3. Manchester City
At the start of this season Manuel Pellegrini, in a fit of honesty (perhaps a tad more than was needed) admitted his job would be in jeopardy should he fail to add silverware to the Etihad’s trophy cabinet. Given this scenario, and the fact that long-term contract renewals count for about as much as the paper they’re printed on in today’s footballing world, Klopp seems a logical choice as successor. A certain acumen will shortly be required by City in the transfer market, with some key players reaching the age of inevitable decline for athletes. Alternatives to the likes of Yaya Toure will soon be required, either in terms of personnel or a switch in tactics, and with the development of Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang comfortably nestling in his CV, Klopp would be a smart pick for the likes of Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne to perhaps follow in the same trend.
