Former Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says Jurgen Klopp is the perfect manager for Barcelona.

The German announced in January that he will leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

While Klopp is expected to take some time away from the game, he has not intimated that he will retire.

Klopp has vowed not to manage another Premier League club, and his ties to Dortmund could rule out a move to Bayern Munich.

Therefore a move to Italy or Spain appears the likeliest destinations if Klopp wants to return to club management.

And Aubameyang, who played under Klopp at Dortmund and joined Barcelona when he left Arsenal, says the German is perfect for the Nou Camp.

‘Klopp gives you everything, energy, he has won great titles, he is a good coach,’ said Aubameyang.

‘If there is a chance for Barça he is a good option, I was very comfortable with him in Dortmund. It would be incredible if he could come.’

Xavi will leave the club at the end of the season after announcing his departure last week.

The club hope to appoint a replacement before the season is finished.
