Klopp unimpressed as Man Utd contract left in front of him after match – Daily Star

The peculiar situation arose following a PR stunt involving American rapper and YouTuber iShowSpeed. He filmed himself being handed a fake United contract.

Klopp, whose team had just been defeated by a goal in the 120th minute, walked in to find the counterfeit contract on the bench. His confusion was evident as he wondered how it had ended up there and if it was some sort of jibe.

At that time, the Merseysiders were still competing on three fronts, having already won the Carabao Cup, but failed to maintain an extra-time lead, resulting in a dramatic knockout by their arch-rivals. iShowSpeed had previously played for the YouTube All Stars during their exhibition match against the Sidemen at London Stadium in September of the previous year.

Earlier this year, Klopp dropped the bombshell that he’ll be leaving Liverpool at the end of the season, sparking a frenzy about his next move. The charismatic manager enjoyed an epic stint with the Reds, and he’s taking time away from the game before deciding what his future holds.

Back when Klopp was the hotshot at Borussia Dortmund, Sir Alex Ferguson had him on the radar as a potential heir at United. Fergie was eyeing retirement and hoped to hold talks with Klopp about taking over the reins at Old Trafford.

Despite the honour of such high recommendation, Klopp wasn’t tempted to step into the legendary Scot’s shoes at the time. Klopp has since opened up about the encounter, admitting: “We spoke.

We spoke not a lot but, for me, it was a lot. It was a big honour, the whole talk, to be honest.

But I could not leave Dortmund. You are in April and you are in the middle of planning for next season.

You have this player and this player who are coming but then you are not there anymore? That doesn’t work.

Not in my life.” He also added: “I didn’t hear about a real offer [from United] but, if there was, I could not have done it.

I first had to finish the job with Dortmund and then think about other things. Meanwhile, Liverpool’s future beyond Klopp is looking clearer, however, with Arne Slot in talks to take the job.

The Reds are in negotiations with Feyenoord over a compensation agreement. *Where do you think Jurgen Klopp will end up next?
