Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp to leave at the end of the season

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has announced that he will be leaving the club at the end of the current season. 

Klopp, who has been at the club since 2015, Friday, January 26, 2024, informed the club's ownership of his decision to leave his position when the 2023-24 campaign comes to a close. 

He attributed his decision to "running out of energy,” and he “wants everyone to pull together in an attempt to write another successful chapter in his team's history." 

“I can understand that it’s a shock for a lot of people in this moment when you hear it for the first time,” Klopp said in an interview on the website of the Premier League leaders.

The news comes after eight-and-a-half years at the helm – and with four trophies still to contest before the campaign is up.

”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 would 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,” he said

On the reason he is leaving, the German said ”But in the end, I have to because one thing I am really convinced of [is] if you have to make a decision like that, it is better you do it slightly early than slightly too late. Too late would have been absolutely the worst thing to happen [if], I don’t know, next season in September I realised, ‘Oh my God, that’s it – I cannot do it anymore’ and then we are in the middle of a season and everything.”

Liverpool are five points clear at the top of the Premier League and the 56-year-old will be hoping to go out on a high by winning the title again.
