At the end of the season, Liverpool confirmed that their manager, Jurgen Klopp, will step down.
The club shared a brief statement on X, disclosing that the German manager conveyed his intention to leave to the ownership.
The statement read, “Jürgen Klopp has announced his decision to step down as #LFC manager at the end of the season, having informed the club’s ownership of his wish to leave his position in the summer.”
Despite Klopp’s contract originally extending until 2026, he notified the club of his decision to resign just two days after securing Liverpool’s qualification for another Wembley final in October 2015.
“I told the club already in November,” Klopp said in his interview
“I can understand that it’s a shock for a lot of people at 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.
Klopp steered Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years during the 2019-20 season, following their triumph in the Champions League the preceding year. Over his nine-year tenure at Anfield, he also secured victories in the FIFA Club World Cup, FA Cup, League Cup, and UEFA Super Cup, along with the FA Community Shield.
