Germany Legend Links Klopp With Die Mannschaft Job

Liverpool could be sweating on the long-term future of their manager after Germany's humiliation in the UEFA Nations League on Tuesday night.

With Die Mannschaft having been thrashed 6-0 by Spain – their heaviest-ever competitive defeat – a German legend has believes only one candidate would be suitable to replace Joachim Low.

Talking about potential successors to Low prior to the defeat, Lothar Matthaus insisted that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is the only person to take Germany forward.

"When you talk about possible candidates, there is only one person that everyone would want in the future, and that is Jurgen Klopp," he told Sky Sport Germany.

"He is extremely successful, personable and equally popular with fans and the media."

Pressure will mount on Low following the hefty defeat, and it is claimed that there could be calls for the coach to be replaced prior to the start of the next European Championship, which will take place next year.

However, Matthaus also admitted that, with recent success at Anfield, and his contract still in place until 2024, it is unlikely that Klopp's arrival in the Germany hot seat would be soon.

"He's far from finished in Liverpool and he'll have time for the national team in a few years."
