Klopp: Being linked to Germany job is
Jurgen Klopp has been the manager of Liverpool since 2015 and has recently ruled out leaving the club before his contract is up to manage the German national team. Rumours of Klopp managing his home country have been circulating for years, but have been amplified due to the team's poor performances. They've been knocked out of the last two World Cups at the group stage and were eliminated in the Euros two years ago. As hosts of Euro 2024, Germany is under a lot of pressure to perform, with current coach Hansi Flick having won just four of his last 16 games.

Klopp is aware of the prestigious honour that comes with coaching Germany, but is adamant that he will not be replacing Flick. He has explained that his loyalty to Liverpool and its fans is a priority and that his current responsibility to the club must be respected. The 56-year-old also stated that he is keen to keep his options open for after he leaves the Reds.

Klopp has already managed 433 games with Liverpool, and should he stay until 2026, he will have been with the club for just shy of 11 years. During this time, he has won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and Club World Cup. The team is currently in Germany for the first part of their pre-season tour and will play Greuther Furth on Monday.
