Jurgen Klopp has ruled himself out of the running to become the next manager of the German national team after Joachim Low announced he will step down as Germany boss after the Euros.
Low, who took the job in 2006 and led Germany to the 2014 World Cup title and has a contract until 2022, is the current longest serving national team coach but is ending his deal a year early.
Klopp has three years to run on his current deal at Liverpool and said he had always honoured his contract in his previous roles at Mainz 05 and Borussia Dortmund.

"Will I be available for the German national team job in the summer? No," Klopp told reporters ahead of the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie against RB Leipzig.
Low did an incredible job for so many years, the longest servant we had in Germany.
"I understand he wants to have this highlight at the European Championship. I have a job. Somebody else will do the job and with the amount of really good German managers at the moment, the German FA will find a good solution."
