‘It’s the worst timing to leave Liverpool’

Simon Jordan insists there is ‘no jeopardy’ of Jurgen Klopp leaving Liverpool to take over as manager of the Germany national team.

The German Football Association announced on Tuesday morning Joachim Low will step down as the senior men’s team boss following this summer’s Euro 2020, after asking to end his contract a year early, and Klopp was quickly linked as a possible replacement.

There has been a lot of noise over Klopp’s future in charge at Liverpool following their recent total collapse of form – with the Premier League champions eighth in the table after suffering six straight home defeats.

More questions will surely now be asked following news of Low’s impending exit from the Germany set-up.

But talkSPORT pundit Jordan insists there’s no chance Klopp will be tempted, saying the timing is all wrong and the much-loved coach would not leave Liverpool in the lurch.

“Look at the timing of this,” he told talkSPORT host Jim White.

“First of all, Klopp has got a massive rebuild on his hand, because he’s watching his Liverpool team deteriorate on a week-by-week basis and becoming dismantled in front of his own eyes.

“I just think the timing of this is probably all wrong for Jurgen Klopp.

“He’s still a very young manager in real terms and going to the national team is almost a part-time job despite the protestations of the people who do it. Football managers like to be involved on a day-to-day basis, and national teams don’t provide that.

“I don’t think there’s any jeopardy that Jurgen Klopp is going to leave Liverpool.

“Also, he’s got to rebuild Liverpool! This is probably the worst time for Klopp to be leaving Liverpool because of the legacy he would leave…

“If he was perhaps considering it [the Germany job] – which he probably isn’t, it’s only because we’re linking the two together because of the obvious synergy – he would be leaving Liverpool in disarray.

“He’s not going to do that, I don’t think so.

Liverpool fans’ opinions on the future of Jurgen Klopp are split, with one claiming he should do the honourable thing and resign!

“Do we think the lure of a national team job is as it once was for domestic managers?

“Using England as an example, when Terry Venables and Brian Clough were going for it the England manager’s job had more prestige, but now it’s considered a poisoned chalice, a difficult task, a road to nowhere and all you’re going to do at some point is get ridiculed.

“It’s an honour, of course it is, but the whole landscape has changed in football, people want to manage the big clubs rather than ascend to the top of the rank.”
