Liverpool boss Klopp: I never considered Man Utd job; even weather is better here!

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says joining Manchester United has never crossed his mind.

Fortunately for Koppites, the German chose Liverpool and has brought the glory days back with Champions League and Premier League wins.

"I never thought how it would have been at Manchester, not for one second because I am completely fine here. I am in the right place," said Klopp.

"Even the weather is better in Liverpool than Manchester!

"Alex and I have contact, He texts to say 'This is my new number' and I take it as a big honour. We have a really good relationship.

"We were friends from my point of view working together for something good and on Sunday, he wants Manchester United to win, and I want Liverpool to win. That is possible (and still be friends)."
