Klopp rules out Bayern job

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has ruled himself out of the running for the Bayern Munich job.

With Louis van Gaal revealing that he is to step aside at Allianz Arena at the end of the season, Bayern will have a managerial void to fill this summer.

The search for a successor to their current Dutch tactician has already begun, with numerous names mentioned as possible candidates.

Among those touted has been Dortmund boss Klopp, following his remarkable success this season.

He has led his side to the Bundesliga summit and is closing in on the club’s first league title in nine years.

Klopp is not prepared to walk away from a team he believes is on the up and has informed Bayern that they would be wasting their time were they to make an approach.

"If Bayern ring me, then I will tell them that I have a contract at Dortmund until 2014," he told Bild.

Klopp was believed to be in contention for the Bayern post back in 2008, but lost out to Jurgen Klinsmann.

He is not prepared to even be considered this time around, meaning the likes of Guus Hiddink, Martin Jol and Joachim Low remain the favourites to get the job.
