Germany are on the hunt for a new manager after sacking Hansi Flick on Sunday. 

The 58-year-old was fired following his side’s 4-1 defeat against Japan in Wolfsburg on Saturday, leaving Germany without a head coach just nine months before they host Euro 2024.

Flick had been in charge since August 2021 when he replaced Joachim Low, but a series of poor results over the past year had put pressure on him and Saturday’s result was the final straw.

In total the former Bayern Munich boss won just 12 of his 25 games in charge of the national side, but a run of four defeats in five matches has ended his tenure.

Former Germany striker Rudi Voller will take temporary charge of Germany for their game against France on Tuesday, but it appears that those in charge are considering a Premier League boss as Flick’s successor.

According to 90min, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is being considered for the vacant managerial role.

The report claims that the DFB are so keen to hire Klopp that they would even be willing to let the former Mainz boss see out the remainder of the current campaign before taking charge of the national side just before the start of Euro 2024.

Typically German would be among the favourites to triumph in a home tournament, but their recent record and the recent sacking of Flick means otherwise.

The four-time World Cup winners have failed to progress from the group stage at each of the last two World Cups, and were knocked out of Euro 2020 by England at the last 16 stage.

Klopp took charge of the Reds in 2015 and has since enjoyed huge success, taking charge of 435 matches across all competitions.

The German has guided the Merseyside outfit to seven trophies during his eight-year spell at Anfield, including the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.

It is also claimed that Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel, who guided Chelsea to the Champions League in 2021, is another coach being considered for the vacant Germany role.
