Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he would take over the German national team if he was offered the post.
Current coach Joachim Low has a contract that runs until the end of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, but his future after that tournament has yet to be settled.
Klopp's two consecutive Bundesliga titles have made him one of the early favourites to succeed Low, and he told Gala that it would be his dream to take control of die Nationalelf.
"At Dortmund I have the ultimate dream job. But, of course, for each player, the national team is a dream, and the same goes for a coach," he admitted.
"I've also said repeatedly that, should I be asked, I will not refuse."
Klopp's contract with Dortmund runs until the end of the 2016 season, but the board at Signal Iduna Park may have a difficult task on their hands to keep him until then if the talented 45-year-old is offered a role with the national side.
