Jürgen Klopp leaving Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has revealed his decision to depart from Liverpool at the conclusion of the 2023/24 season. Since joining the club in 2015, Klopp has guided the Reds to triumphs in the Premier League, Champions League, and both domestic cups. Currently, his team holds the top position in the league. Klopp shared his reasoning, stating, “I know that I cannot do the job again and again and again and again,” as conveyed on the club’s website.

The surprising declaration signifies the conclusion of Klopp’s eight-and-a-half-year tenure as a manager at Anfield. Klopp is set to be remembered as one of the greatest managers in Liverpool’s history, notably steering them to their inaugural Premier League title in the 2019/20 season. The German tactician also achieved Champions League triumph in the preceding season and secured additional honors, including the FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.

Here are his exact words:

“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. After the years we had together and after all the time we spent together and after all the things we went through together, the respect grew for you, the love grew for you and the least I owe you is the truth – and that is the truth. I told the club already in November. I have to explain a little bit that maybe the job I do people see from the outside, I’m on the touchline and in training sessions and stuff like this, but the majority of all the things happen around these kind of things.”
