Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has ruled himself out of taking the Germany job.
Klopp has been installed as one of the favourites to replace under-pressure Joachim Low in the wake of last week’s humiliating 6-0 defeat to Spain in the UEFA Nations League.
It was Germany’s biggest defeat in almost 90 years and their biggest ever competitive defeat.
But Klopp moved quickly to quash any link with the nations team job.
“Maybe in the future but now, no, because I have no time,” he said ahead of Liverpool’s game with Leicester City on Sunday night.
“I also have a job – a pretty intense job by the way.
“I am not sure if anybody has asked me but if they don’t know I have a job here at Liverpool – even if the weather is bad again!
“I like it and I am responsible for a lot of things here so I will not go and search for another challenge.”
