Jurgen klopp has announced his decision to leave Liverpool by end of the current season.
Klopp revealed this while speaking to Liverpoolfc.com.
He said: “I can understand that it’s a shock for a lot of people in this moment, when you hear it for the first time, but obviously I can explain it – or at least try to explain it.
“I love absolutely everything about this club, I love everything about the city, I love everything about our supporters, I love the team, I love the staff. I love everything. But that I still take this decision shows you that I am convinced it is the one I have to take.
“It is that I am, how can I say it, running out of energy. I have no problem now, obviously, I knew it already for longer that I will have to announce it at one point, but I am absolutely fine now. I know that I cannot do the job again and again and again and again.
“After the years we had together and after all the time we spent together and after all the things we went through together, the respect grew for you, the love grew for you and the least I owe you is the truth – and that is the truth.”
Surprise Announcement Despite Good Run
The announcement came after Klopp helped the Reds to reach the Carabao Cup final at Wembley in midweek.
Also, the news came after eight-and-a-half outstanding successful years at the helm – and with four trophies still to contest before the campaign is up.
