Manuel Neuer speaks out on possibility of Jurgen Klopp becoming Bayern Munich manager

Manuel Neuer speaks out on possibility of Jurgen Klopp becoming Bayern Munich manager

Bayern Munich and Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has spoken on Jurgen Klopp joining Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich and Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has opened up on the potential arrival of Jurgen Klopp as manager following his exit from Liverpool.

Klopp will depart his role as manager of Liverpool at the end of the season after nine years in charge of the Merseyside club.

The German shocked the world of football when he announced he would be leaving on Friday, and turned down a fresh offer from FSG to perform a U-turn and remain at the club.

Klopp hasn't given many hints about where his future lies, but confirmed in a press conference he wouldn't manage another English club out of loyalty to Liverpool.

"I can promise that. Even if I have nothing to eat, it will not happen," He reiterated to the media.

Due to Klopp's nationality, one of the clubs he was always going to be linked with was Bayern Munich, who are currently managed by Thomas Tuchel.

Tuchel's side currently sit second in the Bundesliga, and due to the cutthroat nature of the Bayern job, it wouldn't be surprising if the former Chelsea boss was given the boot if they fail to win their 12th straight league title.

Klopp's loyalties to Borussia Dortmund may be a factor when considering the Bayern job, but both players and coaches have frequently moved between the two German powerhouses.

During a recent meeting with supporters, Bayern captain Manuel Neuer faced questions regarding the potential appointment of Klopp at the club.

Quoted by Bild, Neuer said: “I don’t think FC Bayern has anything against that, because he’s a renowned, very good, experienced, tactically astute coach who has gained big respect from all footballers and athletes and I believe that he’s definitely a potential candidate who could work for Bayern at some point.

“Whether he wants to do that is of course his business. Maybe he wants to take a break first. Maybe he no longer wants the day-to-day business - I can imagine him possibly being the national team coach one day. Of course, that mainly depends on him.” He stated.
