Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is planning to take a six-month break from management before returning to a new club. The 47-yar old have been a legend at Dortmund as he have taken Dortmund forward in many ways during his seven-year spell at Signal Iduna Park.
The coach also admitted that he can see himself managing Bayern Munich some day. Klopp will manage his final game at Dortmund during DFB-Pokal final next Sunday. The manager is keen to finish on a high by winning the German Cup.
Dortmund fans have a sensational send-off to Jurgen Klopp by forming “Yellow Wall” that read “Danke, Kloppo” (Thank you, Klopp).
Asked if he could imagine himself coaching Bayern, Klopp said: ‘Yeah. I am a football coach. I want to work for a while, but at the moment it is difficult.’
When asked about the vacant Real Madrid position who prefer managers speaking Spanish, he said: “‘I can [speak] almost every German dialect, so I can learn Spanish – if I have to.’
Jurgen Klopp gave a heart felt message to Dortmund fans who gave him so much to remember theough a pre-recorded video clip which said: ‘Our seven years of being together ends next week,’ Klopp said via a big screen inside the stadium. ‘We are together for the last time in this stadium, which has become my home.
‘My coaching team and I were fortunate enough to come here in 2008 and if ever there was a win-win situation in football then this has been it. I take with me a bag full of the most positive memories and I hope you are too.’
Jurgen Klopp has been heavily linked to a move to Anfield next season but a six-month break would mean Liverpool need to continue with Brendan Rodgers next season.
