Outgoing Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he will take a break from management.
Linked with moves to Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City and Napoli, Klopp has now confirmed that he will not be taking up any offer at this time.
This news comes in the wake of Dortmund’s DFB-Pokal final loss to Wolfsburg, which ended Klopp’s reign in defeat.
Klopp is quoted by the BBC as saying,
“After seven intense and emotional years, I think it’s a good idea to let the numerous memories settle in before I take on a new challenge with my team refreshed and motivated.”
“I’m going to take a break until further notice.”
