Germany eyeing move for Jurgen Klopp as Joachim Low’s successor

By | April 3, 2020

Germany have reportedly identified Liverpool head-coach Jurgen Klopp as the man to take over from Joachim Low in the national team dugout.

Since arriving at Anfield in 2015, Jurgen Klopp has guided the Merseyside Reds to 155 victories from 256 games since he has been in charge, and the 52-year-old who helped them to claim the Champions League trophy is committed to the Reds until 2024.

However, according to The Mirror, Jurgen Klopp has privately admitted that the Merseyside Reds is likely to be his last managerial role at club level, and he is believed to have taken to manage the national team.

The report also suggests that the ex-Borussia Dortmund head-coach has no intention of departing from Anfield before 2022, when Low’s current contract with the national side is set to end.

Liverpool’s owners Fenway Sports Group are believed to be keen on creating their own Sir Alex Ferguson-like era with Jurgen Klopp in charge, however, may face an uphill battle to secure the long-term future of the German boss.

Low has taken charge of 181 games for Germany national team since 2006, claiming the 2014 World Cup, however, failing to advance past the group stage for the next tournament.
