusen’s reins in 2022, Alonso has steered the club to Bundesliga title contention this season. With Leverkusen currently leading the league table, Alonso’s managerial prowess is undeniable.

While a slew of renowned coaches are linked with the Liverpool job, Alonso remains a favorite. As anticipation mounts for his potential appointment, some fans suggest an unconventional move upon his arrival.

Specifically, there’s a growing sentiment among supporters that Alonso should consider naming his former Spain teammate, Thiago Alcantara, as a player-coach. Despite Thiago’s injury struggles since his arrival at Liverpool in 2020, fans believe his experience and knowledge could make him an asset in a dual role.

While some supporters envision Thiago’s transition to a coaching role positively, others express skepticism. Despite the varying opinions, the notion of Thiago taking on a new responsibility at Liverpool adds an intriguing dimension to the club’s future under Alonso’s potential leadership.
