Jurgen Klopp sets his sights on the Premier Leagueby Jack Kitson / 10 June 2015, 09:14Tweet
Jurgen Klopp is keen to manage in the Premier League once he returns from his planned six-month sabbatical. The German, who left Borussia Dortmund at the end of last season, is believed to be eager to test himself in the glitz and glamour of England's top-flight - according to his agent Marc Kosicke - which will no doubt put one or two clubs on red alert.
Klopp was bidding to leave Dortmund on a high by leading his beloved club to German Cup glory, but they were beaten 3-1 by Wolfsburg. However, the popular 47-year-old can still look back on a superb seven years at The Black and Yellows, having hoisted two league titles, the German Cup, three DFL-Supercups, plus a Champions League runners-up medal.
Both Liverpool and Manchester City have been hotly linked with Klopp, but the German's decision to recharge his batteries has cooled speculation...for now. Furthermore the Reds recently revealed that they have kept the faith in Brendan Rodgers, while City appear content to keep hold of Pellegrini for one more season. However, should either club endure a poor start to the 2015/16 season, then those rumours will come flooding back...so stay tuned.
