I was having a debate with a SPURS fan at work today. He was looking forward to when Pep and Klopp will move on in the next 2-3 years as he thinks they will then take over as the top team.

Anyway, it got me thinking about how you see a manager move from a club and he takes a lot of staff with him or the new man coming in gets rid of them.

Do you think that the set up we currently has is like that or do you think that it is moving towards the old days where pretty much it is only the manager moving on?

I think the set up we have is great and obviously one day Klopp will leave, but it would be a shame if the rest isn't kept in place for the next guy to come in and just take over from where Klopp left off (with maybe a tweak or two) .

What does everyone think?

If it was easy as that, it would be a great idea, but what separates the great from the good is that ‘x factor’ that not many managers have. Of course, they also must be good managers in the conventional sense with tactics, training and all that stuff, but for intangible reasons it would be impossible to have a ‘Klopp team’ without Klopp himself. He caries around that infectious aura that makes people want to do better, try harder and generally give their absolute maximum. Am not sure exactly how important that is to the teams results, but it’s possible that without his character, we wouldn’t be doing quite so well.

It will be interesting to see how long it takes the team to lose that mentality when (and I truly dread the day) he does leave.

Brilliant post, Nick. I remember Mou after the Barcelona Remontada on BEIN Sport, saying that that result was all about Klopp. He said it had nothing to do with schemes, tactics, formations etc. That it was more about belief, determination, never giving up and all the stuff that Klopp possesses as a person and how that makes players want to exceed their limits just for him. Will another manager be able to do that even if Pep Ljinders (his trusted assistant) got the job? Very interesting indeed.

I see Pochetinno leaving before either Klopp's or Guardiola's 2-3 years. And it's not a given that his successor will be better than Poch and make it first to the finish line. He's been at Spurs for 4 years now with the club stuck in a top 4 position with not much confidence for improvement. I think the calls from La Liga will be too strong to ignore.

Spot on ArAy1969. I don't have any sources or anything but I expect Pochettino to leave at the end of this season.
