Mario Gotze has left the door open for a future reunion with his former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp.
Gotze shot through the youth system at Dortmund and became a first-team star under the Liverpool boss as they won back-to-back Bundesliga titles.
Despite leaving for Bayern Munich in 2013, Gotze has retained respect for his former coach.
And he came close to linking up with him again at Anfield when he left the Allianz Arena in 2016.
‘I decided to leave Bayern and Jurgen Klopp was interested in getting me to Liverpool,’ he said in the 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.’
