Latest Liverpool news: Liverpool fans laugh off Beckenbauer’s hopes of Klopp joining Bayern Munich
German legend Franz Beckenbauer would love to see Jurgen Klopp take over at Bayern Munich.
The Liverpool managed scripted an incredible 3-1 win over the Bavarians in the Champions League and knocked them out of the competition.
Bayern have struggled in the European stage in recent seasons, and the German legend was open to seeing Klopp lead the Bavarians.
“Jurgen Klopp at Bayern. That would be the highlight. Jurgen was the one who taught the Germans how to play football quickly.”
The Mirror adds that the Bavarians are contemplating replacing Niko Kovac with a bigger name, however, many Liverpool fans simply laughed off the suggestion of Klopp joining them.
Klopp and Bayern have history
Klopp enjoyed taking Bayern down during his Borussia Dortmund days. The German won two Bundesliga titles ahead of the bigger team with his Dortmund side.
The Liverpool manager also loved his team’s performance on Wednesday and celebrated after every goal.
The German also has a long-term deal at the Reds, and it isn’t like him to ditch a team before he reaches the limit with a side.
The manager only left Mainz and Dortmund once he knew there wasn’t more he could achieve with them.
The German is yet to win a title with the Reds and some fans were certain Klopp was not leaving for the Bavarians.

It’s no surprise mate , if you read his biography it is well documented Bayern came for Klopp twice – once before he went to Dortmund and once after he left Dortmund.

Why would he leave a good position at Liverpool for Bayern right now? He can get paid as much or way more in LFC plus expectations here to win are less than Bayern. Getting top 4 continuously at LFC makes FSG happy. At Bayern you have to get near CL or be seen as mediocre.

Never say never but brain washed ex Bayern players thinking Bayern are the national team. They are not. Klopp leading Bayern out vs Dortmund? There’s no domestic team after Liverpool except German National Team.
