TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Jurgen Klopp will not cancel his plans to step down from Liverpool when his contract expires in 2024. This was reported by The Guardian on Saturday, March 5, 2022.
The German signed a five-year contract extension in 2019. But Klopp has often said he will not stay at Anfield after his contract expires.
Klopp later clarified his comments saying he ‘don’t know’ whether to extend his contract.
Speaking to reporters at a press conference ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash with West Ham, Klopp said he is currently looking to run his contract until it runs out. “The plan, right now, is to get to 2024 and ‘thank you very much,'” he said.
Previously, he had said that his plans were still the same and had not changed. “I realized when I gave an answer I couldn’t take it back, but I wasn’t in that situation,” he said.
“The plan is still the same, nothing has really changed. If I decide to leave in 2024, it will have nothing to do with the quality of the team: ‘Oh my God, I have to train them’ or ‘Oh my God, I better stop coaching them’. It has nothing to do with it,” said Jurgen Klopp.
He explained that what the coaching team is currently doing is a long-term project. According to him, Liverpool should be better, especially when he is gone or gone.
“That’s the plan. That’s what we’re working on,” said the 54-year-old manager.
He said it didn’t matter how long he would stay at Liverpool. Because the most important thing is what the team is doing up to that point.
Jurgen Klopp has always indicated he will take a year’s break from football after his time at Liverpool runs out. Although offers to train other clubs are certain to come.
