Jurgen Klopp

Klopp’s Liverpool stint

Jurgen Klopp took the reins at Liverpool back in October of 2015, shortly after parting ways with Borussia Dortmund.

The German inherited a squad that, at the time, wasn’t exactly viewed as being of ‘top-four’ caliber.

However, after several years of investment, Klopp has managed to turn the Reds into one of the most formidable sides in not only England, but all of Europe.

Liverpool missed out on their first-ever Premier League title by a single point last year, though Klopp nevertheless guided his side to a 6th Championship League title with a victory over Tottenham.

Then, in 2019/20, Klopp and co. finally ended Liverpool’s 30-year wait for domestic glory.

The Merseyside outfit notched a club-record 99 points in the Premier League, the second-highest total in the history of the competition, to secure the English top-flight crown.

The Reds have since kicked off the current season in typically entertaining fashion, with a 4-3 victory over Leeds at Anfield.

Klopp’s plans for life after Liverpool

And though Klopp doesn’t appear to be keen to leave Anfield anytime soon, he has recently been discussing his plans for life after Liverpool

Klopp signed a new deal back in December, that tied him down until 2024.

Now, when asked where he sees himself in four years, the German stated that if he doesn’t sign a new deal with the Merseysiders, he will take at least a year off before taking a new job:

“A lot of people ask me this question. I have never heard someone ask Pep Guardiola about that but his contract ends next year.

“I’ve got four years left which feels like an eternity in football. A lot can happen during this time. I would assume that in four years I will think about whether to renew or not.

“If I don’t renew, I’ll go on holiday. When I leave Liverpool, I won’t take a new job the next day. That’s for sure. I will take a one-year break after Liverpool.”

Tsimikas returns to training

In other Liverpool-related news, they have been handed something of a boost on the personnel front.

Konstantinos Tsimikas is, to this point, Liverpool’s only summer addition. However, the left-back did not feature at all in the Reds’ season opener vs Leeds.

The reason for this looked to be because he had tested positive for Covid-19 earlier in September.

Now, though, ahead of Liverpool’s upcoming clash with Chelsea, Tsimikas has been pictured in training on Wednesday afternoon:
