What Next For Jurgen Klopp?

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 15 April 2015, 16:18

Jurgen KloppThe football world was left stunned on Wednesday after Jurgen Klopp dropped the bombshell that he will be leaving Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season. In the immediate aftermath of the shock news, the media speculated that the popular 47-year-old was set to follow in the footsteps of Pep Guardiola and take a year-long sabbatical, something which he has since rubbished.

What is concrete, is that Klopp will have no shortage of options for in instant return to the dugout. The charismatic and engaging German has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, and this outcome now appears increasingly likely this summer. Klopp has instantly been installed as the odds-on favourite in the Next Manchester City Manager Market, with the defending Premier League champions widely expected to ditch boss Manuel Pellegrini; either prior to, or at the end of the campaign.

If Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti (harshly) fails to retain the Champions League or win La Liga for the first time, then Los Blancos could opt to change direction, and who knows, Klopp could jet off to the Spanish capital.

Arsenal and Klopp would be gaining more attention if it wasn't for the club's stunning winning run of late. The Gunners are currently enjoying an eight game winning streak (in all competitions), which has propelled them up to 2nd in the table, while they remain the favourites to retain the FA Cup Final. With this in mind, it's highly unlikely that Arsene Wenger will leave at the end of the season, although that won't stop a small pocket of supporters craving a change in the dugout.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are unlikely to dispense of Luis Enrique, as the Catalan club are currently on course for a treble. However, if Enrique ends the campaign empty handed, then things could chance. Elsewhere, French juggernauts PSG could be an option, while rumours are rife that Rafa Benitez is set to leave Napoli in the summer.
