Jurgen Klopp says he would have doubts about becoming Germany manager, but would think about it in the future if approached.
The Daily Mirror says the Liverpool boss “has been mooted as a top target for the German FA to replace Joachim Low” after the Qatar World Cup.
Low’s current deal with the DFB expires in 2022 and that will coincide with Klopp’s deal at Anfield ending.
Klopp has always maintained that he will see out the three remaining years at Anfield, but Liverpool officials are believed to be keen to tie the German down to a longer deal.
In the summer The Times reported that Liverpool were keen to see Klopp extend his stay beyond 2022, but Klopp said he was unfazed about a committing to a new deal.
“I will not leave before the contract is ending. That is my side. That is why a contract is important,” he told a press conference.
The 52-year-old has even suggested he may well look at taking a sabbatical when he eventually does leave Merseyside, but the former Borussia Dortmund boss’ stock has risen so high that calls for him to replace Low are inevitable.
Asked about the possibility, Klopp told Magenta TV: “I really can not say. I do not know if I would like to.
“Now, as of today, I do not feel like it. Stand up now, I’m totally happy with what I do and that’s important in the whole story.
“I also could not say one hundred percent if I was the right one [to replace Low].
“If the question ever arises, I would think about it – but not now.”
