After delivering Liverpool’s sixth Champions League title in their history, Jurgen Klopp has well and truly silenced the doubters over his questionable trophy record.
The German’s surprisingly poor run in cup finals came to a superb end when the Reds overcame Tottenham 2-0 in the showpiece finale at the end of last season.
Klopp’s future at Anfield is tied down for the following three years, but speaking on the club’s pre-season tour, the Liverpool boss refused to be drawn into what his future could hold after that.
As reported The Telegraph, the former Borussia Dortmund manager insisted that he would honour his current contract at Anfield, but felt that with three years left to run, it was too early to be concerned about whether he would be staying at the club beyond that.

After James Pearce tweeted an abbreviated version of Klopp’s comments on his long-term future, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter.
Many supporters of the Merseyside club revealed that they would be heartbroken at the prospect of Klopp potentially leaving Anfield, and hoped that the German would sign a new deal to tie him down for even longer.
Some however raised the possibility that the end of Klopp’s existing contract could nicely tie in to Reds legend Steven Gerrard potentially taking over his boyhood club.
Check out some of the reaction of Liverpool fans below:

Only stevie G can replace him.. But im not so sure about the result. Stevie need to learn fast and have his own dna style of play.. Its more to sentimental value if he take over tbh..
