first_img 2. Jamie Carragher – With his vast experience and evident understanding of the game, it’s easy to see Carragher slotting in to a backroom role with the Reds. Any such position would put an end to his career as a pundit, but surely Carra would prefer to be back at Anfield? With reports now claiming that Jurgen Klopp could be unveiled as the new manager of Liverpool Football Club by the end of this week, attention has now turned to what the German will bring to Anfield.While much discussion over the past few days has focused on his coaching style and match tactics, there is also the interest on who he could bring to the club as part of his backroom staff.Robbie Fowler recently stated that he is keeping a close eye on the current situation at Liverpool and would love a role with the senior squad.So with such thoughts in mind, we’ve listed five former players that could be welcomed back on Merseyside.Take a look by clicking the yellow arrow above, right. 5 4. Steven Gerrard – There will surely be few Liverpool supporters that wouldn’t welcome Gerrard back with open arms. Perhaps Klopp could be interested in handing Gerrard, as Louis van Gaal has done with Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs, a role as his assistant. This, however, is unlikely at present given his desire to continue playing. It is probable that he will return to the club, but unlike in Giggs’ case, Gerrard was allowed to leave and that should scupper any hopes of an immediate return. 5 5 3. Sami Hyypia – Only a few months ago, Hypia stated his desire to join Liverpool’s backroom staff and you suspect he would still be interested in a return to the club. His managerial career is yet to really take off, and a role as an assistant with his former club could be particularly inviting. Perhaps he is more suited to a coaching/assistant position? He certainly knows his way around Melwood. 5 5 1. Robbie Fowler – to see the remaining four, click the arrow above! – Fowler is an official ambassador for the club and is therefore in a great position to persuade the hierarchy to offer him a backroom role. There may be concerns at his lack of experience, although he has coached with MK Dons and the Liverpool academy, possesses a UEFA A licence and could be an exciting addition on the training ground as an attacking coach. Whether Klopp would be willing to work with someone with limited experience remains to be seen. 5. Markus Babbel – Babbel and Klopp are well acquainted from their respective careers in the Bundesliga, and with the German connection, the pair could make for an exciting new team on Merseyside. Babbel is currently the head coach of FC Luzern, but the lure of a Premier League return with Liverpool could prove impossible to reject. Back in 2001, Babbel was a hero of Liverpool’s cup treble winners, could he become a Kop hero once more?last_img
