Heading Liverpool since 2015, Jürgen Klopp already has plans to leave the team. The German coach wants to return to his home country when his contract at Anfield ends. With the challenge of building a dynasty in Liverpool, Klopp is already beginning to envision a future far from the Reds. Asked by SWR Sport how long he wants to stay in England, the coach said: “Four years in Liverpool.”
These four years are precisely the years remaining in Klopp’s contract with Liverpool, which ends in mid-2024. And asked if he wants to return to his native country, the German did not hide this desire. “I definitely want to live after my career. Most likely in Mainz,” said Klopp.
The Premier League title crowned Klopp’s successful work at Anfield. In the last 13 months, Liverpool won the Champions League, the Club World Cup, and the English Premier League. Despite the desire to return to Germany, the 53-year-old coach does not rule out staying in charge of the Reds any longer. “In five years the world can be very different.”
