Jurgen Klopp to leave Liverpool at end of season

Liverpool have announced that manager Jurgen Klopp is to leave the club at end of season.

The German has been in charge of the Anfield club since 2015 and guided Liverpool to the Premier League title in 2020, having landed the Champions League the previous season.

Klopp has stated personal reasons for leaving at the end of the upcoming season, stressing the aspiration to live a “normal life”.

I came here (to Liverpool) as a normal guy, I am still a normal guy, I just don’t live a normal life for too long now,” said Klopp, speaking in an interview on the club’s social media channel.

And I don’t want to wait until I am too old to have a normal life, and I need, at least, to give it a try at one point to see how it is.

“Will I miss it? Well I never really had it before so I need to give it a try, and it’s the right moment for me and the right moment for the club, because I can’t do the job next year as I did it before.

“Then I am not the right one anymore.”

“I tried to describe it already, and I had to explain it to Ulla (Klopp’s wife) clearly,” Klopp continues. “And I tried to explain it, like I am a proper sports car, not the best one, but a pretty good one, can still drive 160, 170, 180 miles per hour, but I am the only one who sees the tank needle is going down.

“The outside world doesn’t see that, that’s good, so you go as long as you have to go, and then you need a break, and that’s exactly what I know I have to do.

“But nobody has to worry until the end of the season. I know I will be fine until then.”
