Jurgen Klopp extends contract at Borussia Dortmundby Jack Kitson / 30 October 2013, 13:53Tweet
Jurgen Klopp has quashed rumours that he may leave Borussia Dortmund in the near future by signing a two-year contract extension at the Westfalenstadion. The new deal means that the highly-rated boss will remain in charge of the club up until 2018 - much to the delight of Dortmund fans - with a move to the Premier League now appearing more distant than ever.
Klopp has had a huge impact at Dortmund since charge back in 2008. In his first season in the dugout Klopp won the DFB-Supercup, and then in 2010/11 he led them to their first Bundesliga title since 2001/02, before surpassing that by winning the league and cup double the following campaign. Last season Dortmund finished runners-up to feirce rivals Bayern Munich in both the Bundesliga and Champions League, although they received numerous plaudits for their impressive run in Europe, which included two wins over Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Klopp's success with Dortmund has unsurprisingly attracted the interest of Europe's top clubs. However, he has so far opted to remain in Germany and his new deal means he will stay on for some time. At the moment he is aiming to wrestle back the Bundesliga title from Bayern, who won it with six games remaining last season. Dortmund are currently one point behind the Bavarian outfit after 10 games, with the duo locking horns in what promises to be a mouth-watering clash on 23rd November.
