Jamie Carragher gives take on Roberto De Zerbi amid Liverpool links

The Liverpool legend considers the Italian top contender for Liverpool

Liverpool's search for a new manager has been the talk of the town, with Roberto De Zerbi emerging as one of the favorites to take over. Jamie Carragher, a former Liverpool player and current football pundit, has predicted that De Zerbi could leave his current position at Brighton and Hove Albion amid rumors linking him to Liverpool and other European clubs.

De Zerbi hasn't dismissed the chances of his departure from Brighton's AMEX Stadium. This speculation is fueled by Jürgen Klopp's known intention to leave Anfield at the end of this season. With Xabi Alonso ruling himself out of contention for Klopp’s role, De Zerbi now finds himself among those being considered for one of football’s most prestigious managerial positions.

In light of these developments, Jamie Carragher shared his thoughts on De Zerbi's future ahead of Brighton’s recent 2-1 loss to Liverpool. He believes that there is a strong possibility that we may see an Italian in charge at Anfield soon.

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, said:

"I'm sure he's in the running — I don't think there's any doubt about that — I'm not sure if he's at the top of that list but he's got a fantastic record against Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp since he joined Brighton," 

"He'll want to continue that today and I don't think it'll do his chances any harm if he does do that. It does look like he is going to move on whether that would be to Liverpool or another club in the summer from reading his quotes over the last few weeks. It looks like he wants to speak to the owner about where the club is going next season and it looks like he is paving his way to leave Brighton at the end of the season."

However, it should be noted that while Sporting CP manager Rúben Amorim also seems to be on Liverpool’s radar as a potential successor to Klopp, nothing is certain yet. The club continues its search for a new manager with several potential candidates under consideration.

Fans will have to wait till the end for news

As fans eagerly await confirmation about who will take over from Klopp at Anfield next season, it remains an exciting time filled with uncertainty and anticipation. Whether or not Roberto De Zerbi will make the move from Brighton remains uncertain but what is clear is that he has emerged as one strong contender in this race.

For sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts alike, these are interesting times. The speculation around the next Liverpool manager not only adds an element of intrigue to the beautiful game but also opens up a world of possibilities for sports betting markets. As we wait for official announcements, all eyes will be on De Zerbi and other potential successors to Klopp at Anfield.
