Liverpool Jurgen Klopp To Step Down At The End Of Season


Well it is breaking news!, Jurgen Klopp will be leaving the Anfield side at end of the season.

The rude shock news has really rattled the Liverpool fans since it broke out. And as Michael Owen said about the news: All great things inevitably come to an end but I thought it would be two or three years down the line. Memories to last a lifetime. One of the greatest managers ever."

Klopp was appointed in October 2015 and his contract was due to run until 2026.

He won the Champions League in 2019 before leading Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years in 2019-20.

"I told the club already in November," said 56-year-old Klopp, who has announced his decision with his side top of the Premier League.

"I can understand that it's a shock for a lot of people in this moment, when you hear it for the first time, but obviously I can explain it - or at least try to explain it.

"I love absolutely everything about this club, I love everything about the city, I love everything about our supporters, I love the team, I love the staff. I love everything. But that I still take this decision shows you that I am convinced it is the one I have to take.

"It is that I am, how can I say it, running out of energy. I have no problem now, obviously, I knew it already for longer that I will have to announce it at one point, but I am absolutely fine now. I know that I cannot do the job again and again and again and again."

Klopp's win percentage of 60.7% across all competitions is the highest of any Liverpool manager with 50-plus games in charge of the club.

"Let's squeeze everything out of this season and have another thing to smile about when we look back in the future," said Klopp.

"If you ask me, 'Will you ever work as a manager again?' I would say now, no," added Klopp.

"But I don't know obviously how that will feel because I never had the situation.

"What I know definitely - I will never, ever manage a different club in England than Liverpool, 100%. That's not possible."
