Current Germany boss Joachim Low’s contract currently expires after the 2022 World Cup, which happens to coincide with when the Reds boss’ deal also runs out. 

However, while speaking to Magenta TV (​via Liverpool Echo), Klopp said that he is not thinking about departing Anfield any time soon. 

When asked if a role with the national team would interest him, the Liverpool manager said: “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.”

Liverpool will be desperate to keep hold of the German as he continues to perform extremely well at the club.  

The Reds’ recent 2-1 victory over ​Leicester leaves them just one win away from equalling Manchester City’s record ​Premier League winning streak of 18 games. They are also an incredible eight points clear at the top of the table already.

Only ​Napoli have defeated Liverpool so far this campaign, beating them 2-0 in the ​Champions League in September.

Due to this scintillating form, Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has made no secret of the club’s desire to extend the German’s contract past 2022.

Speaking to the ​Echo prior to the Champions League final, Werner said: “I think you know that we think the world of him. We have already extended his contract once.

“All I can say is that it’s obviously important that he stays for as long as he likes. We believe that he’s committed to Liverpool.”
