Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp “never thought about” becoming Germany head coach.
Klopp was linked with the Germany post after their attempt at defending the World Cup crown went up in smoke.
They finished bottom of their group under Joachim Low, beating Sweden but losing to both Mexico and South Korea.
Low announced that he would stay on in the role soon after the disaster, with Klopp one of a few names thrown into the hat to replace him.
He will be staying at Liverpool and overseeing a massive season instead.
“Honestly, I have never thought about it,” he told Bild of the possibility of taking over.
“I am happy at Liverpool – everything else we shall see.”
Asked what he felt about Low’s decision to stay, he said: “I was relaxed as I expected it.
“I think it is absolutely the right decision.”
