The German coach, currently taking some time off, is seen by many as the most suitable replacement for Pep Guardiola with the Bavarian side.

Even if he is taking a break from his coaching duties, Jürgen Klopp is still seen as one of the best coaches available for any club. Today, his former employer, Hans-Joachim Watzke, proposed the German coach as the best replacement for Pep Guardiola with Bayern Munich, adding his name to a number of former players and coaches that want to see him coaching the Bavarian side.

During the last few days, and following Die Roten's penalty shootout loss against Wolfsburg, fomer players such as Lothar Matthäus and Stefan Effenberg denied Pep Guardiola's coaching style was right for the club, and demanded his term as coach ends this season. Matthäus went eve further and proposed Klopp as the best coach available, something that Watzke supported today.

"Jürgen Klopp is more than a suitable coach for any top club, and I think Klopp and Bayern would be a perfect combination. Klopp and Bayern would be perfect for each other," Watzke stated during an interview.

Klopp denied Bayern a spot in the DFB Pokal final last season, when Dortmund eliminated Bayern after penalties.

Watzke knows how Klopp works, after seven years of cooperating with one another. During his seven years with the yellow and black side, Klopp led Borussia Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles and two DFL Super Cup victories, while coaching the the team to the 2012-2013 UEFA Champions League final, which they ended up losing against Bayern Munich.

Although Klopp's name is still in the agenda of some top European clubs (Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City) and even National teams (Russia, Mexico), the German boss is still taking some time off while he decides where he will be coaching next.
