Jurgen Klopp would be the perfect fit for Manchester City

With the news that Jurgen Klopp is to leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season, betting prices for him to take charge of Manchester City, should Manuel Pellegrini be let go, have plummeted.

Many fans have grown tired of Pellegrini at City, with his tactical stubbornness and lack of passion the main issues fans have with the Chilean. The appointment of Klopp would represent a fresh change and, ultimately, a good one. Here's three reasons why:

Style

Klopp likes to play an attractive style of football, one that he once branded 'heavy metal' football, as his teams play with intensity and attacking intent. This would go down a treat with the Citizens faithful.

Personality

Klopp has a huge personality. He is known for making jokes and is as 'trendy' a manager as there is. This would be in drastic contrast to Pellegrini's downtrodden demeanour, and hopefully inject some character in a struggling City side.

Success

The most important of the three. Klopp led Borussia Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2010/11 and 2011/12. This should be a quality that City look for, as the Citizens have toiled to little avail when it comes to retaining either of their two Premier League titles.

He also led Dortmund to the Champions League final, and it's no secret that the City hierarchy are desperate for success in Europe. He has achieved all of this on a considerably smaller budget than he would be afforded at City, and so logically could achieve even more at the Etihad.

Possible negatives

In fact, the only downside to Klopp for City could be that he has had a difficult season this time around. That can hardly be blamed on him though, as Dortmund have consistently had their best players taken from them by arch-rivals Bayern Munich.
