Jurgen Klopp has been tipped to ‘take a break’ from management at the end of his current Liverpool contract by journalist Paul Gorst.
Klopp last extended his deal back in December 2019, committing to the Reds until the end of 2023/24 season (via Liverpoolfc.com).
Should he see out that term, he will have been in the Anfield dugout for a period of nine years, which Gorst describes as an ‘eternity’ by ‘modern standards’.
Recapping Klopp’s success at Anfield
The German took over from Brendan Rodgers in October 2015 and led the Reds to the Europa League final in his first season.
He then took them back into the Champions League, and they made it to the showpiece at their first attempt. Real Madrid would run out 3-1 victors in Kiev, but Klopp’s side made amends by beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 12 months later to secure their sixth continental crown.
A first league title for 30 years followed in 2019/20, and last season he navigated an unparalleled succession of injuries en route to a third-place finish.
Fan feed LFC Transfer Room relayed Gorst’s comments, and here’s how supporters reacted.
