“When I left Dortmund 9 years ago, the club I wnated to join was Manchester United I never knew I will coach Liverpool. But I was shocked about what happened. It has been a secret but it’s time for the fans to know”-Why Jurgen Klopp didn’t jend up coaching Manchester United before joining Liverpool despite admitting he made a very big mistake.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s impending departure from the club at the end of the season has sent shockwaves through the football world. After nearly eight successful years at Anfield, Klopp cited a depletion of energy as his reason for stepping down. Despite his departure, Klopp’s legacy at Liverpool is secure, with his tenure marked by significant achievements, including the club’s sixth Champions League triumph in 2019 and their first Premier League title a year later.


Interestingly, Klopp’s path could have taken a different turn back in 2013 when he was approached by Manchester United’s legendary manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, to succeed him at Old Trafford. However, Klopp declined the offer, citing timing concerns and his commitment to his then-club, Borussia Dortmund. Reflecting on the offer, Klopp acknowledged the honor but emphasized his loyalty to Dortmund and the importance of completing his responsibilities before considering other opportunities.


Had Klopp accepted the offer from Manchester United, the football landscape could have been vastly different, with David Moyes ultimately appointed as Ferguson’s successor, a tenure that lasted only 10 months. Klopp’s decision to stay true to his principles and commitments has undoubtedly shaped his remarkable journey as a manager and endeared him further to Liverpool fans, who are grateful for what might have been a missed opportunity for their rivals.
