Jurgen Klopp has reassured Liverpool fans that he's committed to Anfield despite the links to the Germany job.
Hansi Flick was sacked as Germany head coach after the country were thrashed 4-1 by Japan in a friendly earlier this month.
As a result, Liverpool's Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Bundesliga-winning boss has been linked with the vacant position.
It's not the first time this has happened, either, with fans calling for Klopp to replace Flick earlier this summer.
However, the German's agent dismissed the rumours, and Klopp himself has now made it more than clear that his loyalty lies with the Reds.
«We’re building Liverpool 2.0 here, we want to attack again and not just look at how much longer can we go on. I have a loyalty to Liverpool,» he said before his side's Europa League clash against LASK, live on talkSPORT 2.
«My heart is here in Liverpool. You can’t just cut out the eight years. I signed a contract here and, as far as I can remember, I wasn’t drugged or tied up and had to sign with my mouth.
»That was a free decision. And that’s why it doesn’t fit."
Ex-Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann, who was also linked with the Tottenham job following Antonio Conte's departure, is reportedly closing in on the job instead.
That's an appointment Klopp backs, despite Nagelsmann only being 36 years old.
«I think Julian is a great solution because he is a great coach. I would be very happy about it – if it happens that way,» Klopp told RTL.
«Age? It doesn’t matter! He had already proven at 28 that he is a fantastic coach. He has eight years of experience.
»Others have that at 45 or 50 – at the highest level. That is not a criteria at all."
