Full response - Jurgen Klopp answers question he could quit Anfield


Jurgen Klopp has previously revealed he'd like to return to Germany once his days managing Liverpool are behind him

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp's future has been a topic of debate for some time now with results going against Liverpool.

And on Tuesday Joachim Low announced he will be standing down as Germany manager after this summer's European Championships.

Managing Germany ahead of Euro 2024, which will be staged in his home nation, would likely appeal to Klopp.

But the Liverpool manager has batted away the suggestion he's interested in becoming Germany boss this Tuesday and made it very clear he remains dedicated to turning things around at Anfield.

"Maybe you should ask the question differently if that's the question you want to ask: if I'm available for the job of the coach for the German national team in the summer? No," Klopp said.

"After the summer, no. Joachim Low did an incredible job for so many years – I think he is the longest servant we've ever had in Germany, if I am right, and one of the most successful for sure.

"He did an incredible job and I understand he wants to have this highlight for him, a European Championship and tries to squeeze everything out that he can in this tournament, and then somebody else will do the job.

"I am pretty sure with the amount of really good German managers at the moment the German FA will find a good solution."

The  Liverpool manager added: "Yes, I was asked. I didn't mention it because Joachim Low had said he would step down.

"I didn't say it proactively, I just said what I would say when they mention names like mine. I said 'no' this, or after this summer or whenever it will be, I will not be available as a potential coach of the German team."

And finally, he said: "I have three years left at Liverpool this summer, don't I?

"It's a simple statement, a simple situation: you sign a contract and you would normally try to stick to that contract, don't you?

"I had contracts at Mainz where I stuck with them even though there was interest from other Bundesliga teams with more money. It is just timing and money, if it doesn't work out then you don't need to lose any sleep over it. I don't have a problem with it."
