Jurgen Klopp leaving Liverpool scenario emerges amid claims his head could be turned
Peter Schmeichel reckons Jurgen Klopp might consider leaving Liverpool if the Bayern Munich job became available.
But Jamie Carragher has rubbished the suggestion, saying the German will see out the remainder of his Liverpool contract, regardless of interest from other top clubs.
Klopp was recently linked with the Germany national team job after Joachim Low announced plans to step down.
The German ruled out taking the job, pointing out that he is contracted at Anfield until 2024.
But former Manchester United goalkeeper Schmeichel reckons a different job would probably appeal to Klopp.
“Think about this scenario. Let’s play with the idea that Hans-Dieter Flick takes the German job, which is not a given,” Schmeichel said on CBS Sports.
“Then Bayern needs a new coach and Jurgen Klopp has been offered that job before. That is an absolute top job.
“And it’s a top job in his own country. You say that he would never leave Liverpool for the German job. But would he leave it for Bayern Munich?”
Carragher was quick to respond and shut down the suggestion, saying there is “no chance” Klopp cuts short his stay on Merseyside and joins Bayern Munich.
“He may leave it when his contract finishes but I don’t think he would break his contract,” said the former Liverpool centre-back.
“In his two previous jobs, he has always left when his contract has finished. He has come out and stated that publicly in the last week or so.
“I would imagine he would stand by his word. And he would want to improve on the season Liverpool have had this season.”
