Klopp breaks silence on Solskjaer’s Man Utd sacking and reveals he hasn’t thought about state of rivals for a ‘second’
JURGEN KLOPP has broken his silence on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being sacked by Manchester United, saying he hasn't thought about it for even a 'second'.
Solskjaer was sacked just hours later following crisis talks, with Michael Carrick replacing him at Old Trafford on an interim basis.
Steve Bruce, Laurent Blanc and Ralf Rangnick are being lined up to replace Carrick - also on an interim basis - until the end of the season, before making a move for Mauricio Pochettino or Zinedine Zidane in the summer.
But ruthless Klopp has revealed he hasn't given United's managerial shambles a moment's notice.
When asked for his take, a bemused Klopp laughed before saying: "What do I have to do with that?
"Sorry, I'm really not prepared for that question.
“I didn’t think about United for a second."

Kop boss Klopp continued: "I don't think of the impact the manager has, should have or will ever have since six years ago, when I had to.
"Sorry it's the wrong question. I don't have an answer for that."
Man Utd kick off their new era under Carrick on Tuesday night in the Champions League against Villarreal.
And the interim chief sensationally dropped Bruno Fernandes in favour of Donny van de Beek - with fans thrilled.
Meanwhile, the shambolic chase for a new manager at Man Utd is expected to rage on after missing out on top target Antonio Conte to Tottenham.
