Klopp’s future at Liverpool has been called into question in light of the team’s dismal 2020-21. The Premier League champions will end the season trophyless and even risk missing out on Champions League football next season.

He recently expressed his disapproval of the European Super League which further put his future in doubt, give his side are among the 12 founding members of the new competition.

The German manager’s name, as a result, is being thrown around as a potential candidate for the Bayern Munich job, with Hansi Flick have made his intentions known of parting ways with the club at the end of the season.

Rummenigge told Corriere della Sera: “We have not yet decided on the coach, first we win the championship and then we decide what to do. 

“Of course he spoke heavily against his company.”

Julian Nagelsmann, who is also linked with Tottenham, is also considered a favorite to replace Flick.
