Jurgen Klopp has revealed he could retire from management at the end of his current Liverpool contract which ends in 2022.
The maverick German led Liverpool to a record-breaking season last year – winning the Champions League and finishing second in the Premier League on 97 points.
But despite the euphoria experienced last season Klopp could call it a day in 2022 which would signal the end of seven years at the club – the same amount of time he spent with former teams Mainz and Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool fires past Saints
Having been named Sport Bild’s 2018/19 manager of the season, the 52-year-old gave a glimpse into his future plans.
Speaking to Gianluca Di Marzio, Klopp said: “I hope to continue like this, but in two, three years I don’t know what may happen.
“Maybe I’ll retire.
“It doesn’t necessarily mean it will happen, but if that were the case, you wouldn’t be surprised.”
Klopp was also asked if after 2020 what he would like to do – manage Germany, Bayern Munich, Liverpool or Borussia Dortmund.
“In the order I would like to do it,” he said. “First – the national team. Then Bayern, then back to BVB and then Liverpool for life.
“I have no idea, I really do not know what.”
Klopp’s Liverpool side sit top of the Premier League with two wins from two games against Norwich and Southampton as well as lifting the Super Cup with a penalty shootout victory over Chelsea.
