Elber really wants Guardiola out of Bayern and Klopp in, as the former Bayern striker wants Klopp to snub the Liverpool job and wait for Bayern.
It is understood that Klopp intends to fly into Liverpool today and finalize his deal, with the Reds hoping to unveil the former Dortmund manager on Friday.
Elber, on the other hand is bemused by the move and believes Klopp should continue his sabbatical as he believes Guardiola won’t be with Bayern next season.
Speaking to Goal in an exclusive interview, he said: “Why would Klopp go to England? He belongs to Germany, the Bundesliga needs him. He should recover for a year now, at FC Bayern there is action all the time.
“He needs the strength to resist the pressure. I believe he will be Bayern manager in the summer of 2016.
“Yes, I would be happy if he becomes Bayern’s manager.”
Elber believes that Guardiola’s silence over his Bayern future is an indicator that he will leave the club, and he insists that Klopp would be a perfect replacement for the former Barcelona boss.
“It is obvious that Bayern are waiting for Pep Guardiola,” he added.
“Right now we’re in October and there is still no decision. So I think that he won’t renew his contract and leave Munich next summer.
“And Jurgen Klopp is a big name, a manager who proved at Dortmund what he is able to achieve. He is a German manager, he knows the Bundesliga and was in the Champions League final with Dortmund. If he is available, Bayern have to react.”
