Jurgen Klopp 'More Likely To Become England Manager' When Liverpool Contract Expires

Jurgen Klopp is "more likely" to become England manager than Germany boss when his Liverpool stint is up, reports say.

Klopp left Borussia Dortmund at the end of the 2014/15 Bundesliga campaign but wasn't out of the game all that long, returning to management to replace Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool in October.

He's since won the Premier League, Champions League, Carabao Cup and Club World Cup during a glittering stint at Anfield.

Klopp is contracted until 2024 and has talked about taking a sabbatical when his deal expires.

But where would he go after leaving Liverpool? According to German outlet BILD, Klopp would be more likely to take the reins at England than manage his own national team.

The former Mainz manager was a strong candidate to replace Joachim Low after Euro 2020 but distanced himself from the position prior to Hansi Flick's appointment.

However, the England job could be a different story. BILD say that Klopp has developed strong connections with England players, specifically Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Klopp's fast-paced, exciting brand of football has also earned rave reviews from fans, while he has also not shied away from openly discussing political and social issues in the country.

According to James Pearce from The Athletic, Klopp will indeed leave in two years time as he has promised his family that he will take a break.

Commenting on the matter previously, Klopp said: "If I decide for myself that I can't go on anymore, I'll take a break.

"I have absolute energy, but I have one problem: I can't do 'a little bit'. I can only do 'all or nothing'. But the chances are very high that my energy levels will go up again [after a break]."

Coincidentally, Gareth Southgate's England contract is up in 2014 after he penned an extension in November.
