Even a few days after the announcement, I still had tears in my eyes thinking about Kloppo leaving us, but I genuinely believe him and his decision.

I saw yesterday that he said he could take a year off, but do you guys have any guesses where he will go? I don't see any of the PL managers in danger, no Arsenal, no United, no City, no Chelsea, maybe Liverpool, but even that is a far reach, because I think Rodgers is doing a great job. I don't see Madrid, Barca, or Atletico. I don't see PSG. Kloppo has mentioned that he, and all good coaches must watch Sacchi, so if I had to guess that if next year he was going anywhere, it would be Milan.

On our note, I am extremely excited to see the tactician Tüchel join us. I'm excited to see how he adapts this team into a top Bundesliga team again.
Congrats on getting Tuchel

Probably the most sensible choice
Congratulation to Tuchel. Good choice
The team really showing they're prepared to wave Klopp goodbye in the best possible way. This is probably the best game of the season so far. Micki was outstanding!

Definitely! It's almost a shame to have seen the team playing so nicely and with cohesion today. Where were these guys the rest of the season?

I really hope Auba goes nowhere
Auba should've had a brace here. He was behind the ball when the pass was played. Could've been 3-0 already!
Was wondering something about Tüchel, seeing as he could be our next coach. Why did he leave Mainz?
I just know Tuchel wanted to leave Mainz with mutual consent, but they held him to his contract so he resigned, only able to be signed freely by other clubs right about this time in 2015. No idea why though.
Aha. Curious.
Thanks for the answer buddy

this is all i found on the topic :P
Micki! Who'd have thunk?! :D

The initial shock is starting to settle a bit and clearer thoughts are coming back slowly... as heart breaking as it is to see the person Klopp moving on, I believe that he made the correct and very selfless choice to set the club up for a better future.

The new coach needs to be different! It cannot be a Klopp 2.0, because nobody can imitate Klopp better than Klopp himself. The next coach will almost undoubtedly be less charismatic, less popular amongst the fan base, and will certainly not be able to repeat the international prestige that Klopp created for himself and thereby the club. But the new coach doesn't need to do any of that, the club stands on its on two feet again with a larger fan base than ever, international recognition, and more sponsoring contracts than ever in history. The new coach needs to do one thing and one thing alone: Bring back competitive success.

For me there is only one option right now and he's been mentioned here before. Thomas Tuchel; a tactical genius, some call him the German Pep Guardiola. His style of play is extremely flexible and based upon the opponent... it was exciting to watch him coach Mainz because you never knew what he would have up his sleeve and he would bring that same kind of excitement back into our game. He doesn't have Klopp's charm and you won't be rolling on the ground by his witty one liners, but in tactical and motivational regards, he doesn't stand short in anyway. Google the "Tuchel Tabelle" and you will see that during his 5 years at Mainz, he was the coach to gain the most points right after the big 4 (Bayern, Dortmund, Schalke, Leverkusen) and he accomplished all of that with a very limited budget and sub-par training facilities. Imagine what he could do at a club like ours!

As much as it breaks my heart to see Klopp move on, for the future of the club a Tuchel signing is the right next step. It seems a done deal and I look forward to the new season under his lead. I hope he's given enough time and freedom to unfold his style and I am certain we will be enjoying many of great Champion's League nights again in the near future.

I completely agree that Tuchel is the ideal candidate for the job. I think Kloppo agrees with that too, being the life-long Mainz player/fan/coach he is. There are several very good and not quite famous coaches in Germany though. That's one of the things I love about the BuLi: it has a lot of quality players and coaches, still hidden from the worldwide media. For non-German followers of German football, it's up to themselves to discover it.

The other current BuLi coach I'd love to see replace Kloppo would be Lucien Favre. He's made Gladbach much stronger and has a great footballing philosophy too.
i agree tuchel should be next but i think they next coach needs to focus on the youth academy. When bvb 1st took off in 09 it was because of sahin, grossktuetz, bender, schmeltzer with the young talents of hummels and barrios. Transfer market is defiantly needed but not our strong point. I think in order for bvb to contend for the title, we need to look and develop our youth academy a little more.
Choosing the right coach is extremely important.
However, a very big issue in my opinion that is less talked over is that we need to find a way to keep our performing players, and if that's impossible then we definitely need to improve our market decisions. Look at Mikhi, Immobile, Ramos. These are not successful purchases by any measure, especially considering how costly they all were.
Favre would have been interesting too, but he's a little too defensive minded for my liking. I think he will run into the same issues as Klopp did when teams will start bunkering up against Gladbach next year. Markus Weinzierl would have been another interesting option, but he just renewed his contract with Augsburg.

The only two other options that I find remotely realistic are Paulo Sousa from Basel... doing a great job there and has a Dortmund past. The even more interesting option would be Frank de Boer from Ajax; close friend to Klopp, speaks German, internationally recognized, and has good connection to the Dutch and Belgian markets which have presumably some of the best talents coming up right now.

But honestly, I think so highly about Tuchel that any other choice but him would be a slight let down. Tuchel is a tactical genius!

This stings. Anyone else feel a bit of betrayal?

I don't for a second believe the "I'm not the right person for the job anymore" bullshit. After 6 fantastic seasons, including 4 straight top-two finishes, all it takes is one bad season and before it's even over the rats abandon ship.

Danke Herr Klopp, but there's nothing that will ever convince me that deciding to leave in the middle of our lowest point in 7 years is anything other than giving up. What does that say to the players that are considering their future? No doubt we'll see him in a Champions League club next season. Probably with Hummels or one of the others by his side. Meanwhile we'll be fighting it out with the likes of mighty Augsburg for the scraps of a EL spot. Maybe I'm just upset, but I feel betrayed. I can't see this any other way.

The s**t just keeps piling on this season.
http://www.goal.com/en-gb/news/2892/transfer-zone/2015/04/15/10790492/manchester-city-must-go-for-klopp-and-he-should-bring-reus

This. This is why I feel betrayed. As if the f***ing retards in the press needed any more fuel.
Absolutely not. I think there is no doubt that Klopp means what he says.

Let's face it, all the star players leaving, it ruined us. Even Klopp the almighty realized he can't contribute anymore. There's very little you can do if the players who were integral to why you were so successful, leave.

We were outdone by the greed and short sightedness of the Sahins, Kagawas and Goetzes.
City said they are not looking to sign Klopp. They will try to lure Guardiola and if not then maybe Ancelotti if RM sacks him. I don't really know where Klopp will go tbh. I'm thinking spurs for some reason but that is just me.
In time I will get over myself and be able to look at all that's happened in the past 7 years and realize how lucky I am to be a fan of this club. Klopp will live on as a legend. But right now I'm not ready.

As Marko says, it looks like all signs point to Tuchel. I must have been living under a rock because I had no idea that he left Mainz at the end of last season. I think he'd be a perfect fit. With the right moves this summer, there's no reason we can't be back in the CL picture in two years.
Klopp has done MORE than enough in these past few years to prove he's a very, very sincere and genuine man who would never lie to the people/club he loves.

When he says he doesn't feel like the ideal coach for BvB anymore, it's because he doesn't feel like the ideal coach for BvB anymore.

I watched the press conference and both Klopp and Watzke seem genuinely devastated that it has come to this.

I don't doubt that Klopp feels he is no longer the best choice but I suspect there is more back story that we haven't yet heard. I wonder if he's grown tired of having his star players poached every season and feels that he cannot develop the club any further while this continues.
Thank you, Jürgen Klopp! Thank you for leading the club of our hearts through some of the most successful years in our clubs history. You came in at a time when no one could even imagine ever playing Champions League soccer again... At the brink of bankruptcy and a, what seemed at the time, forever ongoing spell of competitive mediocrity and lackluster performances, you sparked this club back to life and gave it what this awesome city of Dortmund, with the best fans and best stadium in the world deserve: success and recognition!

Your infectious energy will never be forgotten! Despite this current poor season, we will never forget where we were at before you came along and we will never forget where you got us to in your 7 years with us. I will miss watching your press conferences, your energetic celebrations after every goal, you pumping your fist in front of our Yellow Wall thanking us fans for the support, and celebrating titles at the Borsigplatz. You deserved a better finish to your time with us!

I hope that the team pulls itself together for this last stretch of the season and thanks you for all you've done by winning the DFB Pokal! I hope that you get the deserved goodbye riding the parade wagon through our Borisgplatz raising one last trophy!

Thank you for everything Kloppo!
