LONDON, June 10- According to Jurgen Klopp’s agent, the former Borussia Dortmund manager would be open to joining a Premier League club when he returns to management.

Klopp became one of the most sought after managers recently after he left Dortmund at the end of the season.

The 47-year-old spent seven years with BVB, winning two Bundesliga titles, a German Cup trophy and getting them to the final of the Champions League.

He announced he would take at least six months away from football before taking another management job, but his agent revealed Klopp would consider a job in England once his batteries have been recharged.

“The Premier League is very exciting, and we do not only think about the top four because there are some other great clubs below them,” Marc Kosicke told SPOX.

The only concern Kosike has is whether English clubs are structured in the way that his client will be comfortable working with.

“I am not sure the profile of the job could work,” he said. “In Germany there is a clear separation between manager and sporting director and I think in principle this is very good.

“Jurgen does not like to speak to players’ agents or to carry out a transfer. So we have to see which is the most useful arrangement.”

“It is always all about the challenge,” he added. “When Jurgen signed for Dortmund there were other clubs who had better prestige and were in better financial mood at this time. Nevertheless he decided for Dortmund.

“He has the great ability to develop things. If he goes into a stadium, feels the energy and thinks that he can make a difference here, this could be more attractive to him than going with the big deals and aim for the treble.”
