“I will be leaving the club at the end of the season. » In a video shared on Liverpool FC social networks on Friday January 26, Jürgen Klopp announced that he would be leaving the bench of the northern England team. After nine seasons at the club, the German coach was keen to address Liverpool fans to detail the reasons for this surprise announcement.

“I can understand it being a shock. But I can explain it, or at least try. I love absolutely everything about this club, this city, our supporters, the staff… This decision shows you that I am convinced that it is the one I must take. I’m running out of energy. I figured I was going to have to announce it at some point. I’m doing well, but I know I can’t do this work again and again,” says the 56-year-old technician.

Jürgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool in 2015; the team was then rebuilding. Little by little, he managed to surround himself with one of the best teams on the continent. On the Reds bench, he participated in three Champions League finals, including a victorious one in 2019.

He won seven titles with the team, including the English championship in 2020, thirty years after the club’s last victory. The German could even bid farewell to the Anflied public with another success: current leader of the Premier League, Liverpool is still involved in the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League.
