Jurgen Klopp’s stance on taking Bayern Munich job with Tuchel to leave | Football | Sport

Jurgen Klopp has no intention of becoming Bayern Munich manager at the end of the season, says his agent Marc Kosicke. The German revealed earlier this year that he will leave Liverpool this summer in favour of spending some time away from the touchline to recuperate.

In a shock announcement made in late January, Klopp announced that he would be parting ways with the Reds at the end of the campaign as he felt he was ‘running out of energy’ in the job. The ex-Borussia Dortmund boss revealed that he felt it was his responsibility to make the decision over his future as he was never truly at risk of being sacked due to his reputation at the club.

The German spoke of how he has no intention of returning to the Premier League in the future due to the respect he has for Liverpool and has since also refused to be drawn into speaking about the prospect of international management.

Instead, Klopp is keen to spend a year away from football so that he can enjoy a sense of normality following many years of coaching. However, it was speculated the summer-time vacancy at Bayern might throw a spanner in the works for the 56-year-old.

The Bundesliga side have declared that they will be parting ways with Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season following three consecutive defeats in all competitions. But a move to the Allianz Arena has not prompted a rethink by Klopp.

His agent Kosicke told Sky Sports Germany: “Jurgen Klopp will not coach any club or national team for a year after this current season. That remains unchanged.”

Sky Sports went on to state that those at Bayern feel that it is ‘100 per cent ruled out’ that the Reds boss would join the Bavarians, with other potential managers being considered instead. Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso is high on the shortlist for Bayern with the Spaniard having guided the club to the top of the Bundesliga whilst remaining unbeaten.

Alonso is not short of suitors though, with Liverpool also keen to acquire the services of their former midfielder having been impressed by how he has taken to life in management at the BayerArena. Alonso has a tough choice to make when considering his next move, though remaining with Leverkusen should also not be ruled out.
