Jurgen Klopp opens door to Premier League clubs

Published 1 Comments

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has opened the door for Premier League teams to poach him from the Bundesliga.

Klopp, who has been heavily linked with Arsenal and Manchester United, revealed that England will be the likely destination of his next job - mainly because of the language.

“I think it’s the only country I think where I should work, next to Germany because it’s the only country I know the language a little bit and I need the language for my work," Klopp told BT Sport’s nightly news and information show, SportsHUB.

“If somebody will call me, then we will talk about it.”

Dortmund have had a poor start to the season and lie just a point above the automatic relegation places 11 games into the campaign, stirring up more rumours Klopp could be leaving in the near future.

The German took over in 2008 and has guided the club to two successive league titles, one domestic cup and a Champions League final.

His overachievements in a country that continues to be dominated by Bayern Munich are why he is rated so highly in England.

New contract

Last year Klopp signed a new contract until 2018 and does not want to put a time-frame on when he eventually leave Dortmund.

“I'm really interested in life, it's not important for me to stay for a long time in the same place. My children are old enough to stay alone, that's not the problem. I am here for more than 6 years, I don't know when it will end,” he concluded.

Watch the interview in full on SportsHUB, BT Sport's news and information show, tomorrow (Saturday 22nd) on BT Sport 1 from 3pm. Klopp also features in the European Football Show on Sunday (BT Sport 1 from 6.30pm), culminating in live coverage of the Milan derby.
