Jurgen Klopp Says Bayern Munich Did Not Recruit Him



It only seems natural that Jurgen Klopp would be linked with the Bayern Munich job. You have one of the finest Germans managing in world football today, potentially paired up with the dominant Deutschland superpower.

Klopp had a phenomenal run of success with two Bundesliga clubs, Borussia Dortmund and Mainz, with his 2012 BVB side the last non Bayern team to claim the title. With another managerial change taking place in Munich next season (Niko Kovac replaces the retiring Jupp Heynckes), it’s the perfect time to revisit this idea.


However, Klopp said Bayern did not come calling this time- due to his contract not having a release clause.

“It’s a fact that I never had any release clauses in my contracts,” the 50-year old said to said to Sky Germany.

“If Bayern would have indeed been interested, independent of any decision I’d have made, it would have been a complicated transfer because I am under contract here for four more years, and Liverpool are not exactly unhappy with me. That’s why it makes total sense, they didn’t ask in the first place.”

Klopp added that he does not plan on coaching until very late in life, and that if he were to leave Liverpool, he would take a sabbatical before starting his next job.

“I can’t rule out that I will call it a day way before other coaches usually stop,” Klopp continued.

“I feel that it’s super intense, and I am not planning to die on the bench.

“I will definitely take a year off after Liverpool. That’s a clear agreement I have with my family. And from today’s point of view, I can’t rule out that I then say: ‘Well, that was a lot of fun…'”

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool head to last place West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, before beginning the semifinal round of UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night when they host AS Roma.
