Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed he has the chance to join Bayern Munich during his time at Anfield.
The German manager, who joined the Reds in 2015, enjoyed great success with Bayern’s Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund.
Klopp led Dortmund to consecutive Bundesliga titles in 2010-2012, breaking Bayern’s stranglehold on the Bundesliga. He also took BvB to the Champions League final in 2013, but was beaten 2-1 by the Bavarians.
He revealed that he has received an offer from the Bundesliga champions to be their manager.
Klopp is talking about which club he could join if he leaves Liverpool. He told The Telegraph (via RousingTheKop):
“The only thing I can do is ask Pep [Guardiola] If he gets tired of all the wins and I take over [Manchester] city. Is that the idea? That doesn’t work, I don’t want to do it. “
“I could have gone to Bayern a few times. I could have won more titles in my life, I say for sure – at least a good chance. I didn’t. I have a contract here, But I’ve never done that. The world isn’t full of winners. The world is full of tryers, hopefully. I try, and sometimes I win with others. I’m happy with that.”
Jurgen Klopp’s big success at Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp has enjoyed huge success at Liverpool, winning the Champions League in 2019. He then guided the Reds to their first Premier League title in 2020, with his side aiming for an unprecedented quadruple this season.
Klopp’s side have lifted the Carabao Cup, beating Chelsea on penalties in the final in February.
They will face the Blues again in the FA Cup final on May 14.
Liverpool are embroiled in a bitter Premier League title race with leaders Manchester City, three points behind Pep Guardiola’s side. The two sides still have two games to play.
Klopp will lead the team to the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 28 to end the season. They are looking to avenge their 3-1 defeat against the Blancos in the 2018 Champions League final.
It’s been a phenomenal season for Klopp’s Liverpool, and a four-peat could be the perfect way to end it.
