‘Ooof, wow’: Andy Townsend reacts to what he hears about a Liverpool man earning £302,000 a week

Andy Townsend says he “can’t imagine” Jurgen Klopp leaving Liverpool to become Germany’s next coach after Hansi Flick’s sacking.

Less than 12 months before Germany hosts the 2024 European Championship, the troubled country has decided to part ways with HansI Flick.

It comes as no surprise to anyone that Jürgen Klopp’s name is at the center of the discussion about who will be Germany’s next coach.

But former Aston Villa captain Townsend says Liverpool’s man in the dugout will take on that role “down the line” but that won’t happen as quickly as he said talkSPORT Breakfast (09/12/23 at 6:55 a.m.).

Liverpool fans have just come through a summer in which one of their key players, Mohamed Salah, was heavily linked with a move to Saudi Arabia – there were rumors the owners wanted him gone.

And now they could experience the same thing with Klopp, with Townsend sharing his thoughts.

Will Klopp be Germany’s next coach?

“I can’t imagine him leaving Liverpool either,” said Townsend. “I don’t think he’ll leave anytime soon.

“But I see Jürgen Klopp as an international team manager across the board. But I don’t think it will happen at the moment.

Townsend added later in the show that Klopp was Germany’s number one target: “Wow, ooof. I do not believe that. I can’t see that.”
