Jurgen Klopp’s final home game in charge of Borussia Dortmund

West Ham United still have Jurgen Klopp and early favourite David Moyes in their immediate frame and won’t make further moves on other managers until they know both are total non starters.

Our picture show the banner unfurled by grateful fans to the German on his last appearance before them recently.

The Hammers co owners have regularly declared they are determined to get the best and highest quality manager possible and refuse to move on a back-up list until they know the best around are “otherwise engaged.”

Klopp has been approached through middle men and as we have regularly reported remains a target.

And today the Telegraph reports that although Moyes has repeatedly stated that he wants to stay at Real Sociedad West Ham have not completely given up hope of hiring him.

Klopp took charge of Borussia Dortmund for the final time last weekend but made it clear he had no job lined up.

And the newspaper confirms our reports that the Irons were “hugely unfortunate” when the Rafa Benitez deal fell through when received an offer to succeed Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid.

 It means the Irons will now wait on Klopp, Moyes and even Carlo Ancelotti who could postpone surgery before turning to the likes of Marcelo Bielsa, Unai Emery, who has just retained the Europa League with Seville, former Besiktas coach Slaven Bilic and Swansea City manager Garry Monk.

The Telegraph confirm: “Several of those candidates have already been sounded out through intermediaries but none have been offered the job as yet.”

And significantly they declare: “West Ham have not set themselves a deadline to make an appointment but want to do so within the next two weeks as the club begins to re-shape its squad for next season.”

  1. Klopps managing them in the German Cup today isnt he.Wasnt his final game last weekend was it.H where are you.I need your expert german correspondant news,lol

  2. Forget about Klopp,he aint coming to us.Just a dopey dream 😉

  3. Klip Klopps Claret & Blue Army!

  4. If you believe the other media reports Klopp is not interested in us but wants the job at Liverpool.

  5. 1 there is no vacancy at Liverpool and it will cost them 6 million to sack Rodgers,
    2 the blokes wanted Real Sorry that’s gone
    3 he is not interested in us we are not big enough in his eyes Sorry H

  6. We seem to be considering so many different managers at this point it woN’t hurt us if we include Klopp and ask him again.
    I’m not sure the really big clubs will be interested right now. A difficult season at Dortmund and a lost cup final, on paper not too bad, but not impressive for the bif clubs
    If Klopp went to Barcelone, PSG or Man U I can see him do a Moyes: Breaking under the intense pressure at a massive club.

    Klopp strikes me as a manager who would do better at a club like ours where he can overachieve, make people sit up and take notice, not at a big club where trophies are expected rather than hoped for.

  7. I personally don’t want Klopp, but I’m in agreement that he will set his sights at a bigger club. Given the choice of any of those that have been linked to us I want Biesla, Unai or Frank DB…..

  8. Hamburg you are getting transfixed on this transfer,it is not going to happen I hope it’s a smoke screen why we are deep in negotiations with someone else and is keeping it quite until it is finalised,
    Now if that is Klopp H good for you,
    Sorry mate not trying to break your bubble

  9. I’ve said from day one Ancholotti and Klopp were just pipe dreams. I think this whole “lack of language” is bollox concerning Bielsa, it didn’t stop Pottachino at the Jews and they’re season went fine (****ing hurt to say that). Moyes and Billic can do one, Bielsa, FdB or Emery are realistic targets who have shown some interest at least. Don’t get me wrong I’d love Klopp in the final season but the odds aren’t looking all that good
