German newspaper Bild reported that the 45-year-old Borussia Dortmund coach suggested that Mourinho would be quitting the Spanish capital to return to Stamford Bridge for a second managerial stint as soon as this season ends.
However, Klopp spoke out to scotch the claims and he insisted that he would never reveal anything about the Portuguese tactician who he classes as a friend.
“It is an absolutely ridiculous story,” he told reporters. “I never told anyone that Mourinho is going to Chelsea or another club. I’m not a person who does things like that.
“I heard this story before our game with Fortuna and I have to admit I was very sad and angry because it is completely false.
“It is a made up story. Mourinho is a colleague and a friend and I would never mess around in such a manner.”
