Former Liverpool player Steve McManaman “exclusively told Daily Star Sport” that he can envision Jürgen Klopp leaving Liverpool for Bayern Munich. “I think he really adores Liverpool and the Premier League,” McManaman said, “But you could see him going back to Germany and managing Bayern Munich.”

McManaman elaborated on why Bayern might prove enticing to the affable coach:

“The way that club is run — and the way German managers are treated there — you wouldn’t rule it out,” he said. “A few years ago it looked like Bayern were on their last legs. [editorial note: say what?!] But now, along with the more experienced players, they’ve got a plethora of youngsters who are hungry.”
