Jurgen Klopp is Manchester United’s number one choice as Moyes replacement

According to The Mirror, Manchester United officials are now unsure as to whether David Moyes is the right man to spend £200million this summer. If the board decide to sack Moyes, Jurgen Klopp is Manchester United’s preferred manager of choice, but it’ll be a struggle getting the spritely German to leave Dortmund.

The 46-year old manager has been at the helm of Dortmund since 2008, having won two Bundesliga titles in that time. His reputation rose meteorically, guiding Dortmund all the way to a Champions League final last season, eventually losing out to Bayern Munich in the dying seconds of the game.

Jurgen Klopp is a very animated manager, but one with an extremely rare talent ; getting the best out of his players. Dortmund were without five or six first-team regulars as they took on Real Madrid a week or so ago, and his side came within the inch of the post away from overturning a 3-0 deficit against Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

He has secured signatures like Robert Lewandowski, Marco Reus, Ilkay Gundogan and Mats Hummels, meaning he’s very good at dealing in the transfer market, too. This is where United may have a chance of signing him, because Dortmund have often been guilty of losing their best players to local rivals Bayern Munich, and eventually this must take its toll and become very frustrating for the Dortmund manager.

As we all know a massive squad overhaul is needed in the summer, and that job just gets even bigger if the board do decide to replace David Moyes. Jurgen Klopp would be my #1 target in terms of a replacement though. My only concern is that Barcelona will probably be looking for a new manager in the summer, and I’m fairly certain he’ll be quite high on their list.

  1. How short the memory must be of these so called supporters calling for ‘ Moyes out’.I have supported United when they were winning nothing, been relegated, ‘Doc’ not sacked over relegation. Sir Alex was there over 2 years and , so it seems true, was one game away from been sacked. If memory serves me right, Mark Robins scored the winner in that F.A. cup tie, and as they say, the rest is history. We ended up having, not just the best United manager, but the best premiership manager. Sir Alex was given the time, help and especially the support of the true fans, to bring glory to the club. Those so called supporters, and rag press, not worth mentioning their names, have built up a pressure on a manager that should be getting total support, not been stabbed in the back.
    Alas, United still have a few players that have well gone by their best before date, and these should have been cleared out last year, at least. The real United supporter is Loyal, True, and will always follow, United. The so called ‘Salmon and Prawn ‘ supporter is none of these.
    This time last year, Brendan Rodgers was in the same boat. No one, bar the sun( , was looking to cause unrest or to get rid of him. Look what he has done since. The True, Loyal Red will give the same support and loyalty to our manager, David Moyes.
    I’m a True, Loyal, and sincere United fan. And always will be.

    • Some of your points are true and valid.
      However, I’d like to know what basis, or signs you base this belief on that the right man is in the job.
      Comparisons with Ferguson cannot be made, that man rebuilt the club from scratch, had a winning record in management and as proved last year, knew how to get the best out of SOME average players.
      I urge you to read this, from someone who has seen far more of Moyes than any of us have….
