Liverpool should consider Southgate to replace Klopp, says former star

Glen Johnson has suggested that Liverpool should consider Gareth Southgate as a replacement for Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp announced his departure from Liverpool at the end of the season, aiming to secure a treble by winning the Premier League title and Europa League.

While Xabi Alonso and Roberto De Zerbi have been linked with the Liverpool job, Johnson believes Southgate could be an ideal choice if he becomes available.

He told Betfred: “If he’s available in the summer, then you’ve got to look at all the options.

“He’s done a brilliant job with England, so there’s no reason why he can’t be successful with a club like Liverpool as he’d be dealing with a similar standard of players.

“You’d need to have the chat because you can’t just dismiss him if he’s available.”

Johnson expressed doubt about how Manchester United players would react to Southgate as their manager, contrasting with his success leading the England national team.

He referenced Southgate’s refusal to discuss potentially succeeding Erik ten Hag at Manchester United.

He said: “I’m not sure because despite being a top bloke and great manager, I believe Gareth gets more respect from the players in the England squad because he’s English.

“Foreign players in Manchester United’s squad are initially not going to have that same level of respect for Gareth as the English players do.

“It would take a bit of time for him to win them over and if he can, then he’s more than capable of being successful.”

When pressed on whether Southgate could deliver success at Old Trafford, Johnson added: “There have been a number of good, successful managers that have gone into the job at Manchester United and have struggled, so it wouldn’t be guaranteed success for Gareth if he was to take the job.

“Manchester United are a huge club, with great support and on paper, they have a very good squad too.

“A top manager like Gareth could come in, get rid of a lot of the deadwood, provide that team with a good backbone and make Manchester United successful again.

“However, there’s been a lot of good managers that have taken that job in recent years and have failed.”

Palmer overtakes three-season Havertz stat at Chelsea

Cole Palmer’s remarkable four-goal performance against Everton on Monday evening has propelled him to the top of the Premier League golden boot race.

With 20 goals to his name this season, he is now neck and neck with Erling Haaland in the race for the prestigious award.

His scoring spree also highlights his incredible impact at Chelsea, as he has now scored more league goals in his first seven months at the club than Kai Havertz managed in three seasons, tallying 19 goals.

Palmer’s outstanding form has been instrumental in Chelsea’s climb up the Premier League table, bringing them within just three points of sixth place.

'He's had 48 hours' - Arsenal boss shares update on Bukayo Saka after furious penalty demand

Bukayo Saka expressed frustration at not being awarded a penalty after a clash with Manuel Neuer during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.

When questioned about Saka’s condition before the upcoming match against Aston Villa on Sunday, Mikel Arteta stated, “Yes, he looked fine this morning.”

“He’s had 48 hours to think about it and it’s done.”

Arteta chose not to address the incident after the game, but there was a general consensus that Saka’s contact with Neuer was minimal.

Saka faced criticism for his reaction, but given the high emotions of the game, such reactions were not uncommon.

Real Madrid 3-3 Man City: Valverde caps off evening of stunning goals in Champions League thriller

Manchester City and Real Madrid played out an enthralling 3-3 draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, setting up an intriguing second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

City took an early lead through Bernardo Silva’s cleverly taken free-kick, but Madrid equalized twice with deflected strikes from Eduardo Camavinga and Rodrygo, which took slight touches off Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji respectively.

Phil Foden restored City’s lead with a superb strike from outside the box, before Josko Gvardiol scored his first goal for the club with a fine right-footed shot to make it 3-2.

However, Madrid fought back once again, with Federico Valverde’s stunning volley ensuring the tie ended level.

The result leaves the quarter-final finely balanced ahead of the second leg, with City looking to replicate their 4-0 victory over Madrid in last season’s semi-finals at the Etihad Stadium.

There was a late injury concern for City as Foden hobbled off following a late tackle on his ankle, but the extent of the injury is yet to be determined.
