Sky Sports pundit responds to Jurgen Klopp future speculation

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is reportedly on the radar of Bayern Munich.

Former Rangers and Newcastle United manager Graeme Souness has told Sky Sports that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will not leave the club anytime soon.

Klopp was appointed the Liverpool manager in October 2015 and has done a wonderful job at Anfield so far.

The German guided the Reds to the final of the Europa League during the 2015-16 campaign.

The Merseyside outfit have established themselves as genuine contenders for the Premier League title this season.

According to a recent report in The Mirror, Bayern Munich are interested in appointing Klopp as their manager.

Liverpool legend Souness believes that the Reds have no reason to worry about the German’s future.

"I think he's fully bought into what Liverpool are about,” Souness told Sky Sports. “I genuinely believe that Liverpool are quite a unique football club, once you work for them, it's with you for the rest of your life.

"You quickly 'get' Liverpool. And I wouldn't think anytime soon that Jurgen Klopp would be leaving Liverpool.

"I think there's an obvious lure, if he was to go back to Germany, there's Bayern Munich and then there's a long way down before you get to his old team Dortmund.

"What other league in the world can the number one club go back to the number two club at the end of each season and take its best players? That only happens with Bayern Munich.

“They are so far ahead of everybody else out there, so there would be that obvious attraction. But I don't see him leaving Liverpool until he's fulfilled their potential.”

Klopp has been successful in Germany, winning the Bundesliga twice with Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern are a massive club and have one of the best squads in entire Europe.

It would certainly be tempting for Klopp to return to Germany and take charge of Bayern, but it is hard to see him leave Liverpool in the middle of the season.

Liverpool are second in the Premier League table at the moment with 30 points from 13 matches, just a point behind leaders Chelsea.
