Jurgen Klopp too busy building ‘Liverpool 2.0’ to consider Germany job

Jurgen Klopp has addressed the speculation linking him to the Germany national team job, asserting his complete dedication to developing “Liverpool 2.0.”

Despite his contract with Liverpool extending until 2026, Klopp was mentioned as a potential candidate to succeed Hansi Flick after his dismissal. Klopp, at 56 years old, signed a new contract last year and has no plans to leave Liverpool, where the team has made an impressive start to the current Premier League season.

“We’re building Liverpool 2.0 here, we want to attack again and not just look at how much longer can we go on. I have a loyalty to Liverpool,” Klopp said while speaking to RTL.

“My heart is here in Liverpool. You can’t just cut out the eight years. I signed a contract here and, as far as I can remember, I wasn’t drugged or tied up and had to sign with my mouth. That was a free decision. And that’s why it doesn’t fit.”

Julian Nagelsmann, the former Bayern Munich manager, has purportedly reached an agreement to become the next Germany national team coach. This comes after he was heavily associated with Chelsea and Spurs during the summer transfer window.

Speaking on the imminent appointment of Nagelsmann. Klopp added: “I think Julian is a great solution because he is a great coach. I would be very happy about it – if it happens that way.

“Age? It doesn’t matter! He had already proven at 28 that he is a fantastic coach. He has eight years of experience. Others have that at 45 or 50 – at the highest level. That is not a criteria at all.”
