Arsenal and Liverpool managerial target Jurgen Klopp has ruled out a move away from Borussia Dortmund, but is facing the sack after seeing his side bottom of the Bundesliga, Daily Mail reports.
The German boss has no intention of leaving Dortmund, even after the club’s eight loss this season with the latest result a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.
Dortmund were champions back in 2011 and achieved a league and cup double a year later, but find themselves bottom for the first time since 2007.
This has fuelled rumours their manager is set to depart, but Klopp told Sky Sports: “I can understand journalists thinking about something like that but there is no such trend (within the club). I see myself as being responsible.”
“If it is only about luck and a change in coach can bring that, then call me up and I will make way.
“But as long as nobody comes and says ‘we have someone who makes it better’ then I cannot go. I am not in the way but I cannot go before there is a better solution. This is a big responsibility and I accept it.”
Injuries to key players, such as Marco Reus and Mats Hummels, have derailed their season but Klopp insists he will stay to help the club bounce back to their proper position.
“We wanted dramatically to improve our situation today but we did not do it,” he added. “But we will keep on working at it.”
