Klopp keen on Premier League stint

Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has hinted he would be open to managing in the Barclays Premier League.

Klopp has long been linked with a move to England, with Manchester City and Chelsea reported potential destinations in the past and more recently Arsenal.

He has now revealed England is the only country, other than his homeland, in which he would want to ply his trade.

The 47-year-old said: " It's the only country, I think, where I should work, really, next to Germany, because it's the only country I know the language a little bit and I need the language for my work."

Speaking in an interview with BT Sport's SportsHUB programme, which will be aired in full on Saturday afternoon, he added: "So we will see. If somebody will call me, then we will talk about it."

Klopp led Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012, and to the Champions League final last year.
