Pundit issues two-word verdict on Klopp potentially leaving Liverpool as three-man shortlist reported
There is “no chance” of Jurgen Klopp leaving Liverpool to replace Ronald Koeman at Barcelona.
That is the view of former Spurs and England number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Klopp’s future at Anfield.
According to El Nacional, via The Express (September 22nd), Barcelona president Joan Laporta has placed Klopp, 54, on a three-man shortlist to potentially take over at the Nou Camp.
It comes as pressure increases on Ronald Koeman’s position at the La Liga giants following a disappointing start to the season.
Klopp has three years remaining on his contract at Anfield.
When asked by Football Insider if Klopp would likely be tempted by the Barca job, Robinson issued an emphatic two-word reply: “No chance”.

He added: “He would not leave Liverpool for Barcelona given their financial state.
“Klopp has worked so hard over a number of years to get that squad to where it is now so why would he give it up for a club in crisis?
“It would have to be an unbelievable project to prize him away. I don’t think Barcelona in its current state is a big enough draw for Klopp.
“Financially, we know where Barcelona are at. They are not the Barcelona of old.
“Don’t get me wrong, Barcelona are a huge draw. They are one of if not the biggest club in the world alongside Real Madrid and Manchester United.
“They are not what they used to be though and it will take him a while to get back there.”
