Former Liverpool star tips Jurgen Klopp for Bayern Munich switch if Reds’ current struggles continue
Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp tips Jurgen Klopp to complete Bayern Munich switch if Reds’ current struggles continue
- Liverpool in a cold night at Anfield and deserved to come out of the game as 4 – 1 winners
- Liverpool’s title hopes are in tatters and the Reds are now facing an uphill task to finish in the top four come end of May
- One former Reds star believes the German boss might be heading back to Bundesliga if Liverpool’s current struggles continue
Jurgen Klopp could head back to Bundesliga to manage Liverpool continue to fire blanks in the Premier League, per Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp.
The former Reds midfielder was speaking on air after seeing his ex-side getting torn apart by a resurgent Manchester City on Sunday evening.
Pep Guardiola’s side took the lead early on in the second half but soon found themselves back on level terms after Ruben Dias pulled back Mohamed Salah in City’s half to gift the Reds a penalty which the Egyptian duly converted.
That wasn’t enough to stop this juggernaut of a City side that pounced on two errors from Alisson Becker and one fine move to put the game away from the home side’s reach before the 4th official raised his board to signal injury time.
And Redknapp believes that the club’s poor performances in the Premier League, combined with their disjointed transfer policy that saw Liverpool waiting for the final day of January transfer window to bring in replacements for injured Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez could drive Klopp into Bayern’s hands.
Redknapp believes Klopp could go to Bayern Munich
He told Sky Sports: “I thought Jurgen’s words were really interesting. I sensed frustration with him because he wanted a new player.
“The problem was who could Liverpool buy to replace Virgil Van Dijk? You can’t spend £50-60 million on a player knowing that in April your best player is coming back from injury. It could cause more problems than it’s worth.
“I was surprised to hear what Jurgen said – and maybe in a couple of years he might want to leave to manage someone like Bayern Munich.
“That always seems to be the calling for a lot of German players and managers.
I think there was a sense of frustration with him, but once Liverpool get their best players back at the end of the season I am sure he will be fine.”
