Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso appeared to take a leaf out of Jurgen Klopp's book by celebrating with his entire coaching staff after beating Bayern Munich.
Leverkusen won 3-0 at home to Bayern and are now five points clear of their opponents at the top of the Bundesliga.
Former Liverpool midfielder Alonso has been heavily linked with the Anfield job after Jurgen Klopp announced that he will leave the club at the end of the season.
Klopp has often given his coaching staff credit following important victories and Alonso did likewise after Bayer's win.
Alonso's side prevailed courtesy of goals from Josip Stanisic, Alex Grimaldo and Jeremie Frimpong.
After the game Alonso made sure that his coaching staff joined him in celebrating with the club's fans.
Alonso has received much praise for the work that he has done since being appointed as Bayer Leverkusen boss in October 2022.
If he was to win the Bundesliga title this season - ending Bayern's dominance of having won the league eleven times in a row - Alonso's stock would rise even higher.
As a player Alonso was at Liverpool between 2004 and 2009. He won the Champions League and the FA Cup during his time at the club.
One Liverpool fan suggested that it's inevitable Alonso will return to the club.
They wrote: 'Gesture like this make me think that he knows we are all watching him like he’s being interviewed already.'
Another added: 'Bring this man to Liverpool immediately'.
One fan suggested that Alonso's appointment is: 'Signed, sealed, delivered.'
Another claimed that Alonso is the 'ideal successor' to Klopp at Liverpool. They wrote: 'What a manager, what a man. As a leader there are many resemblances to Klopp. This *is* the ideal Klopp successor at Liverpool.'
