Football news LIVE: Man United appointment made, Klopp has exit plan, Arteta tactic mocked | Football | Sport

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made no secret that his time at Anfield will not last forever, opening up in recent years of his thoughts regarding an eventual exit. “I have absolute energy. But I have one problem. I can’t do ‘a little bit’. I can only do ‘all or nothing’,” Klopp told Kicker Magazine in 2019. “When I decide that I cannot do it any longer then I will take a break for a year.”

A year later he admitted he could return to Mainz in the future and even earmarked a leaving date. “Definitely to live, after my career. Most likely even to Mainz,” he explained to SWR Sport, adding he’d spend “four [more] years in Liverpool,” before heading back to Germany. “In five years the world can look very different again.”

Then Klopp later doubled down and conceded that he may retire upon leaving Liverpool and his impending one-year hiatus. “I’ll take a year off and ask myself if I miss football,” explained Klopp to SportBuzzer. “If I say no, then that will be the end of coach Jurgen Klopp. If one day I am no longer a coach, there is one thing I will not miss – the brutal tension immediately before the game.”
