The Mannschaft manager has come under extreme pressure after his side’s early exit from the World Cup.

Jurgen Klopp’s agent has dismissed reports about his client’s possible move to Germany as Hansi Flick’s replacement.

Germany crashed out of the World Cup after winning their last group-stage game against Costa Rica on Thursday.

Japan’s shocking win over Spain was enough to prevent the Germans from reaching the knockout stage for the second time in a row.

Pressure has started to mount on Flick’s shoulder ever since the surprise defeat against Japan in Germany’s World Cup opener.

A few former internationals, including Michael Ballack and Dietmar Hamman, have gone as far as to suggest Flick should leave after the World Cup.

Flick’s uncertain future has led to rumours around Jurgen Klopp’s possible appointment as the new Germany boss. But his agent says the German manager will respect his current deal at Anfield.

“This is a media topic,” Marc Kosicke told Sky Sports.

“Jurgen has a contract at Liverpool until 2026 and he intends to fulfil it.”

Flick signed a three-year deal to become Germany’s manager after Joachim Low’s departure last year. Let’s see if the former Bayern Munich coach will continue his job until the 2024 Euros.
