The agent of Jurgen Klopp has said that the 52-year-old may consider the prospect of managing Germany in the future. Klopp has been with Liverpool for the past three-and-a-half seasons and in the most-recent campaign, he guided the Reds to the Champions League crown while helping end their seven-year wait for a trophy.

Speaking to Bild, the representative of Klopp said that the German would favour coaching the national team, should Joachim Loew step down from the role in the future, he told: “Jurgen himself once said that in the event that Joachim Low someday no longer wants to be the national coach and it would be possible for him do that, this is an option for him.”

However, he assured the Reds fans that Klopp won’t be leaving Anfield anytime soon and the club may even hand him a new contract, he continued: “Liverpool would even like to extend it his current contract. He felt again at the recent celebrations [after winning the Champions League] what a great club Liverpool is and that he is in the right place at the right time. Jurgen is currently not affordable.”

Klopp had struggled to overcome the hurdle with the Reds during the first two-and-a-half seasons and the club were on the losing end of three finals. However, he managed to make up for the same with the Champions League crown last term while the club were just second in the Premier League by the single point.

For the 2019/2020 season, owner John W Henry has indicated that the Premier League could become the priority for the Reds but so far, Klopp has resisted against making any changes to the first-team. Barring teenage defender Sepp van den Burg, the Reds have not made any other signing, though that could change during the closing stages of the summer transfer window.
