Jurgen Klopp, Man City and the Singpore maths

Jurgen Klopp shocked everyone who wasn't reading about it on Reddit at the time by announcing that he will leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season. Here's a video I made about it:

The popular WACKY ZANY German will step down at the end of the season because he cannot be arsed building an entire new squad again, especially since those in charge at Dortmund keep selling all of his good players.

He told a press conference:
"I always said in that moment where I believe I am not the perfect coach anymore for this extraordinary club I will say so.
"I really think the decision is the right one. This club deserves to be coached from the 100% right manager."
Meanwhile, in the city of Dortmund, the earth trembled as he hit Save Game. Just incase he gets bored with the new team he decides to go as:

What now for Klopp? If he wants to he can buy tickets to watch Chelsea, or perhaps he might decide to take the reigns at a club that will need a new manager soon... a sleeping, massively underachieving European giant. A team with a large budget that desperately needs to be rebuilt! A team... like Dortmund! No wait, I mean Man City. Or Arsenal. Do I mean Arsenal? I don't care.

Lots of people will say Klopp should take over from Arsene Wenger but if you take into account Dortmund's rapid descent to near relegation disaster this season - something that Wenger has never come close to - with a club that he's coached for seven years, I wouldn't be rushing for the champagne. Because I don't have any. And prosecco is cheaper too. Also nicer.

Anyway, my point is, have you ever been in control of a team on Football Manager and not had about 8 wonderkids coming through and a potential 5 transfer signings you know you can make? How much more different can that game really be to real life? I'll tell you how much: some. Some different.

Watch that video.
