Jürgen Klopp has reportedly rejected an approach to become the new Juventus manager, according to journalist Tancredi Palmeri.

Massimiliano Allegri recently confirmed that he will leave the Old Lady at the end of the season.

So Juventus are beginning to search for his successor, with Klopp allegedly scoped out as a target.

According to Palmeri, the Turin club has approached Klopp, with no surprises as to the response they received.

Palmeri tweeted: “BOOM! Klopp has been contacted by Juventus, but with no consequence.”

It’s hardly surprised that any alleged interest in Liverpool’s manager has immediately been rebuffed.

Klopp has enjoyed another brilliant season, coming within a point of the title and reaching another Champions League final.

Fans on Twitter reacted hysterically to the news that the Italian side were after Klopp’s services.

 

FSG will be in no mood to entertain bids for Klopp’s services, as they see him as Liverpool’s future.

Klopp signed a six-year contract extension at Liverpool in 2016, keeping him on Merseyside until 2022.

This reiterates both Klopp’s and FSG’s desire to build sustained success at Anfield and not elsewhere.

Klopp clearly has the backing of the owners, demonstrated in the big money signings made last season.

No other manager has enjoyed such a large transfer budget under FSG, showing their faith in Klopp.

In his time at Liverpool, Klopp has built an incredible affinity with the supporters, meaning he’s very happy at Anfield.

It would be one of football’s biggest shocks to see Klopp leave Liverpool, especially at present.

He’s guided them back into Europe’s elite and silverware, you feel, is just around the corner.

There’s nothing that would make Klopp want to leave Liverpool, so we can put this to bed.
