Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he will take a year out of football when his contract expires in 2024. The Reds manager extended his contract last December and will remain at Anfield for a while yet.
Klopp has revealed after that it could be the end of him as a football manager if he enjoys his time away from the game.
The German made history in helping Liverpool to their first Premier League title this season.
That means the Reds are currently the English, European and World champions.
But Klopp has admitted he sees himself having a break from football when his time at Liverpool comes to an end.
Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp has confirmed when he will leave the club
Klopp told SportBuzzer: “I’ll take a year off and ask myself if I miss football. If I say no, then that will be the end of coach Jurgen Klopp.
“If one day I am no longer a coach, there is one thing I will not miss: the brutal tension immediately before the game.”
Klopp also looked ahead to the new campaign and what he expects from his Liverpool squad.
“The whole club is hot for the new season, we want to be even better,” Klopp continued.
“We want to chase the opponents and the ball over the entire field, continue to be a super unpleasant team that is not fun to play.
“We’re not defending any titles, we want to get new ones, we’ve only just started winning.”
Some encouraging news for Liverpool is that Klopp planned on taking 12 months out when he left Dortmund in 2015.
In the end the opportunity to manage the Reds was too much to turn down and he replaced Brendan Rodgers in October of the same year.
Liverpool will certainly hope Klopp remains and they can assert their dominance over the rest in England for years to come.
Meanwhile, the Reds manager has opened up on new signing Kostas Tsimikas.
“Kostas is a signing which just shows what we are looking for, what we need,” he told the club’s official website.
“I think the left-back position was now not a position where the people out there would have thought, ‘We need another player’ and stuff like this.
“It worked out pretty well, Millie played there from time to time but we cannot take any risk or we should take as less risk as possible.
“Our full-backs in the way we play are so important with the skills they have, the speed they have, the crosses they bring in and stuff like this.
“When I saw Kostas the first time, I thought, ‘Is it possible to get somebody like him?’ Meanwhile, he’s not the most experienced player because he started a little bit later with a proper career.
“But in the last two or three years, he’s really right on track and then has started building his career obviously.”
