Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has ruled out the possibility of becoming Manchester United's next manager following the sacking of David Moyes.

Klopp was one of the early frontrunners to replace the outgoing Manchester United boss and is highly thought of by the Old Trafford faithful.

However the German tactician has refuted claims he would be interested in taking over the reins at Manchester United as he is committed to Dortmund.

Klopp has said he is happy to remain at Dortmund and owes to abide by his contract which runs out in 2018.

The 46-year-old, speaking to the Guardian, said on reports linking him with a move to Manchester United: "Man Utd is a great club and I feel very familiar with their wonderful fans.

"But my commitment to Borussia Dortmund and the people is not breakable."

Louis van Gaal is the bookies' favourite to become the next manager of Manchester United at 6/4 - with current caretaker boss Ryan Giggs also among the potential contenders to replace Moyes at the helm of Manchester United.

The Red Devils would not have to fork out a significant fee to entice the 62-year-old to the club as the former Bayern Munich boss will leave his current role as the manager of the Dutch national team after the World Cup.
