- Match Analysis
Liverpool have progressed well under Jurgen Klopp. This season they are at the 3rd position in the Premier League and have reached semi finals of the Champions League after beating Manchester City over the two legs.
There were recent rumors that he was in Bayern Munich’s managerial shortlist due to his long track record of success. Though the German giants have appointed Niko Kovac as their new manager for next season,
But Klopp has denied that there were any contact with Bayern Munich and admitted that if there was any mutual interest it would have been difficult for him to leave. He also added that he does not have any exit clause and wish to see out his remaining contract.
“I’ve never had an exit clause in one of my contracts,” Klopp told Sky Sports Germany. “If Bayern had really been interested, no matter what I would have done, this would have been a complicated move.
“I have a contract for four more years in Liverpool and the club are happy with me. That’s why it makes total sense that they (Bayern) didn’t try.”
Klopp concedes that his intense personality not only made that break a required promise to his family, but also makes it unlikely that he would manage as long as the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.
It’s possible that I will end my career a lot earlier than coaches usually do,” he said. “It’s very intense.
“I don’t want to die on the coaching bench. After Liverpool I will for sure do a one-year break. That’s a clear agreement with my family.”
