An Everton supporter tried his luck when questioning the German manager on whether he would ever fancy replacing Carlo Ancelotti at Everton once the three-time Champions League-winning manager leaves Goodison Park.
However, Klopp quickly played down the unlikely scenario that would see the Liverpool boss make the short trip across Stanley Park to take charge of the Toffees.
He said: “”No, no, no no no.”
“I was at Dortmund so I can’t go to Schalke.
“I’m at Liverpool so I can’t go to Everton. No chance. That’s a rule.”
What RTK has to say
Klopp’s loyalty is testament to his character which is why the FIFA Coach of the Year will never be holding the reigns at the home of Liverpool’s noisy neighbours.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager has already earnt club-icon status at Anfield following an 18 month period that has established Liverpool into serial winners.
Having claimed his first trophy in the Champions League last season, Klopp has since added the Super Cup as well as the Club World Cup and is currently on course to claim Liverpool’s first league title since 1990.
While Everton have made impressive strides under Ancelotti – who is one of the most experienced and respected coaches in club football – the reality is that Klopp is in a completely different league in terms of how he is viewed by his own respected fan base.
The man who delivered European Cup No.6 back to Anfield has been the club’s most transformative manager since Bill Shankly and has taken the team from nearly rans to undisputed kings of the world.
