Yes, I Turned Down Man United - Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he turned down Manchester United before they appointed Louis van Gaal for the 2014-15 season.
"Yes, there was interest - Manchester United, yes, they were interested a year or a year and a half before, but it didn't feel right," he said.

"I couldn't say Man United is not my club, it didn't feel right. Yes, I'm a football romantic.

"I'm confident but not as confident as other managers, thinking this club will call, that club will call.

"A lot of clubs called and I said 'No, no chance, I need to make a break now'. Even my wife knew, if Liverpool is calling, I go.

" When Liverpool called, I had no chance. It was actually too early for my plans. I said, 'Wow, come on!' 

"But then coming here and feeling the spirit immediately, it was just, for me, a match in heaven."
