Mario Gotze hints at Jurgen Klopp reunion

Mario Gotze has refused to rule out the possibility of a reunion with his former manager Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool FC this summer.

And should the Fekir deal fall through, Klopp may look towards one of his former Dortmund stars - Mario Gotze.

Gotze's switch to Bayern saw him link up with current Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, but he conceded the change in management style proved hard to adjust to after being nurtured under Klopp since he was 17-years-old.

"And I was also interested in working with him again", Gotze said in the DAZN documentary "Being Mario Gotze".

"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 chose to join Borussia Dortmund, but it was not a decision against Liverpool or Jürgen Klopp".

The forward scored the victor in the 2014 World Cup final but there is no place for him this year, and that's left him wondering whether he should breathe fresh life into his football by reuniting with Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool are widely believed to be on the brink of signing Nabil Fekir [The Independent] from Lyon, who operates in a similar role as Gotze, so there would be little reason to bring both to Anfield.

"Pep was completely different".

"But I had the feeling that he only thinks of the pitch and leaves out people and those on the outside". The Nabil Fekir saga continues to rumble on with the France global reportedly on the verge of finally sealing his move from Lyon despite various delays.
