Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp insisted that he is not paying attention to the English Premier League’s interest in his services.
The 47-year-old announced earlier this month that he will end his seven-year stay at the Signal Iduna Park in the summer, which prompted fresh speculation that he could head to England.
The German boss has long been tipped to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal and has more recently been linked with managerial jobs at Liverpool or Manchester City.
Despite the attraction, Klopp insisted he is only concentrating on his final season with Dortmund.
“I’m not interested in what the Premier League thinks of me,” he said.
“I’m just looking forward to the rest of our season.”
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said that he expects to continue as head coach at Anfield through the summer, and asked if he was confident that he would be in charge next season, he said: “Very much so. I don’t think there’s anyone better. That’s the reality of how I see it.
“Three months ago I was a tactical genius, performing to a good level.
“We lost some important games and now I’m not so good. That’s football, people will speculate.”
Meanwhile, Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini does not fear the sack at the Etihad Stadium.
The Chilean said: “The owners haven’t told me what they need but you are wrong if you think that, at this club, if you don’t win the title then you’re out.
“That’s the problem. Maybe you can win a title and still be out, maybe you don’t win the title and can continue.
“If we don’t finish in the top four then the analysis of the season will be different. But to say ‘win the title or you’re out.’ I don’t think that is the way the owners here think.”
