Dortmund Coach Klopp not interested in Chelsea post

Borussia Dortmund Coach Jurgen Klopp has said he would not be interested in the chance to manage Chelsea after rumours arose that the Blues owner Roman Abramovich had targeted the German to take over at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, according to the Daily Mail.

Klopp, speaking after his side reached the German Cup final, said: “I can turn [Chelsea] down straight away. I will not be moving there…I am not available.

The 44-year-old has been with Dortmund since 2008, having previously spent seven years in charge of Mainz 05. A former Mainz striker, Klopp oversaw the promotion of the side to the Bundesliga in 2003-04 before switching to Dortmund, where he won the title in 2010-11 and was named Manager of the Year.

With Dortmund five points clear of Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga table with eight games to play and now through to the German Cup final Klopp’s side are well-placed to complete a league and cup double. The Mail adds that Klopp recently signed a contract extension at Dortmund, tying him to the club until 2016.
