On April 21st, a day after Manchester United went down 2-0 to David Moyes’ former employers Everton on what must have been one of the Scotsman’s darkest days of a torrid 10 months in charge, strong rumours began circulating that Moyes was on the verge of losing his job after officially failing to achieve Champions league qualification.

There haven’t been many nights quite like it and Borussia Dortmund were savouring it. They might still fail in their quest for a second European Cup but Dortmund’s players, fans and their extraordinary manager will always have this game, a testament to the metamorphosis of a club in financial ruin only eight years ago. Remaining on the field with his players, Jürgen Klopp was jumping around in delight, a happiness which for so long looked as if it was going to elude him. The post match media commitments would have to wait, as his players climbed the barricades of the stands, he looked around in surprise and relief, marveling at what he had helped build.
