Klopp firming as favourite for Chelsea owner Abramovich

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is on the shortlist for Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich. The Daily Mail says the 44-year-old features prominently on Roman Abramovich's list of high-profile candidates to become the ninth manager of his reign, should top choices Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho fail to answer the call.

Klopp led Dortmund to their first Bundesliga title since 2002 last season and has put together one of Europe's most exciting sides, nurturing young talents such Mario Gotze, Mats Hummels and Sven Bender, and impressing Abramovich in the process.
