Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he rejected “a few” approaches from the Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in order to remain at Anfield.

The German tactician has spent the past six-and-a-half years in charge of the English outfit and has overseen an outstanding period of success during that time.

Since lifting his first trophy with the Reds in the form of the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League, the former Borussia Dortmund head coach has gone on to add the Premier League, FIFA Club World Cup, EFL Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Super Cup to his CV.

The Merseysiders are still chasing history in the 2021-22 term, seeking an unparalleled quadruple of titles.

Jurgen had initially outlined his future plans to take a sabbatical when his current contract expired in June 2024, but he penned an extension until 2026 in April.

The 54-year-old’s fresh deal would take him to over a decade of service at Liverpool, but he hasn’t been without temptation from foreign clubs.


Klopp recently revealed that he had been approached by Die Roten on a number of occasions but snubbed the chance to join them.

“I could have gone to Bayern a few times, I could have won more titles in my life, pretty sure I would say — I didn’t do it. I had a contract here and I never went to Bayern,” he told reporters.

“That’s completely fine. The world is not full of winners, the world is full of triers hopefully. And I try and sometimes I win with some other people together. I am happy with that.”
