Borussia Dortmund head coach Jurgen Klopp says he has yet to speak to any potential clubs, as he prepares for an emotional farewell at the Westfalenstadion.

Klopp will bring down the curtain on his time in charge of Dortmund with a clash with Werder Bremen, with both sides still having hopes of qualifying for the Europa League next season.

I have not spoken to any club and I am not going to think about it until I am not here.

And 47-year-old Klopp says his full attention is on the job in hand, with a number of players also potentially saying goodbye to the Bundesliga club.

He told reporters: “I have not spoken to any club and I am not going to think about it until I am not here.”

Germany centre-back Mats Hummels is expected to return from injury and could make his final appearance for Dortmund, while midfielder Ilkay Gundogan will definitely say goodbye to the BVB faithful, having turned down the offer of a new contract.

Veteran Sebastian Kehl will also bow out as he heads into retirement, while goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller is expected to return after a month out to replace Mitchell Langerak.

Dortmund are 1.25 to win the game, with Bremen 10.00, while the draw can be backed at 6.50.

Meanwhile, Klopp says both sides will be desperate to impress, with the pair both requiring a victory to have any chance of overhauling Augsburg for sixth place in the table.

He added: “Both teams have a huge opportunity here. For months now, Europa League qualification has been our best-case scenario.

“We do not feel any pressure, we see it as a great opportunity.”
