Jurgen Klopp’s future at Liverpool has been the subject of scrutiny for much of this past week. The German got tongues wagging after suggesting his successor should be Reds legend Steven Gerrard.
According to reports the Liverpool board is now fearing an approach from the German national side for Klopp.
Whatever anyone says, the Liverpool boss will not be leaving Anfield anytime soon and here’s why:
Three more years
The 52-year-old manager is contracted to the club until 2022, with talks about extending that deal currently ongoing. Three years is a long time in football and anything can happen. Fenway Sports Group have been relentless in their efforts to retain Liverpool’s top talents and that will surely continue as they look to secure the coaching staff for the foreseeable future.
The world’s best
Liverpool and Klopp currently have one of the best teams in football. After spending so long putting together this perfect team, why leave now? The Reds boss gets to work daily with elite level players capable of winning every competition they take part in.
He would be foolish to leave them now and Klopp is certainly no fool.
More trophies to win
Lastly and, in my opinion, the most important factor is that the job is not done. After putting together this world-class side Klopp is only now reaping the rewards. With the seven-year trophy drought finally over the Reds can move forward and complete the job by winning the Premier League.
Until he does that, Klopp’s job at Liverpool is not complete and he will know it.
