Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that his heart belongs to the Reds and does not have the intention of accepting Germany’s managerial offer.
Klopp was asked whether he had been tempted by the German national team job.
His nation is set to appoint Julian Naglesmann as their new manager, meaning that Klopp has less reason to consider leaving Liverpool.
“I think Julian is a great solution because he is a great coach. I would be very happy about it – if it happens that way,” Klopp told RTL.
“Age? It doesn’t matter! He had already proven at 28 that he is a fantastic coach. He has eight years of experience. Others have that at 45 or 50 – at the highest level. That is not a criteria at all.”
“We’re building Liverpool 2.0 here, we want to attack again and not just look at how much longer can we go on?” he continued.
“I have a loyalty to Liverpool. My heart is here in Liverpool. You can’t just cut out the eight years.
“I signed a contract here and, as far as I can remember, I wasn’t drugged or tied up and had to sign with my mouth. That was a free decision. And that’s why it doesn’t fit.”
In an interview for The Guardian in April 2018, Klopp expressed his opposition to Brexit claiming that it “makes no sense” and advocated for a second referendum.
Politically, Klopp considers himself to be left-wing. He told journalist Raphael Honigstein: “I’m on the left, of course. More left than middle. I believe in the welfare state. I’m not privately insured. I would never vote for a party because they promised to lower the top tax rate. My political understanding is this: if I am doing well, I want others to do well, too. If there’s something I will never do in my life it is vote for the right”.Copyright © 2023 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
