Jurgen Klopp responds to Liverpool manager speculation
Jurgen Klopp was giving nothing away on Tuesday afternoon...
Jurgen Klopp has refused to be drawn on the speculation linking him with the vacant Liverpool manager’s job.
The former Borussia Dortmund boss is the heavy favourite to be named as Brendan Rodgers’ successor at Anfield following the Northern Irishman’s sacking on Sunday.
Liverpool are thought to have already made contact with Klopp as they look to have a new manager in place before the end of the current international break.
However, the German remained coy when quizzed about the speculation by reporters on Tuesday afternoon.
“There’s nothing to say,” Klopp told Germany newspaper Bild when asked about the possibility of returning to management in the Premier League.
“Neither a definite yes nor a definite no. I’m going home now.”
Klopp led Borussia Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012, and also guided them to the 2013 Champions League final, where they were beaten by Bayern Munich.
Liverpool, who are currently in 10th place in the table and six points behind leaders Manchester City, return to Premier League action when they travel to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday 17 October.
