Liverpool coach Lijnders wants to bring a specific player with him to his new team, RB Salzburg.
This summer, Pep Lijnders is preparing to leave his position as assistant manager at Liverpool to take charge of RM Salzburg in Austria. After a long spell at Anfield, the Dutchman is excited to begin this new chapter in his career.

During his time at Liverpool, Lijnders played a crucial role in developing young talent and bringing them into the first team. One player that stood out to him was 20-year-old right-back Conor Bradley. Lijnders is keen to bring Bradley with him to Salzburg, but he knows it may not be possible due to Liverpool's sporting director, Michael Edwards, being in charge.

"I have a lot of admiration for Conor Bradley, as well as other young players like Jarell Quansah, Caoimhin Kelleher, Harvey Elliot, and Curtis Jones," Lijnders shared with The Redmen TV. "But I know we have a great right-back already, so I don't see the need to buy anyone else. Conor could join me at Salzburg right away, but it's ultimately up to Michael Edwards and the club's financial situation."

Bradley made his first-team debut for Liverpool this season, showcasing his potential and impressing Lijnders. It was recently announced that Lijnders will be taking over at RB Salzburg, and he expressed his gratitude towards Liverpool for preparing him for a managerial role.

"When Liverpool asked me to come back after my short stint at NEC, I never would have imagined it would lead to this opportunity. I've been given a lot of responsibility over the past six years, and Jurgen Klopp has always treated me as a co-pilot, not just an assistant. I feel well-prepared for this next step," Lijnders shared.

Lijnders also reflected on his time at Liverpool, remembering how players like Trent Alexander-Arnold, who was his captain in the Under-16s team, have grown into world-class players. "Seeing Trent's journey from a young boy with big dreams to a top-tier right-back has been incredible. And it's not just him, players like Mo Salah have also come in and become stars. It's been an emotional week for me as I look back on everything that has happened," Lijnders said with a smile.

As Lijnders prepares to leave Liverpool for Salzburg, he knows he will always have a special connection to the club, its players, and its fans. He is grateful for the experiences and opportunities he has had at Liverpool and is excited to see where his new journey at Salzburg will take him.
