Jurgen Klopp has apparently ruled himself out of contention for the Manchester United job.

The Borussia Dortmund manager was quickly installed among the Sky Bet favourites to succeed David Moyes, sacked on Tuesday after less than a year in charge.

But Klopp signed a new deal at Dortmund as recently as October and is committed to the Bundesliga club until 2018.

And in the hours after Moyes’ exit was confirmed Klopp, quoted in The Guardian, said he will not break that contract.

"Manchester United is a great club and I feel very familiar with their wonderful fans," he told the newspaper, "but my commitment to Borussia Dortmund and the people is not breakable."
