Liverpool have one of the best managers in world football, according to many he is the best. The gaffer has done such a good job at the club that he is being linked with the highest office in the game in his homeland. Thankfully, Jürgen Klopp has dismissed speculation linking him with the Germany job.
Jürgen Klopp linked with Germany job
The current German national team coach Joachim Low is under fire after his side were thrashed 6-0 by Spain.
The humiliating defeat added further pressure on his job with many believing that his mostly successful era at the helm is petering out.
There have been suggestions that Jürgen Klopp would be offered the Germany job should Low be dismissed.
Reports in Germany claimed that the Reds’ boss is one of two candidates being lined up, along with Bayern Munich chief Hansi Flick.

Klopp dismisses Germany speculation
Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of the visit from Leicester City, Jürgen Klopp dismissed speculation linking him with the Germany job.
He uttered those four words we were dying to here, saying ‘I will not go’.
The boss did, however, leave the door open to taking on the role in the future, saying (via Daily Mail):
“Maybe in the future but now, no, because I have no time.
“I also have a job – a pretty intense job by the way.
“I am not sure if anybody has asked me but if they don’t know I have a job here at Liverpool – even if the weather is bad again!
“I like it and I am responsible for a lot of things here so I will not go and search for another challenge.”
What RTK has to say
Jürgen Klopp taking the Germany job now was always a long shot.
The boss is fiercely loyal, he wouldn’t walk out on his contract at the Reds early.
We likely have him with his for the duration of his contract which runs until 2024, we’ll be savouring every last moment.
Hopefully we win enough between now and then to convince him to stay on a bit longer.
