Jürgen Klopp was announced as Liverpool manager in October 2015. Since his appointment the German has transformed the club from top to bottom, returning the Reds to their former glories. Sadly, all good things must come to an end eventually, Jürgen Klopp has revealed that he plans to move to Mainz when he leaves Liverpool.
When Jürgen was appointed Kopites were still licking their wounds from yet another close ran title race. In 2013/14 Liverpool had come close to the Premier League title but ultimately fell just short, finishing sixth the following season.
In six years at the club the gaffer has taken his side to three European finals, winning one of them and a Premier League title to go with the Club World Cup.
The club has never looked in a stronger position in the modern day. The Reds seem poised to build a dynasty in the coming seasons with the Klopp/FSG model proving to be a class apart from the domestic competition.
The boss signed a contract extension last December, keeping him at the club until 2024. In a recent interview with SWR Sport in Germany Klopp was asked about his plans when his contract expires, he told the outlet:
“Definitely to live, after my career. Most likely even to Mainz.” The boss went on to confirm he will spend a further “four years in Liverpool.”
What RTK has to say
We can’t expect the man to stick around forever, no matter how much we’d want him to.
It is only natural that Klopp would want to return to Mainz, where he spent his entire professional playing career, where he launched his managerial career.
We can only hope that the boss doesn’t take over a rival club, be that a side at home or abroad. There have been plenty of suggestions that he can take the Bayern Munich job whenever he feels like it, though whether or not he will have the energy for that after nearly a decade with Liverpool remains to be seen.
