Liverpool boss Klopp: Coach Real Madrid? Why not Real Mallorca - that would be nice!

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has joked about taking the Real Madrid job.

Klopp has long been linked with their Champions League quarterfinal opponents.

"When I came out of the plane, I regret already that I don't live here!" said Klopp, after he had finished laughing. "The weather is so much better here… you cannot imagine! I have a gilet with me and all these kind of things! You are blessed living here. We go the hard way."

Klopp was then asked which of Spain's three superpowers – Real, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid – would best fit his character.

"I'd fit to all of them," he said. "The only problem my Spanish is really bad. You wouldn't enjoy having me in Spain and I speak this broken Spanish. We joke about (me) ordering a beer.

"You can't work with that for a long time! Who is manager of Real Mallorca? That would be nice, to live at least!"
