Liverpool: Fans drool over Pep Lijnders’ response to journalist

Liverpool fans have been loving the feedback from assistant manager Pep Lijnders after he took the reigns of the pre-match press conference for their Carabao Cup tie against Arsenal.

The Dutch coach first arrived at Anfield in 2014 and assisted alongside both former manager Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp.

However, he accepted his first manager’s job at the Dutch Eerste Divisie side NEC in 2018 but was sacked six months later after failing to gain promotion to the Eredivisie in the promotion play-offs.

He then returned in the summer of 2018 and helped guide Liverpool to their sixth Champions League trophy as Klopp’s right-hand man.

Lijnders took the hot seat as the Reds built up to the League Cup clash against the Gunners and supporters loved the response to Neil Jones’ question.

One fan believes that he should be put in the mix to be a future manager at Liverpool, while another labelled him as a “mini Klopp”.
