Jürgen Klopp spoke about his future at Liverpool at the press conference before the match against Arsenal.
Frequently Klopp is associated with other clubs. Also about a commitment at Bayern has been speculated. Now, the coach himself has commented on his future and mentioned when he can imagine an end at Liverpool. His contract with the Reds runs until the summer of 2022.
When asked if Klopp could imagine being in a club for 20 years, like Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, he replied: "Stay here for 20 years? I do not know, I do not know. So far, I have always changed after seven years." At Borussia Dortmund Klopp was not fired in 2015, he has decided not to extend his contract after seven years with BVB. Prior to that, he also worked for Mainz 05 for seven years.
"I keep going as long as I can improve something"
"That means I will continue as long as there is something to improve," the coach said, adding, "If I win something, the moment might come when I say, okay, that's it. I stop." Liverpool are currently fourth in the Premier League. But league leaders Manchester City have 18 points more and winning the championship is almost impossible. In the Champions League FCL meets in the second round on the FC Porto.
Jupp Heynckes is not known to do the job on the sideline for another year. The successor to the 2018/2019 season has not yet been decided. Whether the FC Bayern Munich plays a role, if Klopp, for example, wins the Champions League? "As long as it works, and it works very, very well, I will continue." At Mainz and Dortmund, he has always found the right moment to switch, from his point of view. "If anyone thinks he could go down the same career as Arsene Wenger or Alex Ferguson, I would not be safe because of the media these days," he said of his colleagues' long tenure.
So it was neither an admission nor a refusal. Maybe Bayern fans will see Kloppo at some point, whether in the near or distant future.
