When Liverpool appointed Jurgen Klopp as the successor to Brendan Rodgers in 2015, it was seen as an ambitious signing for the club, and it has more than paid off.
Three European finals, their closest shot ever at the Premier League title and one of the best teams on the continent have all been achieved with Klopp at the helm, who has bought the magic of football back to the city of Liverpool and created one of the most positive atmospheres in the country surrounding the team, but it might not last for long.
According to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri, Klopp has been contacted by Italian giants Juventus to fill out their soon to be vacant manager role, with Massimiliano Allegri recently announcing he will be leaving the Old Lady after this season.
Many of Europe’s top managers will be interested and contacted about taking the job in Turin, but for Klopp, the German will be one of the few exceptions to have to turn down the offer due to the project he already has going on at his club.
The former Borussia Dortmund man has created something special at Liverpool, and although his electric team has yet to bear fruit despite hundreds of millions of pounds worth of investment and coming so close to silverware, you can’t help but think that in one or two seasons time Klopp will achieve success for the Reds.
The prospect of managing one of the biggest clubs in the world with some of the best players in the game is an enticing one for most managers, but for Klopp, what he is forging at Liverpool is simply too exciting and promising to simply walk away from.
