Jurgen Klopp’s agent insists Liverpool boss is NOT eyeing the Germany job amid calls for him to replace under-fire Hansi Flick
Jurgen Klopp’s agent has reiterated the Liverpool boss’ commitment to the Premier League amid calls for him to replace under-fire Germany manager Hansi Flick.
The Germans suffered their latest humbling defeat on Tuesday, a 2-0 home loss to Colombia, which took their dismal run of form to three wins in 11 games.
Flick, who took over from Joachim Low in 2021, is now facing the axe as their run of form comes after failing to progress from the group stages at the 2022 World Cup and the mounting pressure to win next summer’s Euros – set to be hosted in the country.
But despite Liverpool’s disappointing campaign last term, Klopp’s agent Marc Kosicke has moved quickly to quash any chance of a sensational move.

‘Jürgen has a long-term contract with the LFC.’ Kosicke told Bild. ‘And the DFB has a national coach. So it’s not an issue for us at all.’
The German has three years remaining on the extension he signed with the Anfield club in April 2022.
Liverpool’s poor 2022-23 campaign, that saw them miss out on the Champions League, has sparked a major rebuild with several reinforcements expected in this transfer window.
The Reds moved quickly to swoop for Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister and have been heavily linked with deals for Nice’s Khephren Thuram and Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Manu Kone.
While club legend Roberto Firmino led the raft of names out the door that included James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita.
Following Germany’s defeat on Tuesday, Bild called on the German FA to ‘fight for [Klopp] with all its might’ but it now appears the national team will have to wait until 2026 at the earliest to make a move for the former Borussia Dortmund manager.
