Jurgen Klopp makes England prediction and names his Euro 2024 winners

Jurgen Klopp makes England prediction and names his Euro 2024 winners

The former Liverpool manager has been impressed by Spain.

After watching the group stages at Euro 2024, former Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has given his thoughts on who will be crowned champions.

Klopp is currently enjoying life on the Spanish island of Majorca after leaving Anfield at the end of the season.

The 57-year-old plans on taking an extended break from football to recharge his batteries, but says he has no plans on retiring from the game.

Speaking about his life in Majorca and the £3.4 million eco-villa he owns on the Balearic island, he told Bild: "I've dreamed of having a house in the south all my life. I like the weather, the climate, I like the people."

He added: "There are lots of things I like here and also people I already know. It's not like I'm looking for new friends. I already have friends for life, and if some of them are here too, that's cool."

Dressed in the shirt of his home nation, the German decided to attend the Mallorca Tennis Championships in Santa Ponsa, where he was asked a range of subjects by ESPN presenter Agos Larocca.

As well as speaking about life in Majorca, Klopp was asked who will win this summer's European Championship – and it sounds like he is backing Luis de la Fuente's in-form Spain.

"At the moment it looks a little bit like Spain could do it," he said. "But Germany Is good, France can be good, and England will be better, definitely."

Klopp also gave his take on who will be victorious at this summer's Copa America, adding: "Argentina. Or Brazil. Or Colombia. Or Uruguay. I texted yesterday with Alisson, I cannot make that decision."

Luis de la Fuente, meanwhile, believes his side should be considered favourites for Euro 2024 following their convincing 4-1 win over Georgia on Sunday.

"The objective is to win another match and knowing that we are going to play against Germany," he said.

"With all due respect to the other players, we have the best team and players in the world. That doesn’t mean we are sure to win, but we are going to fight for it

"All teams have flaws. We have our own set of tools and also our weaknesses."

He added: "Germany is a great team, with great individual players and they work very well as a team. They are facing a very similar team, very organised, difficult to beat, very hungry.

"It will be a very close match and it will be the details that will determine the match. We are very confident in ourselves."
