  • Klopp has led Liverpool to four trophies

Jurgen Klopp has said he won’t miss the "brutal tension before the game" once he moves away from the sports. He also reaffirmed that he will leave Liverpool FC after his contract expires in 2024.

Klopp, who took over Liverpool’s charge in October 2015, has led the team to four trophies: Champions League, Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and Premier League.

Last year, Klopp signed a new deal that will see him at Anfield till 2024. While his job is not at risk with The Reds, he has promised to see through the contract. Since Klopp has had a great influence on the club, in a special gesture toward the German, the club has added a clause in his contract that will help the manager return to Germany on his terms.

In a conversation with German publication SportBuzzer, Klopp spoke about his future away from Liverpool. Klopp has decided to take a year’s break before taking up another project after Liverpool.

"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," added the 53-year-old boss.

When asked if there is anything he would not miss after retiring, Klopp replied, "If one day I am no longer a coach, there is one thing I will not miss: the brutal tension immediately before the game."

Liverpool recently ended their 30-year wait when they finally clinched their 19th league title, which was their maiden Premier League trophy. Speaking about his title-winning squad, he has assured The Reds fans that his team will return to action further improved for the 2020-21 season.

"The whole club is hot for the new season, we want to be even better. 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," added Klopp in the same interview.

Klopp and his boys currently are in Austria for their pre-season as the new campaign will start in less than a month.
