Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has dropped a bomb about his future at Anfield. The German has said that he could exit the club in season 2021/22 after his contract at the club expires.

Klopp has become an influential figure at Merseyside after guiding the Kop to Champions League victory last season and missing out on the Premier League title by a point. The Fenway Sports Group, who own Liverpool, are keen to tie him down to a new contract after signing him from Borussia Dortmund in 2015.

Klopp also didn’t rule out the possibility of taking a sabbatical after ending his Anfield stint as he said,

“It looks like it. Who can now say if he can give it his all in three years’ time?” he told Kicker when asked about taking a sabbatical.”

“If I decide for myself that I can’t go on anymore, I’ll take a break and in that year I’d have to make a definite decision [over my career].”

“I have absolute energy, but I have one problem; I can’t do ‘a little bit.’ I can only do ‘all or nothing.”

“But the chances are very high that my energy levels will go up again [after a year’s break], and that I can then do the job the way I want to.”

Should he leave the club, former keeper Jerzy Dudek believes Steven Gerrard is the right man to succeed Jurgen Klopp. He said,

“When I was in Liverpool recently, it was no secret that Steven is the man and indeed, only candidate for replacing Klopp when he decides his time at Anfield is over.”

“Everyone knows that sooner or later the great captain will return.”

“He is ideally suited to it because he was a great leader and as a captain, he brilliantly managed our dressing room.”

Liverpool will look to continue their 100 per cent record in the Premier League this season as they face Burnley next weekend.
