Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he does not intend on managing another English club once he leaves Liverpool. The German boss revealed on Friday that he will be leaving the Reds at the end of the season after ‘running out of energy’ in the Anfield dugout.
In a shock announcement, Klopp revealed that he wanted to tell Liverpool supporters ‘the truth’ about his future and how he felt that he was running out of energy in Merseyside, despite leading the club to such an impressive start to the season.
The ex-Borussia Dortmund then explained that he does not intend on managing another club or country for at least a year, whilst also ruling out a return to the Premier League forever.
He told Sky Sports: “I need to find a different purpose as well, I need to have a look for it. If you ask me ‘will you ever work as a manager again?’, I would say now, no. But I don’t know obviously how that will feel as I have never had that situation.
“But I know definitely, I will never ever manage a different club in England than Liverpool, 100 per cent. That’s not possible. My love for this club, my respect for this club, the people, it’s too big, I couldn’t for a second think about it, there’s no chance. This is part of my family, we feel at home here, there’s no chance to do that.
“Will I work again? Of course, I know myself that I cannot just sit around but I will find something else maybe to do, but I will not manage a club or a country at least for a year. So that’s not possible, I cannot do that, and I don’t want to.”
