The majority of Liverpool fans have been completely captured by Jurgen Klopp’s charismatic nature and attack-minded tactics on the pitch.
So, when the German coach recently discussed his plans for when he departs Anfield for good, supporters were left sweating.
In an interview with Sky Germany, the 50-year-old revealed that he will take a year-long break when his time with the Reds is over, and that he may retire from management earlier than people would expect.
“It’s possible that I will end my career a lot earlier than coaches usually do. It’s very intense. I don’t want to die on the coaching bench. After Liverpool I will for sure do a one-year break. That’s a clear agreement with my family.”
Klopp joined Liverpool in October 2015 on a three-year deal, replacing Brendan Rodgers, and in the following year he penned a six-year contract that will expire in 2022.
The former Borussia Dortmund boss is yet to win silverware with the Merseyside outfit, but he has an opportunity to change that as the club are potentially three games away from winning the Champions League.
Next Tuesday, the team, who ousted Manchester City in the final eight, will take on Roma in the first leg of the semi-finals at Anfield before heading to the Stadio Olimpico for the decider the following week.
Liverpool fans have been impressed by recent performances, so the idea of Klopp no longer being at the helm is an unfathomable thought for the majority of them.
