Germany’s Football Association are reportedly internally discussing an approach for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to replace Hansi Flick.

According to Bild, the DFB are considering a move for the Anfield boss despite the German FA knowing well enough that any attempt to appoint Klopp will be a wasted one.

Flick’s position as manager of Germany has never been under more pressure after an embarrassing 4-1 loss last night to Japan in an international friendly in Wolfsburg.

And the DFB are now looking at potential candidates to replace the former Bayern Munich manager, with Klopp’s name of course coming up, alongside Julian Nagelsmann and Louis van Gaal.

Lauded as a ‘special’ coach by James Milner, the odds of Klopp leaving Liverpool to take the Germany job remain as low as they ever have been.

And with the German FA aware that Klopp will likely reject any approach over the soon-to-be vacant role, the DFB should already consider a new move for another figure.

Klopp has been linked with the Germany job ever since the Liverpool manager first made a name for himself as a coach in his homeland.

And whilst being appointed as the Germany manager this year ahead of Euro 2024 seems unlikely, Klopp could consider the role in the coming years once he’s left Liverpool.

Indeed, Klopp won’t be at Liverpool for long, and being appointed as manager of Germany could appeal to the Reds boss, who could be a sensation on the international stage.
