Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp shocked the football world when he announced he would leave the German club at the end of the season.
The news stunned fans in countries all over the world, but what could happen in the future may be even more surprising.
Bring Klopp back
When Klopp leaves the Signal Iduna Park, pragmatic FC Mainz coach Thomas Tuchel will take the reigns in Dortmund. Klopp, despite having not yet left Dortmund, is already being linked with a move back to BVB, by non other than sporting director Michael Zorc.
In a recent report by beIN SPORTS, Dortmund's sporting director responded with the words: "Why not?" when asked about a possible return for Jurgen Klopp sometime in the future.
"Maybe not in the immediate future, but Jurgen's still a pretty young coach so why should't he come back to Dortmund? There's nothing to say he won't."
Klopp has spent a total seven year spell at the helm of Dortmund, winning two Bundesliga titles, a Deutscher Pokal crown and guiding his team into the 2013 Champions League final also. He has a chance to double his Deutscher Pokal medals later this year, with a place in the final booked alongside VFL Wolfsburg.
Dortmund, currently in 9th in the Bundesliga, are looking to mount a late Europa-League push this season. The campaign is, however, set to mark the first time the club have finished outside of the Champions League places in half a decade.
A mass exodus is expected in the summer, with big name players like Marco Reus and Matts Hummels inked with a move away. Tuchel may be taking over a depleted squad by the time he is appointed, but he'll be hoping he can get Dortmund back to title contenders in the coming years.
Could Klopp ever return to Dortmund? How will Thomas Tuchel get on at the Westfalenstadion? Let us know in the comments!
