Jurgen Klopp, winner of the English Premier League with Liverpool FC after 30 years of waiting, is never banal, both when he trains his players, and even when he speaks to the media. In a long interview, the German manager left several doubts about his future as a manager.
A career full of successes which, however, according to Klopp himself, could be interrupted at the end of his adventure with Liverpool, whose contract will expire on 30 June 2024. Klopp said: "I have no plans beyond that date.
When I started training, I said to myself, Ok, now you have 25 years of hard work waiting for you. I was seven and a half years at Mainz, seven years at BVB Borussia Dortmund and, after my contract with Liverpool has expired, 23 and a half years will have passed.
I don't see myself on the bench until a certain age." A concept expressed in the past by jurgen Kloop, even when he had been asked to sign a life contract with the English club. Over the years Klopp's fear is that he will not be able to live his role in the passionate way with which he approaches this profession at every training session.
Jurgen Klopp about his career
So here is Klopp who instead of celebrating his triumph thinks of retirement. Although, as the manager himself explained, when it is time to quit, it will be far from easy to say enough: "I hope to quit when I am still healthy and to be able to greet everyone, giving way to the youngest.
My the plan is to say one day 'Hi everyone, I love you, it was great to be a coach, but now don't call me for anything related to football.' My life is too beautiful: I am 53 years old, I am healthy, I'm in the best club in the world and I make a lot of money.
I love my job, but I know I won't miss it. " Before doing any kind of thought about the farewell, however, there are at least four other seasons to live on the Liverpool bench. And if the results continue to be those obtained in recent seasons, it will be really hard to convince the Reds fans to do without a club legend like Jurgen Klopp.
The German manager, in three years at Liverpool, played the 2018 UEFA Champions League final by losing against Real Madrid CF, won the 2019 UEFA Champions League against Tottenham Hotspurs and won the English Premier League 2020.
