Phil Neville has warned Liverpool that Bayern Munich could look to appoint Jurgen Klopp.

The Merseyside outfit lost 4-1 to top-four rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Wembely last weekend following a disappointing defensive performance.

Liverpool have failed to make real progress in the Premier League since Klopp was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ replacement in October 2015.

The Reds reached the Europa League final and the League Cup final in the 2015-16 season under Klopp but lost to Sevilla and Manchester City.

Liverpool finished in fourth place in the Premier League table in their first full season under Klopp to secure a return to the Champions League.

Bayern Munich sacked Carlo Ancelotti as their manager last month and have been linked with a move to appoint former Borussia Dortmund coach Klopp.

Jupp Heynckes is currently in charge of Bayern until the end of the season.

Former Manchester United defender Neville warned Liverpool that Bayern could lure Klopp back to Germany at the end of the season.

“The biggest concern for Liverpool might be that there is a German club who are one of the biggest in the world and have a manager until the end of the season,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“They might be looking at Klopp. He is a world-class manager.”
