BORUSSIA Dortmund have endured a disappointing campaign but former defender Ned Zelic has backed coach Jurgen Klopp to remain at Signal Iduna Park beyond the 2014-15 season.
Dortmund have flirted with relegation and face an uphill battle to qualify for Europe next season, while the German side crashed out of the UEFA Champions League last-16 to Juventus during the week, raising doubts over Klopp’s future at the club.
Some pundits and fans think it may be time for Klopp – who guided Dortmund to consecutive Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012, as well as the 2013 UEFA Champions League final – to take up a fresh challenge elsewhere, with the Premier League looming as a likely destination.
Klopp has been linked with moves to Arsenal, Liverpool and more recently West Ham as Premier League clubs attempt to prise the charismatic 47-year-old away from Germany.
