Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he plans to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the 2023/24 season.

Klopp has transformed the Reds into Champions League and Premier League winners since his 2015 arrival.

Indeed, Liverpool have become arguably the most consistent team in the Premier League, losing only three games in two seasons.

Klopp was rewarded for his efforts in December with a new deal at the Anfield helm which will extend his tenure with the Reds to nine years, his longest reign at a single club.

However, speaking to SWR Sport, the German insists he will be ready to move on by the end of his contract.

The source translated parts of the interview, conducted in German, with Klopp saying he wants four more years at Anfield.

Klopp then said he wants a sabbatical year away from football, before having the first opportunity to do “what I want. Perhaps a club, a team, or nothing.”

He added: “But in five years the world can look very different again.”

Liverpool won the title courtesy of Manchester City’s defeat to Chelsea last month. The Reds could still beat City’s record of 100 points, but Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Burnley cut their maximum potential haul to 102.


Captain Jordan Henderson will lift the title when Liverpool host Chelsea next Wednesday, although official public celebrations have been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Klopp promised, however, that Liverpool’s celebrations will be “crazy” when the time comes.

“The moment we can do that again, we want to celebrate the title,” he said. “Even if that is a little strange, if you celebrate another title several months later.


“But Liverpool is an exceptional club, we will surely get something done. We’re going to try to celebrate the title in a crazy way. We want to celebrate life.

“People can now plan longer so that they can be there. Maybe we can make something out of it that hasn’t existed before.”

Liverpool’s next game sees them face Arsenal at The Emirates on Wednesday.
