Jurgen Klopp has laughed off claims that he could replace Max Allegri as the manager of Juventus this summer – calling the rumours b******t.
Some reports had been claiming that both Pep Guardiola and Klopp were the names that Juve were after once it was announced that Allegri was to leave the Serie A champions.
That might well be true, but neither of them were ever realistically going to leave England this summer.
Jurgen Klopp: "All these rumours I hear about Juventus are bullshit. There is nothing true about it. I am not going to leave Liverpool, I know Serie A very well, I follow it and I like it but I am going to stay at Liverpool."

Why Klopp would be thinking about a move away from the Reds at all, let alone in the week or so before a Champions League final, is beyond us, which is why the reports were never taken seriously by anyone in the first place.
The boss, though, just wanted to definitively rule out a move, presumably when he was asked about the rumours.
Win a sixth European Cup and he’ll go down as a Liverpool legend, no doubt about it. He’s clearly very happy on Merseyside and there’s no way he’d want to leave a project half-finished.
