Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will not be replacing Hansi Flick as Germany head coach, according to Sky Sport Deutschland reporter Florian Plettenberg.
The journalist claims that Klopp would not be willing to take up a dual role of managing both club and country.
Needless to say Reds fans on X are delighted that their manager will not be leaving Anfield or taking up another managerial position on a part-time basis:
Thank god 👑

Klopp wants to see out his rebuild at Liverpool
When the 56-year-old signed a new contract extending his stay on Merseyside until 2026, the plan was for him to rebuild the squad that had been so successful, winning 7 major trophies over the last eight years.
It is believed that Klopp wants to see the job through, so any offers from other clubs or countries before the end of the 2025/26 season are not expected to be considered.
Germany have now identified their main candidate to replace Flick
Former RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann is said to be the frontrunner to take on the task of managing the Euro 2024 hosts.
Other names, such as Louis van Gaal, Matthias Sammer and Oliver Glasner have also been mentioned as potential options, in addition to Klopp, but it appears that talks with Nagelsmann will now take place for him to succeed Flick.
