Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been backed to quit Anfield and take charge of the German national team by his former Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic. Klopp led the Reds to their maiden Premier League title with seven games still to go.
Klopp finally ended Liverpool’s 30-year wait for a top-flight title which sparked wild celebrations on Merseyside.
The German boss is tied down for another four years after penning a contract extension in December.
However Subotic, who played under Klopp at Dortmund, thinks the 53-year-old needs to win the World Cup with his native Germany to have a complete career.
“Jurgen Klopp should become national coach at some point, absolutely – and then win the World Cup with Germany,” Subotic told CHECK24.
“As far as success is concerned, there is definitely nothing left, not even for Kloppo.”
Union Berlin centre-back Subotic continued to explain why Klopp has been so successful throughout his managerial career.
“Through Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool also invited new people to get excited about football. And that is also a feat,” he said.
“There is a lot of hope in this idea, which Jurgen Klopp lives with his team and which goes beyond European sports culture.”
After beating Manchester City to the title, Klopp spoke about how he feels Pep Guardiola is still the best manager in the world.
