There is a lot Borussia Dortmund fans have to worry about these days, as their team is bottom of the league. Some even fear the departure of Jürgen Klopp, as the regular mechanisms of the football business would find their way eventually. But for all of those, we can assure that they don’t have anything to worry about – or at least not that.
After the 2-0 loss against Eintracht Frankfurt the Dortmund coach said: “I see myself here in full responsibility and as long as nobody comes and says ‘look, we have someone who can do it better’ I simply cannot go. There are no tendencies (to leave).” While Michael Zorc said: “We are 100% convinced, that we will get out of this situation with Klopp.” on the same evening.
One day later the Dortmund coach was invited as guest speaker on a PR event in Frankfurt and was quoted: “I’m not one who resigns. I’m all or nothing. In this moment I’m Borussia Dortmund. It’s like in a marriage – in good times as in bad times. As long as Dortmund wants this, I will do it. I’m a fighter and a better trainer than 2012, only the table doesn’t show that.”
And for everyone who still isn’t convinced, the press conference on Wednesday ahead of the Hoffenheim game should kill off any rest of doubt. Asked, whether he has given in some thought about ‘pulling the ripcord’, Klopp answered: “100% of what I do is I want to change this situation with everything that I’ve got. I’m convinced that’s the right way. I don’t entertain any thought for emergency-scenarios. I don’t need a vote of confidence, that is not the right moment. The team does.”
With that we think Kloppo has made it very clear that he has no intentions to leave and the board will never even consider letting go the man, who has acquired legendary status in Dortmund. And who could really even remotely replace Jürgen Klopp? —– Exactly.
