Liverpool fans on the alert as Jurgen Klopp has set a date for when he will be leaving the Reds. The German manager has revealed that he intends to sit out his current contract until 2024 before he will head home to Germany to either take on a club there or enjoy an early retirement from management.
The 53-year-old Klopp signed a new contract with Liverpool in 2019 but has already revealed this will be his final contract at the club. Under Klopp the Reds have won the Champions League and World Club Cup in 2019 and most recently they ended their 30 year drought by winning the Premier League.
With Klopp now facing the challenge to build on that Premier League crown, the German reveals he will oversee the project, but has also been looking ahead in his career. “Four years in Liverpool,” Klopp said when asked how long he would stay in England. After that he wishes to return to Germany: “Definitely to live, after my career. Most likely even to Mainz.”
Klopp says everything is still open for the moment he leaves Liverpool in four years. He could accept another role at the Reds, take on the German national team, step in at a Bundesliga side, take a sabbatical for a year or even decide to step out of the game completely. “In five years the world can look very different again”, he added.
