Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern will be cautious of the news coming out that Bayern Munich could be looking to take Jurgen Klopp away from Anfield in the future, however, his agent has claimed that there is still work to do.
German media outlet Sport1 is reporting that Marc Kosicke has left the door wide open for his client to return back to Germany and manage the Bundesliga giants in the future and would be seen as a “good fit”.
Klopp’s agent also claimed that the former Borussia Dortmund boss has always “often” been on the list of Bayern Munich due to his connections with the people at the club, however, admitted it was never the right time.
“He is under contract until 2022 and I don’t think his work is finished [at Liverpool] yet,” he told Sport1.
“But you have to bear in mind many factors. When you move to England, you cannot underestimate the lack of a winter break. This reduces your lifetime.
“I have to say that Bayern was often an option because Jurgen knows Uli Hoeness very well. But it was never the right time and nothing definite came of it.”
Bayern will be looking for a new manager in the summer as it is expected Jupp Heynckes will leave his position, however, Liverpool fans will be delighted that Kosicke has not spoken to the club about Klopp. A hugely popular figure around world football, Klopp’s brand of attacking play must be attractive to potential employers.
After revamping the Reds of late, our local Liverpudlians are hoping he never leaves!
“Coaching one of the big clubs in Europe isn’t something that is unattractive, but everything has to suit. Yes, Bayern are looking for a coach in the summer, but Jurgen has a long contract. At the moment, Jurgen isn’t thinking about coaching another club than the Reds,” he added.
“No coach in the world is bigger than any club. Generally, the club is always bigger. Jurgen isn’t too big for Bayern Munich and Bayern Munich isn’t too big for him. He definitely could do a very good job there. Bayern and Klopp would be a good fit, but it isn’t something that is an option at the moment.”
Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern will be concerned with the news that Klopp could be a ‘good fit’ for Bayern Munich, especially with the news that their manager is to leave the Allianz Arena this summer. Reds supporters will be hoping the Bundesliga giants do not come calling and hope the German remains at Anfield for years to come.
As you can imagine, they fear losing the former Dortmund coach could ruin the club’s progress after a wonderful time of things in recent months.
Liverpool fans, what do you think of the news that Klopp could head to Bayern Munich? Let us know below!
