German media think they know where Jurgen Klopp is heading after Liverpool exit

Jurgen Klopp's choice to leave Liverpool has certainly not gone unnoticed in his home country.

Reports in Germany have been debating just what the future holds for the 56-year-old after nearly a decade spent on Merseyside managing the Reds.

One thing that appears certain is Klopp taking a lengthy break from the game, at least for a year, if his comments from his Friday press conference are anything to go by.

Debating whether Klopp could make a return to management further down the line, the German media have offered their thoughts on the situation.

Matthias Brugelmann of BILD wrote: "Almost every fan in the world would like to have this coach, this guy, this Klopp for their team. What an ambassador, what a face of our country!

"Will we see him again in Germany? I do believe that the 56-year-old will one day become a national or Bayern coach. With the 2026 World Cup in the USA, Canada & Mexico, the 2028 European Championship in Great Britain & Ireland and the 2030 World Cup in Spain, Portugal & Morocco, there are three tournaments in football-crazy countries. That should appeal to him before Saudi Arabia and China threaten.

"There was regular contact between Bayern and Klopp, but the timing was always bad. Tuchel's contract term until 2025 fits worryingly well with his planned break. Hoeneß would be able to relax if he wins Klopp for Bayern.

Jörg Jakob of Kicker wrote: "When Jürgen Klopp says today that this is no longer sufficient, then the difficult hours in Paris [2022 Champions League final] were the beginning of the end. The announcement that Klopp and Liverpool's love story will end in the summer came as a surprise - but it is understandable.

"Because Klopp has not only been playing highly intense football since October 2015, he has also been the shaper and face of success in the most demanding and fast-paced league on the planet since his introduction at Anfield Road, as the team manager of a Premier League club required more levels than a head coach in the Bundesliga.

"On the day of the farewell news, the current squad is still well represented in four competitions despite a large number of injuries - and is therefore already better than many observers expected before the round. Things can get really good again in the coming months.
