Agent reveals Klopp keen to manage Germany one day

Jurgen Klopp is apparently open to becoming Germany manager one day, although his agent insists he remains happy at Anfield for now.

Liverpool are keen to extend the 52-year-old’s contract at the club, with Klopp having guided them to Champions League success last season.

The German’s agent, Marc Kosicke, says his client is happy with life on Merseyside, though would be interested in moving into international management in the future.

“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,” he told German outlet Welt.

Klopp’s current contract expires in 2022, with Liverpool currently keen on handing an extension to the former Borussia Dortmund coach. Kosicke revealed talks have begun over a new deal at Anfield, and says it would be difficult, and too expensive, for any side to tempt Klopp away from the club.

“Liverpool would even like to extend it (his current contract),” he added.

“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. But it is difficult to measure the transfer fee in his case anyway.

“How is this going to work for a coach who has increased the club’s value from nearly £900million to just under £2.8billion? That is not how it works.”
