We all love Dortmund. Even those that claim to hate the Borrusia side have a soft spot for Klopp’s men because they play an exciting brand of football and have arguably the best fan base in all of sports. Klopp has been the spearhead of the club’s meteoric rise and continued success in the club’s domestic and continental campaigns. Jurgen Klopp is somewhat of a polarizing figure. He is adored by and players of the club but is well known for his rants and tirades at officials and opposing coaches. Dortmund is well-known as somewhat of a “feeder system” for German giants, Bayern Munich, and I think losing almost every world class player has taken a toll on Klopp. He says, “I always said in that moment where I believe I am not the perfect coach anymore for this extraordinary club I will say so. I really think the decision is the right one. This club deserves to be coached from the 100% right manager.”
This begs the questions, where will Klopp end up? Manchester City seems like the logical choice. Klopp has been rumored a Premier League manager for years now and with City’s lack of success this season, Manuel Pellegrini finds himself on the managerial hot seat. Could Klopp be successful at City, in what seems to be the exact opposite type of club that Dortmund is? I’m sad to see him go and I am not sure if there is another manger better suited for the Dortmund job. Only time will tell but it is safe to say that Klopp will find himself in the Premier League next year.
