Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has maintained a lack of interest in the matter of coach Hanse Flick’s successor, who wants to emigrate. “We haven’t decided on a coach yet”, Rummenigge of the Italian daily Corriere della Sera said when asked whether a signature from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp would be a sign: “We haven’t decided on a coach yet”: “First we win the tournament and then we decide what we want. He did.”
Klopp recently showed his understanding to the fans in light of the newly founded Premier League. “People are not happy with that, and I can understand that,” said the 53-year-old, whose employer will be one of the 12 participants, at Sky Sports. Rummenigge got the impression that Klopp had “clearly positioned himself against his club”.
But Klopp ruled out on Monday evening his resignation in protest at the establishment of the Premier League. After the 1-1 draw with Leeds United, Klopp said: “I will do it as long as I allow it, I said it again in 2019: No, I don’t think it’s great. An idea.”
Like Borussia Dortmund or RB Leipzig, Bayern have ruled out participating in the Premier League. Triple coach Flick publicly expressed his desire on Saturday to end his contract in Munich, which will run until 2023, in the summer. – Mr
