There's nothing there - Klopp agent rejects Bayern link

The Liverpool manager will not be returning to the Bundesliga with the Bavarian giants, according to his advisor

Jurgen Klopp's agent has dismissed reports the Liverpool manager could take charge of Bayern Munich next season.

Veteran coach Jupp Heynckes has led an impressive revival for the Bundesliga champions since Carlo Ancelotti's sacking in September but a long-term appointment remains on the agenda for 2018-19 and beyond at the Allianz Arena.

Klopp was a thorn in the side of Bayern during his celebrated tenure at Borussia Dortmund, winning back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2010-11 and 2011-12.

He completed the domestic double by hoisting the DFL-Pokal in the latter season.

From around that time, Bayern have regularly poached top playing talent from Dortmund but Klopp's representative Marc Kosicke insists BVB fans need not worry about another of their heroes taking up residence in Bavaria.

"There is nothing there," he replied when asked by Sport1 whether rumours linking Klopp to Bayern had any weight behind them.

Another ex-Dortmund boss, Thomas Tuchel, has also been touted for the Bayern role along with long-time national team chief Joachim Low and highly rated Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann - another Kosicke client.

Klopp is into his third year at Liverpool and just shattered the club's transfer record by bringing in centre-back Virgil van Dijk from Southampton.

The 50-year-old has four-and-a-half years remaining on his Anfield deal.
