Faced with replacing their own totemic leader, Liverpool have to consider the strength of personality required of their next manager.

Xabi Alonso’s decision to stay at Bayer Leverkusen beyond the end of the current season struck a blow to Liverpool’s search for their next manager.

Guiding Liverpool to a sixth European Cup and a first top-flight title in 20 years took more than a tactics board to accomplish. The story of Klopp’s time at Liverpool will be one of holistic development – of players, of the club and its infrastructure, of a redoubled connection with the fans. Like Ferguson and Wenger before him, he has been a team-builder, an innovator, a willing adaptor, a motivator, a psychologist.

Unai Emery came to Arsenal with a stellar track record, having taken Sevilla to three successive Europa League triumphs as well as a Ligue 1 title with Paris Saint-Germain. He was considered one of the Europe’s finest tacticians, too, a reputation to which subsequent spells with Villarreal and Aston Villa attests. But he also lacked the force of personality to thrive in the void Wenger left behind at the Emirates and lasted less than a season and a half.

What’s more, three key players – Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold – will be entering the final year of their contracts. Aside from any big-money incomings, some managerial stability would go a long way towards assuring the club’s current stars that their futures belong at Liverpool.
