No worries mate.
Bayern is not the type of club for Klopp. They had the chance to sign him once and they bottled it, signing the "wrong Jürgen" with Jürgen Klinsmann. Managing a club like Bayern is no project nor a challenge for him. Everyone expects you to win every game. If you win the double, all that people talk about is how you lost this one champions league match that ruined the season.

I know it will be difficult to understand from a distance what kind of club Mainz is. Understanding how special Dortmund is in terms of passion for football, unity of fans and team etc. might be easier. And if you now look at what he found in Liverpool it is easy to see which club doesn't fit in if you add Bayern to the list.

I told it right from the start that Liverpool fits Klopp like a glove and vice versa. I knew it would be only a matter of time until he brings Liverpool back to the top if given the time. His success as a manager feeds from the unity between management, staff, the team and the fans. Once that is achieved the rest is the logical outcome. I can't name a single other team in Europe that demonstrates unity better than Liverpool at this very moment. And I am saying this as a Dortmund supporter. I know how it feels because we have been there as well. Enjoy every single moment you have with him as your manager. I am sure he will stay for many more years before he eventually manages the the German national team.

There was never a better time to be a Dortmund fan than when Klopp was in. I celebrated the title with all of you as if Dortmund had won it this weekend. Not only because I love Klopp as a manager and human being, but because Liverpool is just such a special club, a second love for me you could say. Hey, I even watched the parade live-stream for at least 3 hours because I didn't want to miss a thing.

I am more than excited to see what he can achieve with Liverpool in the coming years. After Dortmund missing out on the Bundesliga title and Liverpool missing out on the PL title this year it was clear that Liverpool had to win the Champions League this year if there was a football god. It finally worked out. And what a journey it was.

I am just wondering, why is it, since Jürgen has come to Liverpool, the Bayern people like Beckenbauer are always saying we want Klopp to come, they say this every year?

I just find Bayern Munich abit of an old fashioned and stuffy club to be honest. I see Jürgen as a free spirit, a bohemian personality, a man who can connect with the people. I think he would be constricted and fed up over there after a year.

For a long time, I kind of fell out love with Liverpool FC. Since Jürgen arrived, he has helped supporters to reconnect with Liverpool and love football again. I am so grateful to him. He gets the philosophy of this club, the city and the people. I hope he stays a good long time.

Rainer Calmund, Franz Beckenbauer - what's next, Sepp Herberger will be resurrected from the dead to give an interview about how Mo and VvD should definitely join Bayern next season?
Seriously, no need to pay any attention to this click bait shit.

I can't remember what the question was, but I do recall that in his post-final conference, Klopp made a passing (but, I think, important!) comment about how his interest in football remains at its core about "development".

I think that his time at Liverpool has forced him to really grapple with and evolve his understanding of what development means/requires-- maybe elevate it to the next level-- but that focus remains. I really can't see that philosophy jiving at Bayern.

The only worry for me is that klopp specified in the past that he needs to take a break to recharge his batteries. I hope whatever contract the club has planned for him allows him to do just that.

Take a year off in the middle if necessary , let the team be run by the assistant manager , and come back.

The club can't let jurgen go

The only job that could possibly take him away is the German national team, and I'm not even convinced of that. Limited opportunity to train and work with players. Seems more like his retirement job when he's too old to do it every day anymore. Like Wenger's age or a little less.

Quite a while from having to worry about that.

From the first Normal One press conference, everyone loves him. He is already a legend to me because his respect for the city, people club and fans is beyond what some previous managers could comprehend. He gets it, we love him. May he stay long and he will be immortalized one day when he finally steps down.

Jogi Löw's accident in weight training with a dumbbell landing on his chest means he hasn't been able to congratulate Jürgen yet. Although you wonder if that might not be the only reason.....

H e will for shure and he s i suppose using his time in Hospital to speak at least a couple of words in scousers dialect so Jurgen can understand himlol

I think the two Black Forest guys have a 'professional' relationship, without much need to spend a lot of time in each others' company. Probably a perfectly mutually acceptable arrangement.

Yeah... there were a recent article about him taking some time off from 2022. I think it would be great to offer him a contract that allowed him to do that. That type of gesture is what will keep him here for the rest of his career. :-)

My only worry is about the caretaker manager. If we leave it to Lijnders, would he be satisfied with going back to an assistant manager position afterwards??? I know it is selfish and perhaps Lijnders would like the step up.... but...

Who would be OK, knowing they have just a single season? Gerrard? Only person I can think of is... Kenny! Wouldn't mind one more season.

Has that been been done before? If that's what Jurgen wants then let him do it. I just hope he comes back. He's my favourite manager of all time. I love the team he's built.

If true that Klopp sees himself taking time out after his contract expires then I don't think we will let him leave without a plan.

My guess would be that Klopp would work with the directors and his current staff to identify the right man to take over - whether that be someone like Lijnders moving into the role or an outside person taking over the reigns.

I'm just so confident in how we are being ran right now that I even believe Klopp leaving (in a managed way with a set timeline) wouldn't be catastrophic.

I did think of posting a separate thread for an important question my mother just asked whilst watching the LFC parade videos, I haven't seen it reported anywhere yet.


How many beers did Klopp drink during the Parade?
Well, in Germany we would never count the beer tbf lol :cheers:. Seriously, why should it have been reported??? That's very strange imo.

Edit, he was very disappointed that nobody even thought about some beer after the final. He mentioned that he didn't even get a water and he had to order something for the dressing room. He is used to get a beer shower immediately afterwards. lol

Regional rivals sums it up best. By a freak of nature 5 years apart a thinly populated rural region throws up two trainer giants. My guess is that while at Dortmund in Klopp's mind, Löw was slow to show how much Klopp's players were improving in terms of his selection for the national team. Löw preferred the Bayern troop. In Klopp's eyes, not necessarily mine.

I surely hope so.... I don't even want to see that far ahead, but I do hope he extends for a few more years to 2025 would be ideal.

It’s hard to see a sabbatical or ‘gap year’ working.

Funnily enough I think finding someone to run the first team for a defined period ( guessing a year) would be the simpler bit, guessing king Kenny and linders if it was to happen tomorrow.....


The hardest thing for me to imagine being maintained is the motivation and momentum.

I just can’t see it being a feasible strategy, I might be wrong.
