Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reveals he turned down Bayern Munich 'a few times' after signing new Anfield deal

LIVERPOOL manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he rejected the chance to take charge of Bayern Munich multiple times.

Klopp, 54, signed a new two-year extension to his deal at Liverpool quashing any rumours of him departing the club until at least 2026.

He told reporters ahead of the side's FA Cup final versus Chelsea about the Bavarian club wanting him.

He said: "Which club should I go to, to have a different situation?

"I could have gone to Bayern a few times, I could have won more titles in my life, pretty sure I would say — I didn't do it.

“I had a contract here (at Liverpool) and that's completely fine."
