Klopp will not be succeeding Moyes at Old Trafford.
Jurgen Klopp will not be the next Manchester United manager as the Borussia Dortmund boss has ruled out succeeding David Moyes.
Moyes was sacked following a poor first campaign in charge at Old Trafford after taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson last summer and was just 10 months into a six-year contract.
Klopp was among the favourites to be appointed as the next man in charge at United, but the German has said that it will not be happening.
“Man Utd is a great club and I feel very familiar with their wonderful fans,” the 46-year-old was quoted by the Guardian.
“But my commitment to Borussia Dortmund and the people is not breakable.”
It means that current Netherlands national team coach Louis van Gaal is now the favourite to succeed Moyes at the Theatre of Dreams.
The 62-year-old has already confirmed he will be leaving his post with the Dutch after the 2014 World Cup and has also openly admitted his desire to manage in the Premier League.
Having won league titles in Spain, Germany and his home nation – as well as the Champions League with Ajax in 1995 – van Gaal is certainly experienced enough to take the job.
However, missing out on Klopp is likely to come as a disappointment to many Red Devils supporters as the Dortmund man has been incredibly successful since taking over at the Signal Iduna Park in 2008.
Under his guidance they won successive Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012 and also reached the Champions League final last year.
