Jurgen Klopp is set for first job since leaving Liverpool and things are moving fast

Jurgen Klopp is being targeted for his first coaching job since leaving Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp is reportedly being eyed for his first job since leaving Liverpool.

In May, Klopp ended his nine-year spell as manager of the Reds by taking charge of his final match against Wolves at Anfield.

The 57-year-old said an emotional goodbye and cleaned up his office in the AXA training center in preparation for the arrival of Arne Slot.

Klopp has since returned to Anfield for a job with Taylor Swift, but it is understood he has taken an extended break from management as he “has run out of energy”.

However, new reports suggest that Klopp is a leading candidate for an international stint.

The independent consultation The United States wants to hire Klopp as their new boss.

The USMNT has just parted ways with Gregg Berhalter after a disappointing Copa America tournament on home soil.

They were eliminated in the group stage after finishing third in Group C, which included Uruguay and Panama.

The poor performance cost Berhalter his job and he was removed from office on July 10, having returned to his post just over a year earlier.

But Klopp, who won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup with Liverpool, is seen as the ideal candidate to replace him at the helm and initial contacts have been made, according to Miguel Delaney’s report.

And international management would suit Klopp better, as it is not really an everyday job and offers more flexibility.

“I want to thank Gregg for his hard work and dedication to U.S. Soccer and our men’s national team,” U.S. Soccer President Cindy Parlow Cone said of Berhalter’s departure.

“We are now focused on working with our Sporting Director Matt Crocker and leveraging his experience at the highest level of the sport to ensure we find the right person to lead the USMNT into a new era of on-field success.”
