- 3 hours agoHopefully the core will remain and the new coach can rebuild the team around Reus, Hummels, Gündogan
- 3 hours agoThe Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke sounds disappointed to be losing his man...
- 3 hours agoBVB 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."
- 3 hours agoGoal 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.
- 3 hours agoStefan, this was largely to be expected wasn't it? A natural parting way for club and coach?
- 3 hours agoQuotes 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."
- 3 hours agoKlopp:
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."
- 3 hours agoBVB 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. "
- 3 hours agoKlopp:
"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."
- 2 hours agoKlopp 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?
- 2 hours agoKlopp still hasn't told his Dortmund players he is leaving!
"It will take place right now," he says.
- 2 hours agoKlopp:
"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."
- 2 hours agoI would love to see him at Real next season.
- 2 hours agoThe 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
- 2 hours agoKlopp:
"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."
- 2 hours agoWatzke:
"There is no time schedule about Klopp's replacement. We will take our time."
- 2 hours agoSo 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?
- 2 hours agoWhat are the chances? The bookmakers have quickly installed Klopp as favourite to become the next Manchester City manager.
- 2 hours agoKlopp: The club is always greater than all of us. I am grateful that I could be a part of it.
- 2 hours agoKlopp: In my head it is the right moment to make a change.
- 2 hours agoKlopp: I do not intend to put in a sabbatical year.
- 2 hours agoQuite 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 agoIn 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.
- 2 hours agoJoining us now is Goal Germany's Dortmund correspondent Stefan Doring.
- 2 hours agoStefan, is this the right move at the right time for all concerned?
- 2 hours agoStefan DoringYes 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.
- 2 hours agoSo Klopp has been the route of Dortmund's problems?
- 2 hours agoStefan DoringIt’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.
- 2 hours agoSo where next for Jurgen Klopp?
- 2 hours agoStefan DoringI 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.
