Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp staggered by Premier League interest

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp admits it is weird to see his name linked with clubs in the Premier League.

The 48-year old has guided Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga titles in the past two seasons and has subsequently been touted as a future boss in England's top flight but he admits he finds those rumours a surprise.

"I believe it was strange to see my name being linked with Chelsea and Liverpool, " Klopp told France Football.

"Jurgen Klopp, born in the Black Forest, future coach of a great English club. It sounds nice. The English press even suggested that I could make it, but if you look closely you will see that I would not.

"I am under contract at Dortmund and there is no chance that I will leave. I am an admirer of English football, but I am already working at a great European club and I feel fine.

"It is nice, though, to be linked with other clubs rather than remain an unknown."
