Get back to BVB? That's how the red coach responds

Hans-Joachim Watzke launched Jürgen Klopp's return campaign in the summer of 2018, but has resigned.

Klopp didn't know "how serious this moment is, but then I realized he wanted to be more willing to react to me."

"I would not have forgiven myself"

At this time, BVB was behind the mixed season: Peter Bosz and Peter Stöger left two Borussia Dortmund coaches ahead of time. Before taking on current coach Lucien Favre in the summer, Watzke tried his luck with Klopp. However, it was the Champions League that made it to the final with Liverpool (defeat to Real Madrid), and the departure from the red was also caused by the contract until 2022.

"I knew Jürgen would tell me he was in Liverpool. He had always fulfilled his contracts, so yes, but if you wanted to go new ways and have to break new spaces at BVB, I should have at least asked Jürgen if he could imagine "says Watzke, BVB's managing director. "I didn't expect it at all, but I wouldn't forgive myself for not asking him at the moment."

Klopp can imagine the return

By the way, despite his huge success in Liverpool, Klopp can imagine a return to Dortmund in time.

"As a rescue ambulance, if the club really needs help – why not do that? It's great that I still have the opportunity," says the 52-year-old, but limits: "But I keep it seems like it can't happen, but I don't want that big to warm things like in Dortmund must always be something new. "

Klopp describes his time at Borussia between 2008 and 2015 as "a wonderful time in his life, and I don't know if you can top it, and if you could, it would reduce the value of seven years."

With BVB, Klopp has won a total of two championship titles and once the DFB Cup.
