Klopp won’t take over at Gladbach, says agent

21 September 2015, 17:01

Berlin - Jurgen Klopp will not take over at Borussia Moenchengladbach, the agent of the ex-Borussia Dortmund coach confirmed on Monday, as Gladbach seek to replace Lucien Favre following his shock resignation.

"Jurgen Klopp will not be the Borussia Moenchengladbach coach," Klopp's agent Marc Kosicke told magazine Sport Bild.

After losing their opening five Bundesliga matches to go bottom of the Bundesliga, Champions League side Gladbach need a new coach after Favre abruptly resigned on Sunday in the wake of his team's 1-0 defeat at Cologne the day before.

In a statement, Favre said he no longer felt like "the perfect coach for Gladbach" and wanted to quit after four years in charge, having steered them to third in the Bundesliga last season to earn a Champions League berth.

But the Swiss' abrupt exit has left the club high and dry as Gladbach host Augsburg on Wednesday looking for their first league point of the season, then travel to play Stuttgart on Saturday.

Gladbach, who host Manchester City in their second Champions League game in nine days having already lost 3-0 away to Sevilla last Wednesday in their opening game, will hold a press conference at 1400 local time (1200 GMT) on Monday.

Having walked away from Dortmund at the end of last season to take a self-imposed coaching sabbatical, Klopp is weighing up his options after winning the German league titles in 2011 and 2012.

The 48-year-old Klopp was at his former club Mainz on Friday to see their 3-1 win over Hoffenheim.

Although ex-Germany coach Berti Vogts has said Klopp would be a good fit at Gladbach, experienced coaches Jos Luhukay, Mirko Slomka, Thomas Schaaf and Horst Steffen have all been linked to the club as Favre's possible replacement.
