Morton has impressed on loan at Blackburn Rovers in the Championship and could follow in Elliott’s footsteps of becoming a first-team player after a positive spell at Ewood Park.

The 20-year-old predominantly plays as a defensive midfielder and is highly rated at Anfield, as is Clarkson.

He is on loan at Aberdeen and has played a key role in their campaign in Scotland, operating in a more advanced role than Morton.

Now 21 and soon to have a full season of senior football under his belt, Clarkson is another Klopp could be tempted to promote and utilise next season.

‘Go & get’: Jurgen Klopp is sacked, 43-year-old PL man as Liverpool manager?

Stevie Nicol says he would take Brighton boss, Roberto De Zerbi, as Liverpool manager if the struggling Premier League club sacked Jurgen Klopp at the end of the season.

That was the question put to the Anfield legend ‘who is the best coach for Liverpool if Klopp gets sacked at the end of the season?’, as he put forward De Zerbi’s name, as he told ESPN.

Despite only becoming Brighton boss back in September, the Italian, who replaced Graham Potter at the Amex Stadium, is unbeaten in three games against Klopp.

Their most recent meeting is still fresh in the mind of all because Liverpool were booted out of the FA Cup on Sunday, after Kaoru Mitoma’s stoppage-time winner.

Post-World Cup, everything that is going wrong for those on Merseyside, is going wrong – and it’s the case for both ends of the divide.

Nonetheless, when talking about Klopp’s future, Nicol shared what he likes about De Zerbi, as he compared the 43-year-old to Brendan Rodgers.

“There’s not another Klopp,” said Nicol. “I tell you what you could do, because you are a big club, go and get De Zerbi from Brighton.

“On the face of it, you were like ‘wow, you are taking over from Potter. How are you going to get more?’ Yes (prefer De Zerbi to Tuchel or Pochettino), because he plays exciting attacking football.

“I liked Brendan Rodgers, the way he coached the team. I just didn’t like the other stuff. But the way he played the game, I liked it. And I like the way De Zerbi has Brighton playing. The ғᴀᴄᴛ that he has got them better from when Potter was there is incredible.”


Yes, the German has to take some form of responsibility for the club’s current situation, but there’s no way FSG have the bottle to sack him.

There would be absolute uproar from the fans if that were to happen because there are bigger issues than Klopp himself.

The lack of pro-active nature in the transfer market is now hurting the team, and whilst rival teams spend money for fun, Liverpool are still relying on the likes of Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner.
