Jurgen Klopp refuses to rule out managing Bayern Munich ‘if the timing is right’ but says he is happy at Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp appears to have not ruled out managing Bayern Munich once he has finished with Liverpool – but he insists he is happy at Anfield for now.
Despite leading Bayern back to the top of the Bundesliga following a comprehensive 5-0 win over Borussia Dortmund, former Croatia international Niko Kovac remains under pressure to keep his job.
Klopp however, has led Liverpool to the top of the Premier League and could very well win them a first top flight title since 1990.
He also spent seven years in charge of Dortmund before moving to England, and he’s understood to be on Bayern’s radar.
“I have a contract at Liverpool until 2022,” Klopp said to German newspaper Die Welt. “And no one here has the feeling that we should end it – neither from the side of the owner nor my side.

“I do not know (about managing Bayern). There’s a long way to go.
“Basically, football is like this: The opportunity has to be right, and the timing has to be right.
“But I’m totally happy here and do not feel like I’m finished here. Our team has a good age structure and we can work together for a while.”
The Reds currently lead the Premier League by two points, though second place Manchester City will return to the top of the table should they win their game in hand.
