Jurgen Klopp is Barcelona fans’ favourite to replace Ernesto Valverde

Liverpool will be desperate to keep this incredible squad together for as long as possible.

If they were to sell any of their first-team squad, it would be a tough task to replace them.

However, the one man they simply can’t afford to lose is their manager, Jurgen Klopp.

The German took over a very average Liverpool squad in October 2015 with the Reds not even a Champions League side.

He’s led them to three European finals – winning the Champions League last season – and now looks set to finally end their Premier League drought.

Klopp won’t be in charge forever but replacing him will be virtually impossible.

However, it probably won’t be surprising to see top European clubs interested in bringing Klopp in.

Reports this week suggested that the Liverpool boss spent an hour on the phone to Paris Saint-Germain chiefs as they attempted to lure him to France. Klopp’s answer was a firm no.

And now, Klopp features on the front cover of Spanish newspaper, Mundo Deportivo.

The newspaper has conducted a social media survey and Klopp has come out on top as the preferred option to replace Ernesto Valverde.

A massive 80% want Valverde gone and Klopp won the vote with 33.6% of the vote.

Ronald Koeman wasn’t too far behind with 31.96%, while Belgium boss Roberto Martinez received 17.21%.

It perhaps shouldn’t be too surprising that Barca fans want the manager of the European champions as their next boss.

But still, Liverpool fans won’t enjoy seeing Klopp plastered on the front page of a newspaper in Spain being talked about replacing Valverde at the Camp Nou.
