Christian Falk has claimed Jurgen Klopp will leave Liverpool in 2022 to become the manager of the German national team. That’s his opinion, but it’s not mine.
The 53-year-old manager has never spent more than seven years with a single football club and with Klopp now heading into the second part of his fifth year at Liverpool, there are some fans that are growing anxious.
Since his appointment in 2015, Klopp has been a terrific coach and has revolutionised the club.
It might be presumptuous of me but I think it’s fair to suggest that Klopp has never had such an amazing relationship with a football team. Since day one, the Black Forest native has loved the city of Liverpool and its inhabitants have reciprocated that love.
Even the bitter Everton fans that loathe Liverpool Football Club and its success admit that Klopp has done wonders for the city. Furthermore, Klopp has been charitable towards food banks and made a massive donation to the Sean Cox GofundMe alongside the Everton captain Seamus Coleman.
Jurgen Klopp will honour his contract extension until 2024
Klopp has made it clear from day one that he has no intention of breaking his Liverpool contract to leave and while there is a strong chance that the passionate manager will leave when his terms expire in 2024, he won’t be leaving anytime soon regardless of what Christian Falk believes.
Liverpool are top of the Premier League table again this season albeit only with a two-point lead. At this stage last season, the Reds were already eight points clear of Leicester and 11 clear of Manchester City.
The Reds face Newcastle United this evening and can go five points clear until the teams below play their games. Klopp will want his players to bounce back from a poor display against West Brom at Anfield.
The trip to St. James Park will be Liverpool’s final game of 2020.
