Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp claims he won’t leave the club before 2022

Klopp’s time at Anfield

Jurgen Klopp became Liverpool boss on October 8th 2015, taking over from Brendan Rodgers.

Klopp had a fairly successful debut season with the club, that so nearly ended in silverware.

During his first season at Anfield, Klopp would reach both the League Cup and Europa League finals.

However, Liverpool would lose both games, as Klopp’s record in finals continued to be pretty awful.

Since his first season, the German has slowly been improving his side, reaching the Champions League final in 2018.

Then, the 2018/19 season saw Klopp help Liverpool to produce some of the finest football in Europe.

Liverpool would miss out on the Premier League title by a point, despite earning an impressive 97 points in 38 games.

However, Liverpool would finally land their first trophy under Klopp this past season, beating Tottenham in the CL final.

Klopp staying for three years

After such a superb season, Liverpool fans will likely be keen to keep hold of Klopp for as long as possible.

Klopp’s current contract with Liverpool runs until 2022.

Now, in a recent interview, Klopp has spoken out about his current contract, claiming that he will not leave before it ends, which is in 2022:

“I will not leave before the contract is ending. That is my side. That is why a contract is important.

“We have enough time to make decisions in that department. There is no need to do it now. Three years is really a bit early to be concerned. It is just a contract.

“The owners like what I do; I like what the owners are doing. I love the team, they are brilliant. Melwood is sensational. I’m looking forward to going to [the new training ground in] Kirkby and all these things. There is always a step forward.

“We all want to keep the past and traditions and all that stuff. But there needs to be a step forward. It is important that is our attitude. You cannot make that step in three or four years by making sure that I stay until 2000 and something. It just makes sure that I will stay until then.” As quoted by the Telegraph.
