Big bang: Klopp is leaving Liverpool at the end of the season

German coach Jürgen Klopp is leaving Liverpool FC after the end of this season. The top English football club announced this on Friday. The 56-year-old has been a coach at Liverpool since 2015 and his contract with the Premier League leaders runs until mid-2026. With the “Reds” he won the Champions League title in 2019 and the Premier League championship the following year.

“I understand that this is a shock for a lot of people at the moment when you hear it for the first time, but I can explain it,” Klopp said in a club statement. He loves the club, the city, the fans, the team and its employees. “But the fact that I still make this decision shows you that I am convinced that I have to make it,” Klopp added.

The fan favorite explained that he was losing his strength. He's still doing well at the moment, but: "I know that I can't do the job again and again and again and again." He owes everyone the truth. “And that is the truth,” said Klopp. Klopp helped the club achieve new sporting prosperity and won the English championship again in 2020 after a long break. The “Reds” are currently league leaders with a five point lead over defending champions Manchester City, but have also played one game more.

Klopp has recently been repeatedly referred to as the German national coach. When signing Julian Nagelsmann, who will look after the DFB national team at the home European Championship, Klopp said again in September that he was currently not available for the position at the German Football Association.

Klopp began his coaching career in Mainz in 2001 after his professional career and led the club into the Bundesliga. After seven years at FSV, he moved to Borussia Dortmund and became champions twice and DFB Cup winner once with BVB. He also left his post at Westphalia after seven years in office.
