The Liverpool manager has been heavily linked with the Die Mannschaft job, which is set to open up in the summer after Euro 2020.

Jurgen Klopp has dismissed the possibility of becoming the next Germany manager, saying he intends to honor the full length of his Liverpool contract.

Klopp’s position at Liverpool has come under intense scrutiny lately amid the team’s recent slip in standards.

The Premier League champions’ hope of a successful title defense is a distant dream as they lie eighth in the standings, 22 points off the pace.

They have suffered defeats in each of their last six league games at Anfield, and their manager’s future is being called into question.

Klopp, who has a contract until 2024, however, is committed to Liverpool.

“If that’s the question you want to ask, if I’m available for the job: no,” he replied when asked about succeeding Joachim Low as the Germany boss, via Goal.

“Jogi Low did an incredible job for so many years. One of the most successful. I understand he wants to have this highlight of a Euros. And then someone else will do a job. Lots of good German managers.”

“No, I will not be available as a potential coach of the German national team in the summer or after the summer.

“I have three years left at Liverpool. It’s a simple situation; you sign a contract and you try to stick to that.”
