German hotshot declares love for Merseyside outfit.
Germany striker Miroslav Klose has revealed that he would like to join either Liverpool or Inter Milan when he eventually leaves Bayern Munich.
The 31-year-old has scored goals consistently throughout his career, netting 44 and 53 in the league for previous clubs Kaiserslautern and Werder Bremen prior to signing on the dotted line at the Allianz Arena.
The Polish-born goal-getter has scored a further 20 in 55 Bundesliga outings since joining the German giants in 2007.
And although he insisted that he is happy to stay put for the foreseeable future, he admitted that two teams that do appeal to him are Liverpool and Inter Milan, who signed Brazilian defender Lucio from Bayern during the close-season.
“I am very happy at Bayern Munich and I intend to stay,” the striker, who has 48 goals in 92 caps for Germany and won the 2006 World Cup Golden Shoe, told Kicker.
“But it is normal that in Europe, there are other big clubs of the highest level.
“I have two teams that I follow with pleasure and curiosity.
“In England, it is Liverpool and in Italy, I like the Inter of [Jose] Mourinho, who I consider to be a great coach.” (Four Four Two)
Now hold the front page. I am a big fan of German international Miroslav Klose and it appears that he is a fan of Liverpool Football Club. Their are few more accomplished strikers in the game than the Polish born 31 year old, a player who has scored an incredible 48 international goals for his country, the last of which came in their crucial win over Russia on the weekend.
I don’t want to get carried away, but can you imagine how well, in the short term, such a player could work with Fernando Torres? Clearly Klose’s comments show his hopeful intent to move to Anfield but at the same time he is having a good spell at Bayern Munich. Anyone who needs reminding just how consistent and lethal a finisher Miroslav is just needs to take a look at his Bundesliga stats. In each of the last nine seasons he has reached double figures and it is also worth noting that as relatively late starter, Klose broke into the top tier aged 21, he could have a lot more in the tank than his 31 years would suggest. He has scored 41 goals in this last two seasons after all.
