January 4 News In an interview with the German media "Sports Bild" a few days ago, Liverpool
Manager Jurgen Klopp spoke of their ongoing Champions League campaign for the remainder of the fixture list, the possibility of him taking over as Germany manager and his responsibilities at Liverpool.
Liverpool is currently ranked sixth in the Premier League standings, when asked if the team can achieve any goals in the league this season, Klopp said: "Of course it is extremely important for us to enter the Champions League.
It’s been incredibly difficult. People are kind of spoiled because we’ve tended to do it early over the past few years."
"If we do it this year, then it will be a late result. It may be some time before we catch up. But we all know what we have to do."
And when asked if Germany boss Klopp would be there at some point, the 55-year-old said: "It’s a bit of an odd situation, on the one hand it’s great but on the other hand it’s a bit of a problem.
It’s very difficult. I don’t want to give the impression that it’s the last job I want to do. There are worse things in the world than being called a possible national team manager."
"But anyway, it’s better than someone saying ‘everyone can do it, but this one can’t’. But I’m a very responsible person. And I have a responsibility at Liverpool, I can’t just because of this
If something appeals to me, I simply say: I’m getting out of here now."
"I wouldn’t do it. I haven’t done it so far. I’ve always said it before: I’m going to be the manager of the national team at some point, it’s not completely out of the question. But everything has to be right.
"But it’s not so far. I still have a contract here. If I end my contract at Liverpool, I will definitely not do anything for the next year. As for what happens after that, we will see.
