Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has hinted at the one job outside Dortmund he'd consider.
Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has suggested that he’d be interested in coaching the German national team at some point in the future.
The Dortmund boss has created an impressive and healthy reputation for himself in the German game, which sees him continuously linked with the top jobs around Europe and most recently Manchester United.
Klopp has been suggested as a replacement for David Moyes should the Glazers want to get red of the Scot from the Old Trafford hot seat at the end of the season. However, if that’s the direction they wish to go in, they may have a very difficult time convincing Klopp to change his intended career path.
“Obviously it’s basically a very attractive proposition. I’m very happy living in Germany I think it’s a fantastic country and the people are pretty cool. If they were enthusiastic about me taking on the national team at some point I’d obviously think it over,” he told FIFA in an interview.
Klopp’s current deal with Dortmund doesn’t expire until 2018 and he has no reason to move away while he’s trying to get his side back up to Bayern Munich’s level at the top of the Bundesliga and in the Champions League.
His BVB side have been challenged in a big way by the Bayern Munich of last season and with the way Pep Guardiola has developed the champions this season. That will create something to aim for and achieve with a boss who has so far done a great job in West Germany.
Whether he’ll turn his back on that challenge is extremely doubtful, regardless of the riches and the incentives that Manchester United could offer him if they wanted to replace Moyes.
“Quite a lot of things would have to come together for that to happen. But joking aside we have a fantastic national coach and I have a terrific job with Borussia Dortmund, so everything’s fine,” added Klopp.
It seems quite cast iron that Klopp is set for the long haul at Dortmund or at least until he wins the league again or knocks Bayern Munich off of their perch in the Champions League.
Then it’s clear that he’d be interested in the Germany job if the public support was behind him but right now, that seems like the only job that would get him to turn his back on Dortmund and Joachim Low doesn’t look set for the sack just yet.
