Lijnders’ next club, squad announced & goalkeepers leaving – Latest LFC News

Tuesday saw plenty of news emerge from Liverpool’s goalkeeping department, as the Reds reflected on a 3-3 draw with Aston Villa.

Having previously been linked with Besiktas and Ajax, Pep Lijnders is now in the frame to become the new boss at RB Salzburg.

The journalist said Lijnders “sees the opportunity as the perfect step in his career,” which suggests that a move could develop quickly.

It could also be a positive move for Liverpool, who could benefit from having a good relationship with the head coach of a club known for producing talented players.

If Lijnders were to join RB Salzburg, Liverpool’s current elite development coach, Vitor Matos, would move with him.
