Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has debunked transfer links about the vacant managerial job at Italian champions Juventus.
In his pre-match press conference ahead of the Champions League final, Klopp told reporters that he likes and follows the Italian Serie A but his focus is to stay at Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp has been linked with the Juventus managerial job alongside other leading managers in world football.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino, French World Cup winning manager Didier Deschamps and Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri have all been linked with the Juventus job.
Juventus is without a manager following the exit of Maximiliano Allegri at the end of the Italian top flight football season.

His exit from the club was announced earlier this month.
Italian tactician Allegri won five successive Italian Serie A titles during his four-year spell at the club in addition to leading the Old Lady to two Champions League finals.
Allegri led Juventus to the 2015 Champions League final before they were beaten 3-1 by a superior Barcelona side.
Juventus reached a second Champions League final in three seasons under the guidance of the aforementioned Allegri but the result remained the same after Juventus were beaten 4-1 by Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid.
