Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp revealed on Monday that he expects to take a break from coaching once his time as manager of the Merseyside outfit elapses.
Jurgen Klopp joined Liverpool in 2015 and is under contract until 2022. He has gone on to win the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup since then.
His side also finished as runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League last season. In a chat with Germany’s Kicker magazine, he was asked if he would consider a sabbatical after his time with Liverpool. He replied:
“It looks like it. Who can now say if he can give it his all in three years’ time?
“If I decide for myself that I can’t go on anymore, I’ll take a break and in that year I’d have to make a definite decision [if he wants to continue at all].
“I have absolute energy, but I have one problem: I can’t to ‘a little bit.’ I can only do ‘all or nothing.’
“But the chances are very high that my energy levels will go up again [after a year’s break], and that I can then do the job the way I want to.”
It can be recalled that Klopp spent some time with Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga where he won 2 league titles and a DFB Pokal trophy. He also reached the 2013 UCL final where his side lost narrowly to Bayern Munich.
The German will be looking to ensure that he wins the Premier League with Liverpool, as the domestic title has eluded the Reds since 1990.
Currently, Liverpool are top of the Premier League after 3 games, and are two points above title contenders and defending champions Manchester City.
