Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Gotze has revealed that he is keen to reunite with former boss Jurgen Klopp.
The pair worked together successfully at the Bundesliga club before Gotze decided to move on to join rivals Bayern Munich – a move which did not work out as hoped for him.
He returned to Dortmund following Klopp’s departure, turning down the chance to head to Anfield to work with his former manager once again – but is now open to the idea.
“I decided to leave Bayern and Jurgen Klopp was interested in getting me to Liverpool.” he revealed in DAZN documentary Being Mario Gotze.
“And I was also interested in working with him again.
“It’s still existing.
“He is a world-class coach and that’s why it’s always an option.
“I decided to join Borussia Dortmund, but it was not a decision against Liverpool or Jurgen Klopp.
“But on the contrary.” he finished.
Liverpool are unlikely to be making a move for Gotze any time soon, given his form over the past couple of seasons, but the World Cup winner seems hopeful that he could link up with Klopp once again down the line.
