Ottmar Hitzfeld expects Jurgen Klopp to manage Bayern Munich

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp "is a fantastic advertisement for German coaches" and would be ideally suited for Bayern Munich, according to Ottmar Hitzfeld.

Former Bayern Munich boss Ottmar Hitzfeld has said that it is just a matter of time before Jurgen Klopp takes up a coaching position at the Allianz Arena.

Klopp has spent the past 21 months at Liverpool, guiding the Reds to a more-than-respectable top-four finish in his first full campaign in charge last time out.

Legendary manager Hitzfeld expects to see ex-Borussia Dortmund chief Klopp make the switch to Bavaria in the coming years, but only after first ending Liverpool's long wait for a 19th top-flight title.

"Jurgen Klopp is one of the top coaches," he told "He will be an English champion sooner or later, of that I am firmly convinced. He is building something with Liverpool.

"He is a motivator and is a fantastic advertisement for German coaches. To get appointed in England is not easy – he did it. Jurgen Klopp always belongs among the candidates at Bayern.

"He knows the Bundesliga, he became German champion and won the trophy. I think and I expect him to be the coach of Bayern."

Klopp is under contract at Anfield until 2022 and has previously suggested that this will be his last managerial role.
