Cape Town - Despite another loss in the Bundesliga, coach Jurgen Klopp insists he will not quit Borussia Dortmund this season.
On Sunday, Klopp's side lost their eighth Bundesliga match of the season when after suffering their Eintracht Frankfurt eased passed Dortmund 2-0 at home.
Klopp is refusing to give up hope that he can turn things around.
"I understand that journalists have those thoughts, but there is no such trend. I see myself as responsible." said Klopp to Sky Sports.
"If it is only about luck and a change of coach can bring that, you only have to call me up and I will step aside.
"But it is not so simple. As long as nobody comes and says to me, 'we have someone who does it better', then I cannot go.
"I won't stand in the way, but I cannot go before there is a better solution, the responsibility is great and I can accept it."
Dortmund are last placed in the Bundesliga title and are 22 points adrift of Bayern Munich.
Dortmund's season looks like this:
Played 13, won 3, drawn 2, lost 8, goals scored 14, goals conceded 21, points 11.
