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.
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 t-online.de. "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.
