Jamie Carragher: Why Jurgen Klopp won’t leave Liverpool FC for Bayern Munich
Liverpool FC legend Jamie Carragher explains why Jurgen Klopp won't leave for Bayern Munich
Jamie Carragher has poured cold water on talk of Jurgen Klopp becoming Bayern Munich manager in the future.
The Liverpool FC boss has been the subject of speculation in the current campaign given the Merseyside outfit’s impressive improvement.
Klopp has been regularly linked with the Bayern Munich role as the Bundesliga giants come to the end of an era at the Allianz Arena.
Real Madrid were also touted with an interest in Klopp before Zinedine Zidane secured a return to the Spanish giants.
Klopp led Borussia Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles and reached the Champions League final in 2013 before a 2-1 loss to Bayern.
Bayern legend Franz Beckenbauer described Klopp as the “perfect fit” for the Bundesliga giants, to further fuel the speculation.
However, former Liverpool FC defender Carragher is relaxed about Klopp’s future at the 18-time English champions.
“It doesn’t really worry me that Franz Beckenbauer says he is the perfect fit for Bayern Munich,” Carragher is quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.
“Jurgen Klopp has only had three clubs in his managerial career, and none of them have been a Bayern Munich-type club, a Real Madrid or that type of club.
“He’s always been at clubs where the feeling is you are fighting against those clubs. Maybe that’s what brings out the best in Jurgen Klopp.”
Liverpool FC are still waiting to win their first trophy under Klopp following his appointment as Brendan Rodgers’ replacement in October 2015.
The Reds lost to Manchester City in the League Cup in February 2016 in Klopp’s first final as Liverpool FC boss.
The Merseyside outfit suffered a 3-1 defeat by Sevilla in the Europa League final three months later.
Liverpool FC lost to Real Madrid by the same scoreline in the Champions League showpiece last May.
