Managing at the top level of world football can be a hindrance to most managers, and it takes a special kind of character to excel in the worlds biggest jobs. One man that has certainly lived up to the challenge has been Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp.
The German arrived at Anfield in the winter of 2015 and has quickly stamped his authority all over the Liverpool team. After falling to win a trophy with the side for his first four years, he answered any doubters by winning the 2019 Champions League.
However, the job security of any elite manager is never safe, and there is still a chance that Klopp may choose to walk away from the Anfield club at the end of the season. With that comes an interesting betting market for punters to wager their money on who may be his successor. It is a competitive market for Liverpool betting, with many ex-players making up the favourites.

The managerial role at Liverpool is one of the most touted jobs in world football, but it takes a very special kind of character to excel in the position. Liverpool are one of the biggest clubs in world football, and no other English club can claim to have won more silverware than the Reds. However, the one trophy that has consistently alluded them is the Premier League, and that will be the main aim of any successor to Klopp.
It looks unlikely that the current German manager will be fired anytime soon, but he could opt to walk away from the Reds should he achieve everything that he had planned. That means that the bet on Liverpool markets for this aspect could be a lucrative way for punters to maximise their returns.
How To Win at Manager Odds?
The way to win this kind of bet couldn’t be more simple. Punters will put their stake on the manager that they believe will follow them German in the Liverpool hot seat. The Liverpool manager odds will continuously change throughout the course of the season depending on how the managers in the market are doing with their current sides. However, punters will be rewarded with the returns should the manager that they pick be officially announced as the successor to Klopp.
If their selection isn’t announced as the next Liverpool manager, then the stake is lost, and the bet is a loser. The bet is settled once the next manager has been announced.
Liverpool Manager Odds
There is one clear front runner at this early stage, and that is ex-Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard. The midfielder was a talisman for the club and led them to a Champions League and FA Cup success. He has been excelling at his first club, and could even guide Rangers to their first piece of silverware for a long time.
It will be difficult for Gerrard to reject the club that he loves, but in order for him to get the chance then Klopp will have to leave the club. It is a market that punters should be aware of, and they could find an interesting avenue for revenue.
