Loyal to Liverpool – Jurgen Klopp rejects Juventus offer

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has reportedly turned down the chance to replace Massimiliano Allegri as head coach of Juventus at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

Juve will be on the lookout for a new boss this summer with Allegri preparing to depart after five successful years with the Italian champions.

According to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri, who posted a tweet on Sunday night, Juve ‘contacted Klopp’ to discuss a potential move to Turin but the German turned down the approach.

Klopp led Borussia Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles before taking charge of Liverpool in 2015.

The 51-year-old is yet to land any major silverware during his time at Anfield, although the Reds ran Manchester City extremely close in the Premier League this season, while they will play their second successive Champions League final on June 1.

Klopp’s current deal with the Merseyside giants will run until the end of the 2021-22 campaign.
