Simon Jordan has predicted that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could leave if things don’t improve at the club shortly after the start of next season.
Talking on TalkSport, the pundit claimed that the Reds could sack Klopp if he is unable to improve things at Liverpool what is set to be the German coach’s worst season yet in charge at Anfield, with Jordan saying: “I think if Klopp starts next season and gets to October with Liverpool in the same position, he’ll be gone.”
With Liverpool sat eighth with ten Premier League games left to go, there’s a growing chance that the Merseyside club could miss out on European football altogether for next season, let alone a spot in the UEFA Champions League, a competition Klopp has qualified for for the last six years.
However, with pressure building for Klopp at Liverpool, there is going to be an expectation for the former Borussia Dortmund manager to turn the club’s fortunes around next season, with a mass squad overhaul already in the works behind the scenes.
Indeed, whilst there is a chance that next season could be Klopp’s last at Liverpool, the German coach is also the best-equipped manager in Europe to turn the Reds back into the winning machine that have famously become in recent years, with the Anfield boss likely to relish the challenge.
Klopp will not leave Liverpool until he has done everything possible
Klopp not working for Liverpool feels as weird a reality as Pep Guardiola not being Manchester City manager or Mikel Arteta no longer being at Arsenal, which is why it is likely that the Reds’ boss will only leave if he has done everything possible to get the club back to their best.
There will be a day when Klopp does leave Liverpool, yet for many supporters and pundits, that time is still some years away, especially with the German having a contract that keeps him at Anfield until 2025, something that could easily be renewed, as well.
