REPORT: Odds Slashed For Liverpool Manager To Take Germany International Job

Irish bookmakers Paddy Power have recently cut their odds for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to take the vacant Germany manager job after Die Mannschaft sacked now-former head coach Hansi Flick.

Flick was removed from his post after a humiliating 4-1 defeat against Japan – the German FA will now seek out a new manager, with Klopp firmly in the discussion.

A spokesperson for Paddy Power, Rachael Kane, said: “Liverpool fans will be waiting with bated breath over Klopp’s future, but a joint managerial venture could offer the best of both worlds.

“With the Saudi Arabian transfer window closing last week, Liverpool fans felt they could finally sleep easy, however with Flick’s recent sacking, there may be a few nervous weeks ahead for the red side of Merseyside.”

What are the odds on Jurgen Klopp taking the Germany manager job?

Klopp was previously rated at 20/1 by Paddy Power to take the Germany job – in the wake of Flick’s sacking, these odds have now plummeted to 10/1.

In addition to this, Klopp also has odds of 30/1 to be joint manager of both Liverpool and Germany before the start of Euro 2024.

According to BettingOdds, former Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann is the favourite to land the job with odds of 6/5. Following him in the list are Oliver Glasner at 4/1 and Rudi Voller at 6/1, with Klopp landing in 4th place.

How would it affect Liverpool if Klopp left the club?

Losing Jurgen Klopp would be a hammer blow for Liverpool – not only has his tactical style revolutionised the club (even down to a cultural level), he is also an incredibly popular figure within the fanbase.

For years, Liverpool were mocked by Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea fans alike for having never won the Premier League – in 2020, Klopp silenced them all after he won England’s top division and finished with 99 points on the board.

On top of this, the year previous, he also won the Champions League with Liverpool. He has been one of the best Liverpool managers of all time – as such, the Reds’ hierarchy would be best served by doing everything they can to ensure that he remains in Merseyside.
