Liverpool boss Klopp: Why I won't work in Serie A

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits moving to Italy is unlikely.

Klopp says not knowing the language would be a problem.

“I will not come to Italy, because I want to travel after my career," Klopp told Radio Anch'io Sport. “A good glass of wine, I will have fun with Arrigo [Sacchi]. Either with [Carlo] Ancelotti or with [Maurizio] Sarri.

“I love your country, the weather, the fantastic food. But to do my job, I will need to know the language and my Italian is not very good.

“I would need time, maybe a year to learn Italian and then I could think about it, but who knows. On holiday I will certainly come, but to work, who knows?"

He added: “The most important coach I learned from is Arrigo, after everything he did with his Milan.

“Those things have been implemented in our team and the base of everything I do is what Arrigo did."
