Jurgen Klopp would suit Premier League: Arsenal's Mertesacker

London: Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker on Friday said Borrusia Dortmund coach and fellow German Jurgen Klopp to be well suited to take coaching in the English Premier League.
Klopp who will end a seven-year stint with Dortmund at the end of the season, has been frequently linked with EPL clubs including the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal and more recently with defending champions Manchester City.
"His passion would fit and to see him in England would be very interesting. It would be nice if a German coach would take the challenge of working in the Premier League," Mertesacker was quoted as saying by BBC.
Klopp has taken Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles and the UEFA Champions League Final in 2012-2013, but his side is currently 10th on the league table.
"Everyone has their philosophy and Jurgen Klopp has proved he's top level and can teach a lot. It's not so good for Dortmund that he is leaving, but hopefully one day he will manage abroad," Mertesacker said.
"I am curious what happened to him because he was an outstanding figure in the Bundesliga in the last couple of years and always a title contender. It will be interesting to see what happens in the summer," said the defender.
