Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has dismissed reports linking him with Chelsea should interim Blues boss Rafa Benitez leave at the end of the campaign.

But the 45 year old told the Evening Standard: "I have a contract until 2016. I have said 20 times I'll definitely stay until 2016.

"Everybody thinks I say it but that if a club like Chelsea or Real Madrid come in for me, I will go. This is something I can't change but they will see.

"It is a really big honour for me, coming from a small village called Bretten in the Black Forest where 1,500 people live, that somebody thinks I can train Chelsea. It's not a normal story, it's a special story. But I don't think about it.

"I was the coach at Mainz before Dortmund for seven years. Each year I could have left for a Bundesliga club but I said 'no, I have a contract, I will stay'. I enjoy what I'm doing here at Dortmund. It's a great club, a great city, everything is okay."
