Coach Jurgen Klopp will announce his departure from Borissa Dortmund at the end of this season in a press conference, sources inform.
A German newspaper has reported that Klopp requested Dortmund chief executive Hans Joachim Watzke to release him early from his contract.
Klopp, often regarded as one of the most talented coaches in European football, has been in charge of Dortmund since 2007, winning two Bundesliga titles and guiding the club to the Champions League final in 2013.
Though, this season has been more of a struggle, with Dortmund fighting at the bottom end of the league for much of the season. They currently sit at the 10th position. The club will hold a press conference at 1230 (BST) on Wednesday.
If these rumors are to be believed, Jurgen Klopp is most likely to hop on the Manchester City bandwagon as current City boss Manuel Pellegrini is under huge pressure after a poor run of form that has seen the champions slip from title contenders to not even being certain of Champions League qualification over the last few months.
The derby defeat at Manchester United on Sunday was City’s sixth defeat in eight games. Pellegrini’s fate at Manchester City is far more uncertain than ever, with The Citizens now at risk of missing out on the Champions League. But Klopp may be ready to take the reins at Etihad after a difficult season with Dortmund. Alternatively, the 47 year-old may opt for a year long sabbatical from football before reassessing his options.
