Liverpool boss Klopp ends Ibrahimovic talk: If he didn't play for Man Utd...

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has laughed off reports the club is interested in signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The 38-year-old is a free agent after announcing he would not re-sign with LA Galaxy.

Asked by Sportbladet, the German tactician said: "If he had not played for Manchester United before, then we might have considered him.

"No, but I'm not even sure he wanted to play here. We're a pretty intense team…

"With that said, I couldn't have had more respect for Zlatan.

"I love his whole career, love his efforts, love his confidence. While it may not always be right, it is entertaining anyway.

"He's a fantastic character and I really hope he doesn't stop playing football. The world will miss him too much."
