5 reasons why Jurgen Klopp will not be Manchester United's next manager

J├╝rgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp is the choice of many fans to replace David Moyes as the new Manchester United manager.

The Borussia Dortmund manager has found himself linked to many of the top job's in the world following his success with the German side. He has turned Dortmund into one of the most formidable side's in Europe despite not having a vast budget compared to Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Manchester City etc.

It is clear to see why he is the choice of many Manchester United fans. His team play exciting, attacking football and who wouldn't want to see that type of play week in week out.

When Jurgen Klopp took over from Thomas Doll in 2008, Dortmund has just finished 13th in the Bundesliga. In just three years he guided them to the title and retained it in 2012. A Champions League final last year showed that the club were now back amongst Europe's elite.

However here are five reasons why Jurgen Klopp will not be replacing David Moyes:

1) He has already stated he has no interest in the job.

Managers often rule themselves out of jobs when their names are linked but it doesn't always mean that they're not interested. These statements are often made with the idea to keep their current club happy, he obviously isn't going to openly say he want to leave Borussia Dortmund. Things could change if there is an approach but he does seem content at Dortmund. He said his commitment to Dortmund is unbreakable.

2) He has an unfinished job at Borussia Dortmund.

Klopp delivered back-to-back Bundesliga's for Dortmund but since Bayern Munich have gone from strength to strength and now look unstoppable in Germany. Klopp will want to regain that title once more, and also try and win the Champions League for the club for the first time since 1997. He has a huge challenge on his hands now to try and overcome Pep Guardiola's side and it is a challenge he will relish.

3) The Borussia Dortmund fans.

The Westfalenstadion is the home stadium of Borussia Dortmund and the 80,645 capacity stadium creates one of if not the greatest atmosphere at a football match in the world. The club attracts the highest average attendance in the world and the fans are the most passionate you are ever likely to see. Old Trafford is a big stadium, but one that lacks any real atmosphere. Klopp would find it incredibly hard to leave those fans behind.

 

4) Klopp had to rebuild Borussia Dormtund after a lowly finish and therefore wouldn't want to do that again.

Manchester United need a good few years to rebuild their squad before they can start challenging with Europe's best again. They are in a similar position to the one Dortmund were in back in 2008. They had just finished 13th in the Bundesliga and Klopp had to turn the club around which he did. He is now reaping the rewards and getting the best out of the squad. It wouldn't be right to leave to join Manchester United and have to do a similar job all over again.

5) Barcelona could come calling.

The future of Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino is unclear as they look set to miss out on a trophy this season. Knocked out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid, runner-up in the Copa Del Rey and four points behind Atletico Madrid in La Liga with just four games to go. The Catalan giants could make a change in the summer and Klopp will be a favourable choice. With news that their transfer ban could be lifted there is a chance for them to invest in the summer. It is certainly a better proposition for Klopp if he could be convinced.
