Klopp gives Chelsea rumours the chop

Published Add your comment

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant Chelsea manager post come the end of the season.


The Stamford Bridge side are looking for a new manager after Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich sacked Andre Villas-Boas two weeks ago.


Former midfielder Roberto di Matteo is currently in temporary charge but BVB boss Klopp has been mentioned, along with Jose Mourinho and Pepe Guardiola, as one of the Blues’ owner’s preferred choices to take over in the summer, but he is happy with the Bundesliga champions.


“I can turn them down straight away," he told German Sky television after his side's German Cup semi-final victory on Tuesday night.


“I will not be moving there. But I do think it is cool that I am being named in the same breath as Mourinho and Guardiola.


“That is enough for me – that is already a personal triumph but I am not available, sorry.”


It will take a lot to tempt Klopp away from the Westfalenstadion, as he has overseen a revolution at the famous German club, winning the title last year and currently leading the Bundesliga by five points over Bayern Munich.


The 44-year-old also signed a new two-year contract extension in January and it would take a hefty compensation fee to prize him away from Dortmund.
