Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp announced that he will step down from his role at the club at the end of the current season. Explaining that he feels that he is “running out of energy”, the German manager said he will not manage another club or country for at least a year.
“I can understand that it’s a shock for a lot of people in this moment, when you hear it for the first time, but obviously I can explain it, or at least try to explain it,” Klopp explained in a video message. “It is that I am, how can I say it, running out of energy. I have no problem now, obviously, I knew it already for longer that I will have to announce it at one point, but I am absolutely fine now. I know that I cannot do the job again and again and again and again.”
Klopp explained that he loves “absolutely everything about this club [Liverpool]” and that he will not manage another English club in the future, thereby rebutting rumors that he may return to the Premier League at some point.
