5. Manchester United
Louis van Gaal is an inscrutable coach at the best of times, but one thing is fairly certain: given his age, United knew he was not a long-term successor to Sir Alex at Old Trafford. Indeed, van Gaal has stressed on his retirement plans hinging largely on extraneous factors, and with the limited progress United finally seem to be showing (albeit in a rather spluttering fashion) under the Dutchman needs to be capitalised upon. Another ill-fated, bad-tempered regime like that of the unfortunate David Moyes’ would lead to yet more money being thrown at papering over the cracks left following the Scot’s departure rather than fixing the problems at grassroot level. Klopp would, in this instance, potentially be the right man to ensure an era of long-term stability at the Theatre of Dreams.
