‘I will not leave Liverpool’ – Jurgen Klopp drops hint about his future

By | January 25, 2023

Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he will not give any thought to resigning from his position as Liverpool manager for the foreseeable future.

The 55-year-old has been in charge of the Merseyside giants since October 2015, taking charge of 409 matches and securing a legacy alongside the club’s legendary figures.

Klopp has delivered seven pieces of silverware at Anfield, including the 2019-20 Premier League trophy and 2018-19 Champions League crown, but the club are currently enduring one of their poorest campaigns in years.

As a result of back-to-back league defeats to Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion, Liverpool find themselves down in ninth position in the standings, 10 points adrift of the top four.

While there is a Champions League last-16 tie against Real Madrid on the horizon, Liverpool are already out of the EFL Cup and face an FA Cup third-round replay with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday evening.

Given the length of time at the club and the level of his achievements, there have been suggestions that Klopp may soon decide that now is the right time to end his hugely-successful stint.

However, the German feels differently, responding to reporters at a press conference on Monday that he will remain as Liverpool boss until he is informed otherwise.

As quoted by BBC Sport, Klopp said: “Either the manager’s position changes or a lot of other things change. So, as far as I am concerned unless someone tells me I will not go.”

“So that means maybe there is a point where we have to change other stuff. We will see that, but that is something for the future. Like summer or whatever. Not now.

“I have space and time to think about it. We have to play better football now.”

Since the resumption of action since the World Cup, Liverpool have recorded just two wins from six matches in all competitions, those victories coming against Aston Villa and Leicester City.

Although Liverpool put together a four-game unbeaten streak before the break in action, seven matches have now passed by without a clean sheet.

Should Liverpool overcome Wolves on Tuesday, they will face another trip to Brighton in the FA Cup fourth round, while matches with Chelsea, Wolves and Everton are scheduled to be their next three opponents in the top flight.
