Jurgen Klopp reveals why he decided to leave Liverpool
The supporters of Liverpool Football Club received the saddest news that they never anticipated anytime soon following the announcement of Jurgen Klopp's exit from the club by the end of this season ( 2023/24).
The German international announced the news on the official website of Liverpool on Friday, January 26, 2024. According to Jurgen Klopp, this is the most difficult decision he had to take following his relationship with the club.
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.”
He was appointed as the manager of Liverpool on October 8, 2015. The club has won the UEFA Champions League, Premier League, FIFA Club World Cup, FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Super Cup, as well as the FA Community Shield since he joined the club.
Klopp's assistant managers Pepijn Lijnders and Peter Krawietz, as well as the development coach Vitor Matos, will also vacate their positions at the end of the season.
