Jurgen Klopp’s agent Kosicke claims that Klopp would be good fit for the Bundesliga giants
Jurgen Klopp who is currently the manager of Merseyside club Liverpool was appointed as their manager after Brendan Rodgers was sacked on October 2015.
After disappointing results on that season Klopp has made a decent comeback with the reds finishing 4th in Premier League last season and are currently placed at 3rd and can finish in 2nd spot by the end of the season.
Liverpool has reached the Quarter finals of UEFA Champions League under the German and is one of the favourites for winning it.
Bayern Munich who are currently Bundesliga toppers with 17 points ahead of 2nd placed Schalke are in search of a new manager as Jupp Heynckes is going to leave at the end of this season. Marc Kosicke knows that the 50 year old will not leave Anfield this season because his contract will expire on 2022. “He is under control until 2022 and I don’t think is work is finished (At Liverpool) yet” Mark Kosicke told Sport1.
Klopp who was manager of Borussia Dortmund for 7 years has lots of Bundesliga experience and seems as the ideal replacement for Heynckes. Bayern wanted Klopp before also during his managing days at Dortmund but no deal was finalised then.
Mark Kosicke also added, “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….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.”
Kosicke explains how the timing for Klopp to arrive at Allianz Arena was never right.
“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,” he added.
“Back then Franz Beckenbauer was president and the pair worked together as TV experts during the 2006 World Cup. They get on well and are still in contact. But Jurgen can definitely end his coaching career without having coached Bayern Munich.”
