Jurgen Klopp has denied claims he wanted to manage Manchester United.
Liverpool welcomes Jose Mourinho’s side to Anfield tomorrow lunchtime in a crunch Premier League clash.
Klopp’s former boss, Eckhard Krautzun, had claimed that the German wanted to take over at United, long before he joined Liverpool.
“First of all… I heard about an interview of a former manager of mine.
“I really like him, but how it is, when I think too far in the past I’m not 100 per cent sure.
“I was a player with him, how could I, as a really average player, want to manage Manchester United. People think I’m crazy but not that crazy.
“He was a big admirer of Sir Alex Ferguson. He wore a Manchester United coat. He might not remember but I remember!
“A few things are not exactly.. but still funny! I had fun when I read it. Not all is exactly like he said. Sorry!” Klopp said on Friday.
