Jurgen Klopp hints at retirement after Liverpool

ANI  |  Johannesburg [South Africa] 

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hinted that he could retire from management once his time at Anfield comes to an end.

Klopp said he doesn't see himself coaching many clubs, adding that Liverpool could be his last before retirement.

"I will not have been in charge of 10 different clubs once my managerial career is over. There is a not insignificant chance I will have coached three clubs. I would say it is very unlikely I will become a club-hopper all of a sudden," Sport24 quoted Klopp as saying.

"On the contrary, it is always quite easy for me to fully commit to what I am doing because they are often long-term projects," he added.

Klopp missed out on winning silverware in his first year at Liverpool as it lost out in both finals of the EFL Cup and FA Cup, but he remains determined to add trophy to the Anfield cabinet before the end of his contract in 2022.

"If I fulfill my contract with Liverpool then there is a good chance I will have won something here. I could be in an uncomfortable situation if we do not win anything. People expect Liverpool to win trophies," he said.

The 49-year-old started his coaching career with Mainz and worked seven years at the Opel Arena before resigning from his post in 2008.

Klopp then joined Borussia Dortmund, where he won two back-to-back Bundesliga titles before stepping down at the end of the 2014-2015 campaign.
