Jurgen Klopp open to managing in the Premier League

Published 1 Comments

Jurgen Klopp has alerted the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal after admitting he would like to manage in the Premier League one day.

The Borussia Dortmund manager hit the headlines earlier this month after it was claimed that officials at the Westfalenstadion believe that he will leave for Old Trafford when his current contract expires in 2018.

England calling

Klopp admitted that he would like to manage in England at some point in his career, but is not thinking about leaving Borussia Dortmund just yet.

"Of course one day I'd perhaps like to work in England, but that doesn't mean I think about it," he is quoted as telling The Sun. "I think about solving Borussia's problems. I don't think about my future."

Manchester bound

Louis van Gaal has only just taken charge at Manchester United, but the report in the Evening Standard claimed that by 2018, the Red Devils would be looking to make a long-term appointment.

Klopp would certainly meet the required credentials to manage Manchester United. The 47-year-old has won the Bundesliga twice on a shoe string budget at Borussia Dortmund and has gathered a cult following around Europe as a result.

Wenger replacement

However, Arsenal could be ready to rival Manchester United by 2018 with Arsene Wenger potentially looking at retirement in the next four years. At 64-years-old, it will soon be time to start thinking about an Arsenal with Wenger in charge.

Such a prospect is unimaginable to the Gunners, such is Wenger's influence over the club, but Klopp, who has implemented similar values to that of Arsenal at Borussia Dortmund, could be the man to replace him.
