Pep Lijnders reveals talks over succeeding Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager

Former Liverpool assistant manager Pep Lijnders has revealed he was considered by the club as a potential replacement for Jurgen Klopp, who also quizzed the Dutchman about succeeding him as manager.

Lijnders was part of Liverpool's youth coaching setup when Klopp joined in 2015 and was quickly promoted to assistant manager, and the pair would work alongside each other for nine successful years at Anfield - aside from a short spell in 2018 when Lijnders went to work with Dutch side NEC Nijmegen.
