Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s success at the Anfield has not gone unnoticed meaning it is inevitable that Barcelona and Real Madrid will hover over him.
Liverpool have taken the Premier League by storm this season by sealing the title with seven games left to play and are on track to collect the most points tally ever recorded in the English top-flight. The man who has been at the epicentre of the success achieved by Liverpool on and off the field is the German mastermind Jurgen Klopp and due to his tremendous achievements, Barcelona and Real Madrid continue keeping tabs on his future.
Real and Barca have been enduring a mixed campaign and both managers Zinedine Zidane and Quique Setien have been under constant pressure in La Liga as well as the Champions League where both sides have tricky second leg fixtures coming up.
If either manager is sacked from their current position then there is no doubt that Klopp’s name will be the first one on the lips of the media and links with the Spanish powerhouses will be there due to his success with Liverpool.
The German has turned Liverpool from a club finishing in mid-table ranges to a dominant force by winning the Premier League and the Champions League. There is a feeling that he has won and accomplished everything at Merseyside.
As reported by the Express, Neil Mellor the former Liverpool striker believes that Klopp still has the hunger to build his dynasty and extend the dominance of Liverpool in England for many years to come and has the power to reject Real Madrid and Barcelona should those clubs come calling.
Liverpool have put themselves into a position as one of the biggest clubs in the world and Klopp will be looking to add to the success he has had.
Liverpool fans can be confident about Klopp’s dedication towards the Reds although if there is a storm approaching it is in Joachim Low’s uncertain future as head coach of German national team. After a disastrous group stage exit at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Nations League relegation and most recently the humbling defeat to the resurgent Holland in Hamburg there is a feeling that the Euro 2021 will be the last chance for Low to prove his worth with the German National team.
Klopp’s name has been linked with the German National team job after the 2018 FIFA World Cup and surely there is a chance that his head might be tempted at the offer of coaching his own national team.
The key difference between club and international management is the level of involvement.
With the club a manager is deeply involved in the culture, the traditions, relationships with the players and the fans and their role is more apparent which is what Klopp has been known for right from his management days at Dortmund, whereas a national team’s head coach is more of a concealed figure which revolves around borrowing players working with them for a couple of months and major tournaments; which is not the nature the former Mainz gaffer has been used to since the start of his managerial career.
Jurgen Klopp seems to be fully focused on his goal of creating his dynasty at the Anfield and as of yet there are no boilers to light and the questions about the much-speculated German national team head coach position will be a problem to ponder if and when the situation arises.
Do you think the German will have a long managerial career at Liverpool?
