Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp responds to Bayern Munich president Franz Beckenbauers high praise

Bayern Munich legend Franz Beckenabauer admitted he hoped Jurgen Klopp would return to Germany in the near future

Jurgen Klopp has dismissed speculation that he could leave Liverpool to become Bayern Munich boss after Franz Beckenbauer endorsed the move.

Klopp has long been targeted by Bayern due to his great success in the Bundesliga, claiming two German titles with Borussia Dortmund against the countrys biggest side.

The ex-Reds striker told The Mirror: On the pitch, Klopp needs a midfielder who, like Fernandinho at City, will function at 9.8/10 over a season and a striker who will challenge Roberto Firmino on a regular basis, as well as a couple more to flesh out the squad.

And following on from Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham that saw them lift the Champions League trophy, Bayern president Beckenbauer expressed his desire for Klopp to join the club one day.

“I want nothing more than to see Klopp come to Bayern one day, it would be a good fit,” Beckenbauer told German newspaper Bild.

“Jurgen brought a new type of football to Germany… what he began in Dortmund, he has refined in Liverpool.”

Im not sure if that gap will ever close fully, given Citys resources, but theres no better time for Liverpool to narrow it further than after a Champions League triumph.

But Klopp has no plans to leave Liverpool anytime soon and has replied to Beckenbauer’s comments.

“I like Franz — and he likes me,” Klopp responded to Bild. “But I have a long-term contract at Liverpool.

“However, both Bayern and Borussia Dortmund have very good coaches. And what could be in five years or more, I do not know.

Liverpool need to find a new midfielder like Fernandinho at Manchester City and a striker who will challenge Roberto Firmino, says Stan Collymore.
