Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has denied claims Manchester United have enquired as to his availability and reiterated his desire to remain at the Bundesliga club.
Following the dismissal of David Moyes on Tuesday the highly rated German manager was immediately linked with the role at Old Trafford.
However within hours of United's decision to part ways with the Scot, Klopp was quoted as saying he had little desire to leave Dortmund, citing his "unbreakable relationship" with the club and its supporters as reason enough to remain where he is.
Speaking to the press on Thursday, the Dortmund boss attempted to clear up the situation further, explaining he had not rejected anything from United as there had been no contact from Manchester.
"Everything has been said, very few of it actually be me, but put as if I had said it," Klopp said via Sky Germany and Der Westen. "To reject something when there is no enquiry, it is rather embarrassing for me as a human being.
"I think Manchester United are great, but I am still very happy here, as there about 1000 reasons why you can work here really well."
Klopp has also been linked with replacing Gerardo Martino as Barcelona veer towards a trophyless season, but was quick to dismiss such rumours.
"No one needs to worry," he said in quotes reported on the club's official website last Sunday. "We are all still a bit in love with this club and with the way things are handled here."
With Ryan Giggs, and Class of '92 teammates Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville working alongside him, leading the club through their final four games of the season as interim manager, Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal remains the favourite to take the job on a permanent basis.
Recent reports suggest that the Glazer family will fly into Manchester on Friday to begin planning their move for the Dutchman with chief executive Ed Woodward. Van Gaal will begin official duties with the Dutch national team on 7 May with Woodward understood to be keen to approach the coach before then.
