Klopp: I don't want United job

The fans favourite for the full time position at Manchester United has taken himself out of the running. Speaking to the Guardian, Jürgen Klopp spoke kindly about Manchester United but, admirably, spoke of his determination to carry on with Dortmund.

“Manchester United is a great club and I feel very familiar with their wonderful fans. But my commitment to Borussia Dortmund and the people is not breakable.”


The Dortmund manager was seen as the near perfect man to come in and revitalise United’s team, after the club officially announced David Moyes has left the club, at 8.30 this morning. He has the persona and style of play that would endear him to the Old Trafford faithful. The wrongly held opinion of many United fans, myself included, is that Klopp would jump at the chance to take United forward having been constricted by harsh budgeting and seeing his best players leave for fiercest rivals Bayern Munich.

He clearly has the fire to right some wrongs in Germany, or maybe he wants to honour the contract he has signed. Either way with Klopp ruling himself out, it probably leaves the door open for Louis Van Gaal to take over come the end of the World Cup. With Ryan Giggs expected to get his first taste of management, leading Manchester United in the final four games of the season.
