Joel Matip names two Liverpool players who could become managers in the future

Liverpool defender Joel Matip has named two teammates he believes could be future managers.

Many in the Anfield side have already proven their qualifications to be top coaches in the future. One of Liverpool’s strengths over the years has arguably been their will and determination.

A good example is Steven Gerrard, a former Redsman who later found success as a manager. The former Reds captain won the Soviet Premier League with Rangers and now manages Aston Villa.

According to Matip, more could follow Gerrard into the coaching world.

He believes current club captain Jordan Henderson or veteran midfielder James Milner would be the best fit as future managers.he said (via Anfield Watch):

“For me, I think it should be Hendo or Millie.”

Henderson, who joined Liverpool from Sunderland in 2011, has had to face his fair share of doubters.

In recent years, however, he has been the unsung hero at the heart of Jurgen Klopp’s midfield. He gave some great performances of why he was such a good leader.

Meanwhile, Milner doesn’t seem to be getting old. Now 36, he continues to play with the energy and enthusiasm of a budding player.

During their time at Anfield, both won the Champions League and the Premier League.
