Ballspielverein Borussia 09 e.V. Dortmund has announced head coach Jürgen Klopp is free to leave the team at the end of the present term. Klopp took the team in 2008 replacing Thomas Doll who had a rather short tenure of little over 12 months.
Borussia Dortmund this Wednesday granted Jürgen Klopp’s request to prematurely release him from his current contract, which was set to run until 30 June 2018. At the behest of the head coach, an agreement was reached whereby Klopp will leave his position at the club at the end of the 2014/2015 campaign. BVB
As an Arsenal fan I have always said I would like Klopp to replace Monsieur Wenger who should leave the Emirates Stadium soon, regardless of the current acceptable performance of the team in the Barclays Premier League™. Nevertheless, it is not certain Klopp is interested in taking over.
Where’s Klopp future then?
Today’s announcement is almost for sure the product of a well conducted agreement reaching its final stages. It appears Klopp has already reached an understanding with a top European club, but the details remain private. Eurosport considers the German coach has better chances of joining Manchester City rather than any other British side.
The always well-intentioned users of Wikipedia however have changed Klopp’s profile letting people know he is currently the manager of Manchester United.
The Mirror (not always a reliable source) names Anfield as one of Klopp’s possible destinations at the end of the season.
What we do now is his managerial skills and witty statements when facing the media would be much appreciated in several top clubs across Europe.
