Why rumours linking Jurgen Klopp with Bayern Munich are bullsh*t

2
Jurgen Klopp, Manager of Liverpool looks on while his team warm up during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Leicester City at Anfield on September 10, 2016 in Liverpool, England.

The Daily Star has tentatively linked Jurgen Klopp with a move to Bayern Munich and it doesn’t make sense.

You would think, given Liverpool’s electrifying form, that there would be no reason to think that anyone in the first team setup would want a move elsewhere. Certainly not the starting eleven, and certainly not Jurgen Klopp.

That being said, however, the Daily Star has claimed that Bayern Munich views Klopp as the ideal replacement for Carlo Ancelotti whose deal with the Bundesliga club expires in 2019.

The article goes on to say that Klopp may find it “almost impossible” to resist the temptation of joining Bayern. If this was the case, then why didn’t Kloppo wait until Pep Guardiola left the German club and then join, or sign with Real Madrid when Rafa Benitez left the Spanish capital?

It’s simple: he doesn’t fancy the type of club that Bayern, Real Madrid and Manchester United are. He prefers teams like Mainz, Dortmund and Liverpool where there is a culture of working for what you earn. The aforementioned three clubs are all mega rich and buy their players instead of training and developing them into superstars.

Furthermore, Klopp has already declared that he would be quite happy if he retired with Liverpool as the last club that he managed.

Funnily enough, in another article from the Daily Star these quotes from Klopp directly contradict what has recently emerged:

“Do I want another club in Germany? No. In England? No. In Asia, Russia or the United Arab Emirates? No, no, no.

“And then I thought that I am already at the right club and why should I worry about how long I am here for. If I am at the end of my career has managed only three clubs then at least they were great clubs.”

So, if Klopp has, as recently as the 17 of August, said that he’d be happy with never managing another club, then what has changed? Nothing. That’s why these rumours are absolutely absurd.

Liverpool is fourth in the Premier League, level on points with Arsenal, and there is no indication that Klopp’s side will be relenting in their gegenpressing machine which, aside from a fluke at Burnley, has been irrepressible in the opening six games of the Premier League season.

Klopp won’t be letting bullsh*t rumours distract him or his team from the task at hand which is getting as many points on the board and getting to the latter stages of the domestic tournaments. Up next is Swansea, a perfect opportunity for Liverpool to continue building momentum before hosting eternal rivals Manchester United at Anfield on the 17th of October.

  1. Klopp is happy at Liverpool but make no mistake, if Bayern came calling, he would go.

    However Carlo is loved at Bayern, hasn’t lost a game, talk of already extending his stay (from within the club, not softcore porn newspaper) so this isn’t likely to happen.

    Bayern are also not the same type of club as real or united, they do a lot of internal development and don’t throw away money for the sake of it.

  2. First for all what do you mean by “he doesn’t fancy the type of club that Bayern, Real Madrid and Manchester United are. He prefers teams like Mainz, Dortmund and Liverpool where there is a culture of working for what you earn. The aforementioned three clubs are all mega rich and buy their players instead of training and developing them into superstars”…NOPE theres more culture at bayern munich than liverpool. And why wouldn’t klopp can’t join bayern..bayern are more stable in European football,more successful,have batter squad,,good structure in every department and a hugely growing club worldwide…if you listen to xabi alonso’s recent interview he had said bayern is more closeer to fans than both Liverpool and real madrid. And no bayern is not same as real,barca,psg,man city,united,juventus…they all spent cheaply many times,bayern is not like that they spend good amount money on quality players they never spent like 100m on one particular player nope .never.and yes why he didn’t chose bayern when pep was about to leave..well the answer is simple pep decided pretty late that he gonna leave before klopp joined liverpool and of course there were rumours that klopp also wanted to coach bayern bt he don’t want sabtectical either [ yes there were memes that if klopp would had wait for atleast two or three months he will end up with bayern,real,man utd,man city,chelsea,psg,thought he got unlucky that he only had Liverpool to offer at that time]

    “buy their players instead of training and developing them into superstars.” …lol how many of Liverpool academic players are currently playing regularly in their first team…karius nope,coutinho nope,firmino nope..zero yes..atleast bayern have four players from their own youth program and three four had left just in last few transfer window. All i can say is bayern would be a dream project.. I’m not criticizing Liverpool either,they are improving a lot since klopp taking charge. All in all i don’t think klopp will leave liverpool atleast not until next two three years so does carlo, i don’t sure what after that bt if bayern come calling he shouldn’t miss the chance #miasanmia #ynwa
