    Dortmund needs Klopp for next season. The club is already in an unstable phase due to their performances this season and Klopp leaving would only add fuel to the fire of unstability.

    Arsenal! Please.

    Hopefully the core will remain and the new coach can rebuild the team around Reus, Hummels, Gündogan

    The Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke sounds disappointed to be losing his man...
  • 3 hours ago
    BVB boss Watzke starts:

    "We had some talks recently on the initiative of Jürgen and then made the joint decision that after seven years of incredible success will be over at the end of the season.

    We have a relationship that is built on trust and friendship. Therefore, it is naturally a difficult situation. Jürgen, will always have eternal gratitude from Borussia Dortmund."

    Goal Germany's Dortmund correspondent Stefan Doring joins us now, and there's plenty to chew over after the announcement that Jurgen Klopp will be leaving the club this summer.

    Stefan, this was largely to be expected wasn't it? A natural parting way for club and coach?

    Quotes coming in from the man himself...
  • 3 hours ago
    "I feel that the moment that I'm not the perfect coach for this extraordinary club would eventually come. In the last few days and weeks I was not sure that I'm the right person. Therefore, I felt it my duty to myself and Aki Watzke to leave my position."

    Klopp:

    I am sure that the decision is absolutely right. This team deserves to have the absolutely one hundred percent right coach.

    It's not that I am tired. I have no contact to another club, either in England or elsewhere. But I do not intend to put in a sabbatical year. I wanted to announce today so that everyone everyone at the club can plan and adjust."

    BVB manager Michael Zorc:

    "You have given me and the club a lot of energy. I think all BVB employees, especially of course our team should give you the goodbye that you have earned. "

    Klopp:

    "I believe that Borussia Dortmund needs a change. A major problem certainly is that as long as I'm here, we are always considering the successes of the past."

    Klopp insists it was the right time to go and that he won't be taking a break from football. Where will his next port of call be?

    Klopp still hasn't told his Dortmund players he is leaving!

    "It will take place right now," he says.

    Klopp:

    "Now we will bundle all our resources for the last games. Now it's really about this club having the opportunity and reaching its great potential. In my head it is the right moment to make a change."

    I would love to see him at Real next season.

    The bad thing for both parties is Klopp will have to re-integrate himself into a new team environment all over again unless he's gunning for a national team role. Dortmund will have to change tactics and gameplans as things will not be the same and Reus, Hummels, Gundogan are surely going to leave

    Klopp:

    "The club is greater than all of us, he will always be greater than all of us. I am grateful that I could be a part of it."

    Watzke:

    "There is no time schedule about Klopp's replacement. We will take our time."

    So Klopp is a free man in the summer and by the sound of it he will be looking for employment. Who needs Klopp and where will he be the best fit?

    What are the chances? The bookmakers have quickly installed Klopp as favourite to become the next Manchester City manager.

    Klopp: The club is always greater than all of us. I am grateful that I could be a part of it.

    Quite sad to see him go as I started following Dortmund because of Klopp. As a Arsenal fan as well, I can only hope they approach him since he would fit in quite well there.
  • 2 hours ago
    In summary Klopp felt he'd given all he could and wasn't the man to take the club forward. He also put himself in the shop window by stating he doesn't want to take a sabbatical year, meaning there will be plenty of interested parties this summer.

    Stefan, is this the right move at the right time for all concerned?
  • 2 hours ago
    Stefan Doring

    Yes because Dortmund
    has several tactical problem in the way they play football.
    It’s a problem for
    the coach and Klopp isn’t able to make it better.

    So Klopp has been the route of Dortmund's problems?

    Stefan Doring

    It’s been a very bad season and all goals will be missed. There will be no European football next season so it’s the perfect time to start a new campaign with a new coach. For Klopp it’s a good time to leave because of the success he had and the legacy he created.

    So where next for Jurgen Klopp?

    Stefan Doring
    I could imagine he will move to England as he has always said the Premier League interests him. We do not know what will happen with Pellegrini at Manchester City but it doesn't look good for him. With Klopp now available they are likely to be interested and that could make their mind up over Pellegrini.
