Germany Klopp interest remains, Bowen doubt & fitness updates – Latest LFC News

Your final Liverpool news overview of the week brings a certain managerial position that won’t go away and all of the West Ham build-up ahead of Sunday.


Klopp still a “top candidate” for Germany

The German FA still consider Jurgen Klopp a “top candidate” for the national team role, with new boss Julian Nagelsmann having only been handed a short-term role.

As is often the case when the Germany managerial job becomes vacant, Klopp’s name was linked to the position following the sacking of Hansi Flick earlier this month.

Nagelsmann was appointed to replace Flick having himself been sacked by Bayern Munich earlier this year, but his new deal only lasts until next summer.

Despite having found a replacement, BBC Sport‘s Constantin Eckner believes there is still optimism that Germany can tempt Klopp into taking over the role in the near future.

Klopp’s contract at Anfield runs until the summer of 2026 and, frankly, we’re not interested in hearing any speculation to the contrary!
