Klopp tight-lipped over Liverpool speculation

06 October 2015, 14:07

Berlin - Jurgen Klopp is staying tight-lipped about rumours linking him to the vacancy at Liverpool with the ex-Borussia Dortmund coach widely tipped as the hot favourite to replace Brendan Rodgers.

Klopp was in Leverkusen on Monday to attend a coaching conference and refused to comment to a reporter from German daily Bild with the British media making the 48-year-old the overwhelming favourite to replace Rodgers, who was sacked on Sunday.

"There's nothing to say, neither this nor that. I'm driving home now," said Klopp, who has been on sabbatical since quitting Dortmund at the end of last season.

Meanwhile, ex-Germany captain Oliver Kahn says Klopp's good level of English makes him an ideal candidate to awaken the sleeping giants, who are 10th in the Premier League table, but the language barrier could still be a problem, especially given the strong Merseyside accent.

"The question is always a bit about the language barrier," said Kahn.

"From the technical side of things, there is nothing to think about.

"I'd absolutely trust him to have no big problem with English, but sometimes, as far as motivating a team goes, there are subtleties in the team language and whether he already has those subtleties remains to be seen."
