Jurgen Klopp has rejected the role of Mexico’s national team boss, according to reports

The former Borussia Dortmund coach has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League side Liverpool.

Klopp was approached to take control of Mexico but he wanted to take a break from management first, according to secretary general of the Mexican Football Federation, Guillermo Cantu.

“We spoke to his representative, but he said he is on a sabbatical and it would not be possible now,” he told Marcaje Personal.

No sooner did Klopp announced he would be leaving Dortmund at the end of last season, a host of Europe’s elite clubs enquired about his services.

Liverpool and Arsenal appear to be the frontrunners as pressure continues to grow on Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger.

Schalke teenager impresses Liverpool scouts

Leroy Sane has earned the merits of a team of scouts from the Merseyside club during his last few performances for Schalke, according to reports.

The 19-year-old has netted in each of Schalke’s last three fixtures, including scoring the only goal of the game during an away victory against Hamburg.

He is seen as the man to replace Julian Draxler who recently completed a summer move to Wolfsburg after Kevin De Bruyne joined Manchester City for £55million.

Tottenham were reported to have had a bid of around £8.5million accepted over the summer, but Sane turned the move down instead agreeing a two-year extension at Schalke.
