Description

Jurgen Klopp often praises his backroom team and indeed took the first opportunity to when he was named the LMA Manager of the Year for 2019/20. One man in particular has seen his reputation grow exponentially: assistant manager Pep Lijnders. Join Matt Addison as he explores Lijnders' role at Liverpool, and what has led to him becoming such a central figure at Melwood via FC Porto and NEC Nijmegen. Muslu Nalbantoglu, a former Ajax youth player, who worked as a coach at NEC, gives his views, as does Sander Janssen from the NEC fan group, Forza NEC. We also take a look at when Lijnders could succeed Klopp at Anfield as Portuguese analytic expert Scott Martin talks about how he moved to Porto at a young age to revamp their youth set-up, while Analysing Anfield's Josh Williams talks about how a Lijnders Liverpool could look should he ever take on the top job. Enjoy.
