Klopp laughs off Fenerbahce rumours

Published Add your comment

He's one of the most in-demand managers in European football, but Turkey clearly doesn't tickle Jurgen Klopp's fancy as the Borussia Dortmund manager rubbishes rumours of a move to Fenerbahce.

The German was said to have been in Istanbul for talks over a proposed move to the Super Lig following his confirmed departure from the struggling Dortmund last month.

In typically emphatic fashion, though, Klopp has ridiculed such rumours, launching a tirade of abuse upon the reports that suggested he was heading to Turkey.

As reported by, he said: "You don't have to believe every dumba** who tweets something. I wasn't in Istanbul, every part of me is here."

Despite the rumours surrounding his future, Klopp remains focused on the task at hand with Dortmund, who are striving to secure a place in the Europa League next season.

His men take on Werder Bremen at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday in what will be the eccentric manager's final league and home game in charge, with the 47-year-old hopeful that, if his side win, Augsburg lose to Borussia Monchengladbach which would open the door to secure sixth.

"There will be a special atmosphere, because it is the last home match. It is also the last home match for Sebastian Kehl," Klopp said.

"I don't want to imagine what will be in my head when the match is over. It is not a nice thought. But I don't allow myself to think about it now.

"I want one last full-throttle-event at the Westfalenstadion. Getting into the Europa League means everything to me.


Regardless of the result, Klopp will leave behind a legacy to live long in the memory of Dortmund fans, and indeed European football, having won two Bundesliga titles, a DFB-Pokal and reaching the Champions League final in 2013.

Klopp can, however, sign off in style should his side beat Wolfsburg in the DFB-Pokal final on May 30.
