Jose Mourinho today ruled out any talk of Borussia Dortmund head coach Jurgen Klopp replacing him as Chelsea boss at the end of the season, reports the Guardian.

Speaking at his press conference, Mourinho made sure he rubbished any outlandish claims that Klopp could take his seat at Stamford Bridge next season:

“He is a very good coach, a good friend and we have been been in touch. The only thing he told me was that he is not coming to Chelsea for sure, so I’m calm!" Mourinho joked.

ENGLAND BOUND?

The Dortmund manager, who leaves Signal Iduna Park at the end of the season, may not be going for the Chelsea job - but we could be seeing Klopp facing Mourinho with both the Manchester City and Arsenal job being viable opportunities.

Arsene Wenger, who out of him and City boss Manuel Pellegrini is least likely to be replaced next season, did not take too kindly to the questioning he was given surrounding Klopp’s departure.

Wenger: The Klopp circus is ridiculous 

“I’m not an agency to place managers and I like every manager and respect everybody, but I find that circus a bit ridiculous,” Wenger told reporters on Wednesday. “It's down to every club to make the right decision and to respect Dortmund.

“Dortmund is a massive club and will survive, and has the ability to keep their best players. They have a big history linked with great results and great achievements so I don't think that will stop Dortmund.”

Despite Klopp being linked to the Arsenal job, many Gunners remain supportive of Wenger - especially with them still in contention for Premier League and FA Cup.
