  REVEALED: Jurgen Klopp was offered a chance to QUIT Liverpool and return to Borussia Dortmund last year... but told his old boss: 'Are you stupid? Have you been drinking?! I've got a few more years' Jurgen Klopp rejected the offer to quit Liverpool just last year and return to his old job at Borussia Dortmund, according to the club's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.But the German club's CEO admits that scenario was always unlikely in his new book 'Real Love - A life with Borussia Dortmund'.

“ We always play against the wall. We need to do better but it is how it is. I don’t think Man Utd can play like this if the other team doesn’t have the ball as much. “ We had two or three great opportunities to score, we soaked up the pressure well but didn’t create enough ourselves and that’ s the next level.

But Klopp said Manchester United were defensive against them .

"We defended that okay, but we should have played much better football. That's what we expect of ourselves. No criticism or judgement of United, it's just about ourselves."

That success in Slovenia remains their only win in the last 10 away group matches.Liverpool scraped through last season with a 1-0 win over Napoli in their final home game, with three Anfield victories giving them nine points and second place in their group.
