Klopp rejects Premier League for new Borussia Dortmund contract

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has thanked Premier League clubs for their interest.

But the German insists he's happy where he is.

Klopp has committed himself until 2018 and he was on top form as he explained his decision to the media at a press conference.

"It's an honour when one or two other top clubs think that you're doing a good job, but to be perfectly honest, I'm not the kind of person who constantly wonders whether the grass may be greener elsewhere," he said.

"It's no cliche when I say that it's always important in life to be in the right place at the right time, and for me, Dortmund is the perfect place to be."

Klopp has been subject to interest from both Manchester City and Chelsea while he has been earmarked as long term successor to Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
