According to Sky Germany, Jürgen Klopp via his advisor has distanced himself from the Germany job should Hansi Flick be sacked. Since Die Mannschaft’s exit from the World Cup, many have been discussing whether current head coach Flick should stay in until Euro 2024. Rumours of Jürgen Klopp taking the role have since been circulating.
Despite such claims, the Liverpool head coach has conveyed his feelings via his main advisor, Marc Kosicke. Speak to Sky on Friday, Klopp’s right-hand man said: “It’s a media issue.“
He confirmed his stance by explaining: “Jürgen has a contract with Liverpool until 2026 – and he intends to fulfil it.”
In the coming days, the future of Flick will be discussed by board members at the DFB. President Bernd Neuendorf will host an initial analysis regarding Flick with DFB managing director Oliver Bierhoff and come to a conclusion soon. With Liverpool’s owners, the Fenway Sports Group considering to sell the club, Klopp may be tempted if approached by his fellow countrymen.
