Is Jurgen Klopp leaving Liverpool amid Germany issues as agent breaks silence

Since Germany’s shocking World Cup group stage defeat, Jurgen Klopp has been heavily linked to the position, and Hansi Flick is under significant pressure.

Jurgen Klopp’s agent Marc Kosicke has appeared to rule out the Liverpool manager succeeding Hansi Flick as Germany’s boss after they crashed out of the World Cup.

With only four points from their three games, the Germans finished third in Group F. Japan won the group with six points, and Spain took second place on goal differential. Flick’s teams won 4-2 against Costa Rica on Thursday, but it wasn’t enough as they once again exited the tournament in the group stages.

Flick is expected to have his position reviewed next week as Germany analyses what went wrong with their disappointing World Cup campaign. Flick has come in for increased criticism. After failing to advance past the group stage in 2018, the Germans were eliminated at this competition for the second time in a row.

Klopp has been since linked with the Germany job if Flick does lose his job, however, Kosicke has seemed to shut those rumours down by claiming the 55-year-old ‘intends to fulfill’ his Liverpool contract.

Klopp signed a new two-year deal back in April, which will take him until the end of the 2025/26 campaign – his 11th season at the club.

“This is a media topic,” Kosicke told Sky Germany. “Jurgen has a contract until 2026 and he intends to fulfil it.”

The brief statement follows Kosicke’s last month’s affirmation of Klopp’s commitment to the long-term mission at Liverpool. Just six of the Reds’ first 14 Premier League games have ended in victories, and Klopp is eager to turn around the team’s fortunes when the season resumes at the end of the month.

Speaking in early November, Klopp’s agent said: “I can assure [you] that Jurgen Klopp has no intention of resigning from Liverpool FC. The fact that problems could arise this season due to the past intensive season was taken into account by the club’s owners before the start of the season.

“Jurgen enjoys the backing of the people in charge and is in regular contact with them. He loves the club, his team, and the fans and is determined to continue and successfully complete the transition in Liverpool. He didn’t extend his contract until 2026 for nothing.”

Klopp joined the Reds in 2015 to replace the outgoing Brendan Rodgers and went ahead to win the Champions League after defeating Tottenham Hotspurs Liverpool would finally lift the Premier League for the first time in 30 years in 19/20 – storming to the title with ease.

Liverpool began proceedings in the second-half with far more aggression and intent and actually came close to finding an effort via unlikely scorer Ibrahima Konate.

The Frenchman raced into the opposing half in a manner some might suggest was Joel Matip-esque before attempting to catch Kepa Arrizabalaga off his line with a speculative effort.

The shot went just wide of the post in what was a clear warning sign for Graham Potter’s men.

The Liverpool confirms midfield transfer as Jürgen Klopp explains plan and Diogo Jota injury update

Liverpool have confirmed a January transfer move while Jürgen Klopp has been speaking about his summer plan and offered a Diogo Jota injury update.

Jürgen Klopp has told his team that the Reds would be making significant changes amid a transfer overhaul, but that won’t happen until the summer when several of his players’ contracts expire.

“At Borussia Dortmund, it was clear when I left (in 2015), I said something has to change,” Klopp said in the second part of his press conference. “It is a different situation (here). Either the manager’s position changes or a lot of other things change.

“So, as far as I am concerned, what I hear — unless someone tells me (different) — I will not go. So that means maybe there is a point where we have to change other stuff.

“We will see but that is for the future, like summer or whatever. Not now. I have space and time to think about it.

“We have to play better football now. We cannot play and say: ‘OK, these are the problems but next season we don’t have them anymore’. That is a really long time. I cannot promise we will fly tomorrow but what I want to promise is that we really fight and everyone can see it.”

But if they manage to finish in the top four this season, it will be much easier to make such changes. Without Champions League football for a season, it will be considerably more difficult to sign Jude Bellingham and other major targets.

Jürgen Klopp has offered an update on Diogo Jota’s fitness as he continues his recovery from the long-term injury that has already forced him to miss the World Cup.

“I don’t know exactly how long but he looks really good,” Klopp said in the second part of his press conference. “He’s out there on the pitch doing a lot of stuff already. Another few weeks?”

When asked if Jota would be available for the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal matchup against Real Madrid next month, Klopp said: “From my point of view, yes but I don’t know.”

Colombian winger Luis Díaz is also on the recovery trail. He posted an update from the AXA Training Centre on social media yesterday.

At the AMEX Stadium on Saturday night, two goals in the second half from Solly March and another from substitute Danny Welbeck condemned Liverpool to a 3-0 Premier League loss.

In response, Klopp expressed his deep concern by evaluating the reverse without comparison over the course of his 22 years as manager.

“It’s my job to make the right line-up and set up the right tactics,” said the Reds boss. “I had really nice moments doing that but, I’m not sure if it’s because it’s only a few minutes since the game, but I can’t remember a worse game.

Klopp has already conceded the Gakpo deal limits what the club can do in the remainder of the window – but there is still plenty of time for them to spring a surprise.

Gvardiol decides future

Josko Gvardiol, a defender for RB Leipzig, has expressed his love for Liverpool amid recent transfer rumors, but he has also said he will stay with his current team until at least 2024, quelling any rumors that he might be moving to Merseyside.

The Dutch attacker displayed the back of his shirt to reveal: “Gakpo 18,” which was a wonderful way for the club to announce his selection as he passed past our awards that are on display in the AXA Training Centre.

The 23-year-old joins Takumi Minamino, Alberto Moreno, Dirk Kuyt, Antonio Nunez, John Arne Riise, Erik Meijer, Jean-Michel Ferri, Michael Owen, Phil Charnock, and Ronny Rosenthal as the 11th player to wear the number since the Premier League’s inception.

The former PSV player wore the same jersey number for the Under-21 team at his old team and twice for his country; now, at Anfield, the legacy of his relationship with the number will continue to flourish.
