DORTMUND, Germany (AP) - Outgoing Borussia Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp has ended speculation about his immediate future and says he will take a break for now.

Klopp says that after “seven years of intense and emotional years of ‘real love’ I find it sensible to sort out the countless memories” before taking up a new coaching job “fresh and highly motivated.”

The charismatic coach did not specify how long he planned to stay away, saying the break would be “until further notice.”

In his last match in charge, Dortmund lost the German Cup final to Wolfsburg 3-1 on Saturday.

Klopp won the Bundesliga title in 2011 and the domestic double in 2012, and played the 2013 Champions League final when Dortmund lost to Bayern Munich.
