Liverpool hero McAteer: Klopp out in 18 months

Liverpool hero Jason McAteer believes manager Jurgen Klopp is about to enter the final 18 months of his tenure.

McAteer believes Klopp will leaving his post in 2021 and be replaced by Rangers boss Steven Gerrard.

Steven Gerrard made a clever move going to Rangers to begin his management career and I wouldn't be at all surprised if stop two on his journey is Anfield," he wrote for the Racing Post.

“I've got an inkling that Gerrard will be the next Liverpool manager at the start of the 2021-22 season.

“I'm confident Liverpool will win the Premier League this season under Jurgen Klopp and then he'll stick around to try to retain the trophy for another season.

“And whether he succeeds or fails, my hunch is that he'll walk away at that point and Stevie will step into his shoes."
