Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, has disclosed that he had the option to join Bayern Munich while at Anfield. After considerable success at Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga rivals, Borussia Dortmund, the German manager joined the Reds in 2015.
From 2010 to 2012, Klopp led Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga victories, breaking Bayern Munich’s stronghold on the league. In 2013, he led BvB to the UEFA Champions League final, but they were defeated 2-1 by the Bavarians.
He has claimed that he has had head coaching offers from the Bundesliga champions. Klopp was discussing which club he might join if he ever leaves Liverpool.
“The only thing I could do is ask Pep [Guardiola] if he is tired of winning, and then I would take over at [Manchester] City. Is this the plan? That would be impossible. I’m not interested in doing it. He added: “I could have visited Bayern several times. In my life, I could have earned more awards.
At the very least, I believe I have a good shot. It was not my fault. I had a deal here that I never followed through on. There aren’t many winners in the world. The globe, hopefully, is filled with travelers. I try and sometimes succeed with the help of others. That makes me pleased. “
Jurgen Klopp led Liverpool to victory in the UEFA Champions League in 2019. He subsequently led Liverpool to their first Premier League title in 2020, and his team is aiming for an unprecedented quadruple this season.
Klopp’s team has already won the Carabao Cup, defeating Chelsea on penalties in the final in February. On May 14, they will face the Blues in the FA Cup final for the second time.
Klopp will end the season by leading Liverpool to the Champions League final, where they will face Real Madrid on May 28. They will be looking to avenge a 3-1 loss to Los Blancos in the 2018 Champions League final. Liverpool has had an incredible season under Klopp, and a quadruple may be the perfect way to cap it off.
