Klopp to Bayern 100 percent ruled out

Jürgen Klopp's agent has ruled out the possibility of the Liverpool manager joining Bayern this summer.
Jürgen Klopp is not an option to replace Thomas Tuchel as Bayern Munich coach this summer.

Klopp has confirmed that he'll be stepping down as Liverpool manager at the end of the season.

But taking over the Bayern job is not a possibility for the former Borussia Dortmund coach, who wants to take a one-year sabbatical, his agent, Marc Kosicke, has confirmed to Sky Germany.

"Jürgen Klopp will not coach any club or national team for a year after this current season. That remains unchanged," Kosicke said.

Bayer Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso is said to have been identified as Bayern's top candidate, with Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte also mentioned in relation to the job.
