Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick is going out the exit door in the summer and that leaves the club on the lookout for a new manager.

Bayern Munich

CEO

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge

stated that the club has not made a decision about their next manager yet and speculations are raising regarding their target being

Liverpool

boss

Jurgen Klopp

.

The German tactician, who is in charge at Anfield, was not impressed by his side’s decision on joining the new European Super League.

Notwithstanding his contract keeping him until 2024, rumors suggest that he may depart after a challenging season for the Reds.

When asked about the speculations surrounding Klopp, Rummenigge told 

Corriere della Sera

:

"We have not yet decided on the coach, first we win the championship and then we decide what to do. 

"Of course, he spoke heavily against his company."

The Reds manager told

Sky Sports

:

"I am 20 years in football, and a lot of times owners made decisions without asking me, and I deal with it. I don’t want to be involved in these things, I don’t understand them. I’m a football person. It’s not about letting me down.

"I’m here as a football coach and manager, and I will do that as long as people let me do that. I heard today that I will resign or whatever. If times get even tougher, that makes me even more sticky that I will stay here. I feel responsible for the team, responsible for the club and for the relationship we have with our fans. It’s a very tough time, but I will try to help to sort it somehow."

No German clubs have joined the ESL, with Bayern and Borussia Dortmund criticizing the plans. Rummenigge reassured that the club is not thinking about joining the new tournament.

He added:

"We're not inside because we don't want to be part of it.

"We are happy to play in the Bundesliga, a 'bread and butter' business, as the British say.

"We are happy to make the Champions League and do not forget the responsibility towards our fans, who are generally against such reform. And we also feel the responsibility towards football in general."
