Klopp Turns Down Marseille
Jurgen Klopp’s agent has revealed that the former Borussia Dortmund coach has turned down the chance to become Marseille‘s new head coach.
The French outfit are looking for a new boss following the shock resignation of Marcelo Bielsa afer their Ligue 1 opener at the weekend and they had earmarked Klopp as the ideal replacement.
However, the 48-year-old, who parted company with Dortmund at the end of last season, is not interested in returning to coaching just yet.
“It is correct that Klopp has rejected Marseille,” Klopp’s representative, Marc Kosicke, told Bild.
“OM were really interested in signing him, but the time is not right yet for Jurgen to return to coaching.”
