Jurgen Klopp Confirms Plan To Leave Liverpool

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren

Newly crowned English champions Liverpool confirmed Friday that English midfielder Jordan Henderson will miss the last four fixtures of the Premier League due to a knee injury. Klopp has been at Liverpool since October 2015 and is planning to take a sabbatical after his departure from Merseyside.

In June, the former Southampton star admitted it had been hard settling for a place as a bench warmer during Liverpool's Premier League title-winning campaign.

Despite often refusing to be drawn on his long term future, Klopp has acknowledged that his time at Liverpool will be done following the conclusion of his current deal.

Klopp signed a new contract in December 2019 which will keep him at Anfield until the end of the 2023/24 season.

Klopp concedes that anything is possible once his association with Liverpool comes to a close, with the opportunity there for him to work in another club role, a national team post or "do nothing for a year".

Lovren has made just 15 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions this season and is interested in a move to get more game time under his belt.


"Definitely to live, after my career". "But in these moments, I think you should stick with the team even more, to show your quality even if you are not on the pitch with the first XI".

Klopp revealed he wants to then "do nothing for a year", adding: 'In five years the world can look very different again'.

Klopp also outlined his intention to celebrate his side's Premier League triumph with the fans properly once measures associated with COVID-19 are lifted.

"Even if that is a little odd, if you celebrate another title several months later".

"I'm sure the lads will ensure we finish the season off on a high".
