Klopp drops hint over his future

Former BVB Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has given the biggest hint yet where his next job as a football manager will be, indicating it may not be at a so-called big club.

Klopp resigned from his post at Signal Iduna Park at the end of last season after a poor campaign that saw them finish in a lowly seventh place.

However, he remains a popular figure at the club having guided them to two Bundesliga titles, a DFB-Pokal crown and a Champions League final in his seven years with Die Borussen.

The German mentor reportedly turned down the chance to take charge of Ligue 1 club Marseille during the off-season and revealed he was looking for the right project not just a job at a big club.

"It doesn't have to be an absolute top club, there are other good projects that are exciting, who need help," the 48-year-old told journalists at the International Radio Exhibition in Berlin.

"I stay informed, read and meet a lot of people – there are ordinary little things that are great fun. I miss nothing currently.

"I don't know where I'll be heading to but, right now, that's not important for me because I know that if I will have the right feeling it will be a wonderful next chapter.

"You will see what happens and I find it exciting right now not knowing what will happen next.

"Most of the time in life, the next day is pre-planned. In my case, the next year is completely unplanned. I don't know when to continue, where to continue but I know that I will continue."
