Philippe Coutinho discusses Jurgen Klopp’s potential next club in interview with Liverpool icon.

Jurgen Klopp will be leaving Liverpool at the end of the season, as he announced in January due to feeling “run out of energy” in the position. Philippe Coutinho believes that Klopp’s management style would make him a successful Barcelona manager if he chooses to move to the Camp Nou. Klopp is looking to conclude his time at Anfield with a sensational quadruple, with Liverpool already securing their first trophy of the season by winning the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea.

The Liverpool team celebrated their victory at Wembley Stadium, with Virgil van Dijk scoring the winning goal. Klopp’s departure will mark the end of an era for him, as he plans to take at least a year away from management, although there is considerable interest from top clubs to persuade him otherwise, with Barcelona being among those linked with him. Coutinho, who previously played under Klopp at Liverpool, expressed his belief that either Klopp or fellow German boss Hansi Flick would be suitable for the Barcelona manager position.

Coutinho admired Klopp’s coaching style, as he personally experienced success under him at Anfield, before moving to Barcelona in 2018 for £142m. Overall, Coutinho praised both Klopp and Flick as being great coaches, emphasizing their ability to adapt to different teams and playing styles. He believes that due to the constantly changing nature of football, both managers have the potential to succeed at any club in the world.
