Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri has claimed on Twitter that Jurgen Klopp has rejected an approach from Juventus.

Earlier this month, Calciomercato reported that Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group are ready to offer Jurgen Klopp a record-breaking new contract in the face of interest from Juventus.

Juventus boss Maximiliano Allegri has since been sacked by the Serie A serial winners and Klopp has apparently rejected an approach to become their new owner.

Writing on Twitter, Tancredi Palmeri said: “BOOM! Klopp has been contacted by Juventus, but with no consequence.”

Boom, indeed!

 

This news will be music to the ears of Liverpool fans. The German manager has awoken the Reds from their status as a sleeping giant and is on the verge of winning the Champions League with the Anfield outfit.

While there are certainly other managers out there that could do something special at Anfield, there aren’t any that are considered likely to be as good a fit for the people in the city as Klopp is.

The former Borussia Dortmund reflects the values of a working-class society and seems to always say the right things to the media while avoiding controversies at all times.

Hopefully, the news that he is nearing a huge contract extension is true as it would be virtually impossible to find a manager that would be able to replicate what he has accomplished in the last four years.
