John Barnes has named Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola as his ideal Jurgen Klopp replacement at Liverpool. The rivalry between the two sides has intensified as both clubs have consistently challenged for league glory.
“Pep Guardiola,” Barnes said when asked to name his ideal replacement for Klopp. “Of course there are other managers that you would think are better suited, such as Steven Gerrard who has had a very good season at Rangers, but is he going to come to Liverpool off the back of one good year?
“Of course he would be given time because of his relationship with Liverpool. If you were to ask me now, if Jurgen Klopp left Liverpool tomorrow would I think Steven was the man for the job? Probably not because you would want a manager with more experience and is proven at the highest level.”
