Jurgen Klopp has appeared to leave the door open for his next job after announcing his departure from Liverpool.
On Friday morning, Liverpool confirmed that Klopp will leave the club when the 23/24 season ends.
Joining Klopp, assistant managers Pepijn Lijnders, Peter Krawietz, and elite development coach Vitor Matos will also leave their roles.
Despite saying he is running out of energy, Klopp has appeared to refuse to close the door on management completely.
According toThe Athletic’s James Pearce, Klopp said: “If you ask me, ‘Will you ever work as a manager again?’ I would say now no.
“But I don’t know obviously how that will feel because I never had the situation. I definitely know that I will never manage a different club in England than Liverpool.”
During his time with Liverpool, Klopp was often linked with the Germany manager role, something that could potentially tempt him back into the dugout.
Klopp also revealed that he told the club of his decision back in November.
He said: “I told the club already in November. I have to explain a little bit that maybe the job I do people see from the outside, I’m on the touchline and in training sessions and stuff like this, but the majority of all the things happen around these kind of things. That means a season starts and you plan pretty much the next season already.
“When we sat there together talking about potential signings, the next summer camp and can we go wherever, the thought came up, ‘I am not sure I am here then anymore’ and I was surprised myself by that. I obviously start thinking about it.”
Klopp added: “It didn’t start [then], but of course last season was kind of a super-difficult season and there were moments when at other clubs probably the decision would have been, ‘Come on, thank you very much for everything but probably we should split here, or end it here.’ That didn’t happen here, obviously.
“For me it was super, super, super-important that I can help to bring this team back onto the rails. It was all I was thinking about. When I realised pretty early that happened, it’s a really good team with massive potential and a super age group, super characters and all that, then I could start thinking about myself again and that was the outcome. It is not what I want to [do], it is just what I think is 100 per cent right.”
