Speculation has been flying around that the German is heading back into management at any one of any number of clubs.
West Ham have approached the 47 year through middle men and have not been turned down but ClaretandHugh’s was told: “He made it clear he will make his mind up in June. He appears to be sticking to that.”
Some media reports in Germany claim he will take six months off although Klopp himself has only partly validated that.
He said regarding his future: “I am a football coach. I want to work for a while, but at the moment it is difficult.”
He has been linked with Real Madrid – where it now seems Rafa Benitez may be headed – West Ham, Liverpool and Manchester City.
