Klopp denies Mourinho exit claims

Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has denied reports that he leaked information to German newspaper Bild revealing Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is returning to Chelsea next season.

Last Friday, Bild reported Mourinho had told Klopp prior to Real's Champions League semi-final first leg defeat against Dortmund that he will leave the Bernabeu at season's end.

But Klopp reacted angrily to the article, insisting he has no information about Mourinho's future and would not have interfered with the Portuguese manager's privacy.

"It is an absolutely ridiculous story," he told reporters. "I never told anyone that Mourinho is going to Chelsea or another club. I'm not a person who does things like that.

"I heard this story before our game with Fortuna and I have to admit I was very sad and angry because it is completely false. It is a made up story. Mourinho is a colleague and a friend and I would never mess around in such a manner."
