Klopp: "I can revolutionize football"
Confident: Jurgen Klopp seems to think he can revolutionize the World of football
About a year ago, Jurgen Klopp's Dortmund were licking their wounds after being put to the sword by Jupp Heynckes' Bayern Munich. It was a hard day for Dortmund and their manager, made even harder by the fact that they were beaten at the final hurdle by their biggest rivals.
Ever since, BVB have found themselves on a slight decline after losing fan favorite Lewandowski and their very own home grown talent Mario Gotze. A player hotly tipped to become one of the World's best in the final months of his Dortmund career.
Now, loyal manager Jurgen Klopp has to put Dortmund back where they were and keep them there if he is to keep his job. Despite being put under enormous pressure he is keeping a cool head and has made a bold and slightly arrogant statement, claiming he can and will be the one to revolutionize Dortmund and football.
Here is the Dortmund manager speaking after he was asked the question; "Do you really think you can bring Dormtund back to the lofty heights of 2013? Can you keep them there?"
"I know I am a good manager. In fact I am currently one of the best in the World. I know that, you know that. Can you honestly say that statement is not true? I can't. I have done this before. You know...Take Dortmund to the top. I can do it again, and I will.
My job may currently seem a little unstable but it's not. Yes, the owners want success and so do I. We are working on this. The owners of this club love their football, and they know their football. Unlike the types of chairmen in England or Spain they can acknowledge that we have had to make a lot of sacrifices. They understand that losing players like Lewandowski and Gotze has been a tough blow to the clubs chances, and that is why I will keep my job. They understand.
This time round will be different. I am going to take football by storm and revolutionize it because I know I can. I have a very simple plan to take Dortmund to the top of the footballing World and this plan will change football for the better, I can assure you."
For obvious reasons, Klopp made no obligation as to what his "Simple plan" was. So, really we have no idea whether he has a plan and is just playing mind games with other clubs, or whether he genuinely has come up with a plan to make Dortmund the best in football.
