Klopp reveals Premier League interest


WENGER-KLOPPLONDON, November 22- Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed he is keen on managing in the Premier League if he ever leaves Germany.

Klopp has long been linked with a move to England, with Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal all said to have been keen on the German at various times.

The 47-year-old is one of the most highly-regarded coaches in Europe and, with Dortmund struggling in the Bundesliga this season, his revelation that he is a big fan of English football is likely to lead to further speculation about his future.

“It’s the only country, I think, where I should work, really, next to Germany, because it’s the only country I know the language a little bit and I need the language for my work,” Klopp said in an interview with BT Sport’s SportsHUB programme.

“So we will see. If somebody will call me, then we will talk about it.”

Klopp led Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012, and to the Champions League final, where they were beaten by Bayern Munich at Wembley in 2013.

He will be back in England on Wednesday when Dortmund face Arsenal in the Champions League.
