After Xabi Alonso’s decision, Roberto De Zerbi explains the “sad” situation for Liverpool.


There have been rumors about Roberto De Zerbi joining Liverpool.
Roberto de Zerbi, the manager of Brighton and Hove Albion, expressed his regret at Jurgen Klopp’s departure from Liverpool and feels that the coach is among the most influential in football.

This season, Klopp made it known that he would be departing Anfield at the end of the current campaign. There is already a hunt going on for his replacement, and De Zerbi is one of the names being considered.

Since taking over in 2022, the Italian has made an impressive impact at Brighton, helping the team qualify for Europe. On Sunday afternoon, he leads his club to Anfield as the Seagulls turn their attention back to Europe.

The Brighton manager discussed Klopp’s departure from Liverpool and the influence the German had on him and his fellow managers prior to the match.

He told Sky Sports, “I have a lot of respect for Jurgen Klopp, as I have mentioned many times.” “He’s a huge man, a huge coach, and an amazing coach.”

“I’m sorry to see him go from Liverpool, the Premier League. However, the most influential coaches for us, for younger coaches throughout my time as a young coach, are Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.

De Zebri made his remarks only a few hours after Xabi Alonso’s future became public knowledge. It appears that the former Reds midfielder will remain at Bayer Leverkusen, even though he was the overwhelming favorite to take over at Anfield in the summer.

Liverpool has moved on to other targets as a result of it. De Zerbi is one, and Ruben Amorim, the manager of Sporting CP, is also rumored to be joining Anfield.

De Zerbi has previously talked about Klopp’s departure. “I’m very sad because, if he changes league, changes country, the Premier League loses one of the best coaches in the world,” he stated back in January.

“I’m sad about it because I think that Klopp, Pep Guardiola, Carlo Ancelotti, and Marcelo Bielsa are the best coaches in the world.”

But I have a great understanding of it. Although extremely difficult, I believe our job to be the greatest that you can do. You require energy. You must exert yourself daily. You lose everything if you don’t work with the correct energy.”
