Klopp insists he would reject Germany job as pressure grows on Low following 6-0 loss

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he would turn down the Germany job if approached, despite the recent erratic performances under coach Joachim Low.

World Cup winning coach Low has been in charge of Die Mannschaft since 2006 and led his side to success in Brazil in 2014 before claiming the Confederations Cup trophy back in 2017.

Despite those two notable triumphs, things have not exactly gone to plan for the 60-year-old in more recent years, with Germany putting in a disappointing display at Euro 2016, before finishing bottom of their group at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Their latest embarrassment came in the Nations League this week, as Spain hit Low’s side for six courtesy of a scintillating hat-trick from Manchester City’s Ferran Torres, seeing Luis Enrique’s side qualify for next October’s finals.

That showing has only served to heighten the scrutiny over the German’s position at the helm and has led to rumours of a potential move for Low’s compatriot Klopp, with the 53-year-old having impressed in the dugout at both Borussia Dortmund and with Liverpool.

Despite such rumours, however, the Reds manager has quashed the speculation, insisting that while the Germany job is an option for the future, his current focus is all about the current Premier League champions.

“Maybe in the future but now, no, because now I have no time,” he said that a press conference ahead of Liverpool’s game against Leicester.

“I also have a job – a pretty intense job by the way.

“I am not sure if anybody has asked after me but if they don’t know I have a job here at Liverpool – even though 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.”
