Although Klopp’s current leadership results are very stable, talkSPORT still asked him boldly: "If you are leaving next summer, who will be the ideal successor?" The German coach was selected. The captain, 31-year-old midfielder Henderson.
"Henderson's age is very suitable as a coach. He can lead the team as a player and coach like Kenny Dalglish in the next three years." Klopp said, "Everything will be lost. questionable!"
In the 1980s, Dalglish helped Liverpool complete three consecutive league championships and four consecutive League Cup championships as a player, creating the era of the Red Army in English football. At the beginning of the 1985-86 season, he was nicknamed "The King" and replaced Joe Fagan as a player and head coach. He won 5 trophies for the Red Army before resigning in 1991.
talkSPORT said that although this was just a relaxed conversation, it also showed Klopp's appreciation and reliance on Henderson. Of course, Henderson also admired Klopp very much and once called him the leader of the team.
"Fans will appreciate what Klopp has done for the club. He is our leader and he has set the tone for all this from the day he walked into the club." Henderson won 5-3 last season.
