Liverpool boss Klopp admits rejecting Bayern Munich a few times

Klopp doesn’t believe he would be better served managing elsewhere.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits he’s resisted several attempts from Bayern Munich to return to Germany.

Klopp joined Liverpool in October 2015, and recently, he signed a new contract that extends his commitment to the club to 2026.

The German manager doesn’t believe he would be better served managing elsewhere, and confirmed he has been approached on more than one occasion by Bayern during his time at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp said: “Which club should I go to to have a different situation? Tell me. The only thing I could do is ask Pep (Guardiola) if he is sick of all that winning and I take over at (Manchester) City. Is that the idea? That wouldn’t work, I don’t want to do it.

“I could have gone to Bayern a few times, I could have won more titles in my life, pretty sure I would say – a good chance at least. I didn’t do it. I had a contract here and I never did it. That’s completely fine.

“The world is not full of winners, the world is full of triers hopefully. And I try and sometimes I win with some other people together. I am happy with that. I am not always positive, give me a second and I will find a reason for optimism, that’s probably true, but that’s it.”

Klopp also added: “This club went through incredibly tough periods and always hit back and if people can’t appreciate the time we are in or the team they have I would really feel for them because it’s fantastic what the boys do.

“If you saw the Aston Villa game (on Tuesday), the situation we are in, you could write books about the resilience of these boys. 1-0 down, everything looks like ‘Ah, this time’. But no. We are three points away (from City at the top of the Premier League) and seven goals. We will try. We cannot do more and I can enjoy that – if people can’t I cannot change that.”
