Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has labelled talk of him becoming the new Juventus manager as "bulls***."

The Italian Serie A champions are on the look-out for a new manager after the recent resignation of Massimiliano Allegri.

However, the Liverpool boss today swiftly dismissed rumours linking him with the role.

"Yes, of course Serie A is very attractive as a championship. There is nothing true, however, in the rumours that would tie me to Juventus," he said.

"I hear some journalists talking about it but it's bulls**t. Italy is beautiful, I do not know the atmosphere of the games, however, because I have seen the matches only on television.

"Sometimes even without sound because I am only interested in the game and other aspects. Certainly Serie A is an attractive league."
