Jurgen Klopp has not yet finished a full season with the Anfield outfit but there are already rumors going around about him quitting the club.
According to The Sun, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could walk away from the job at Anfield if he is given a chance to succeed Joachim Low as the coach of the German national team.
According to the report, German FA has shortlisted Jurgen Klopp to replace Low whose contract with the team expires in 2018 and that the Liverpool boss will be more than happy to take over his country’s national team.
The 56-year old Low has been in charge of the national team since the EUROs in 2008 where he lost the final to a Fernando Torres goal against Spain.
His biggest achievement is lifting the World Cup with Germany in 2014 against Argentina.
He will lead Germany into the EURO16 in France later this year and it will be his fifth major tournament since taking charge of the squad. However, his contract is coming to an end in two years time and it is understood that there is little to no chance of low extending his contract.
Jurgen Klopp, who moved to Liverpool just three months into the Premier League season is contracted with the Anfield outfit till 2018 and his contract expires just months before the World Cup in that year.
And it is understood that the German FA are ready to offer Klopp the job which might be hard to reduce as he will be trying to add to his already successful managerial career.
He has already won the Bundesliga twice in his time in Germany and has also led Dortmund to a Champions League final. His start in the Premier League has not been all easy but he has already shown great promise at Anfield.
It will be interesting to see if Klopp leaves Anfield in just 3 years but 2018 is a long way away from now and the manager will surely be concentrating on the quarter-final clash between Liverpool and his ex-club Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League.
Do you think Klopp can succeed as the head coach of Germany?
