Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has recently been interviewed with German magazine Stern and he’s declared he ‘wants to finish his career at Liverpool’. Let’s just repeat that, Jurgen Klopp wants to stay at Anfield for life!!! Truly amazing news…
I for one am so excited about the dynasty Klopp could potentially create.
Different relationship in Germany..
Klopp’s interviews in Germany are a lot more relaxed than in England. It certainly seems he has a different relationship with the too. Often saying things he quite probably wouldn’t say in England.
I’m sure most Liverpool fans will agree that he can stay at Anfield for as long as he wants to….we won’t be asking him to leave that’s for sure.
“The fantastic thing about the English is that they just accept you as you are, even me”
Where do i still want to work?
Do i want to manage anywhere else..? NO
“I asked myself, ‘Where do I still want to work?’ rather than ‘What do I still want to win?’ and couldn’t think of many places.

“Do I want another club in Germany? Nope. In England? Nope. In Asia, Russia or the United Arab Emirates? Nope, nope, nope. And then I thought that I am already at the right club and ‘Why should I worry about how long I am here for?’
“If I am at the end of my career and have managed only three clubs then at least they were great clubs.”
Let’s not forget Dortmund and the love of their fans..
The 2 other clubs being Main and Dortmund. Both clubs he achieved idol status where all the fans loved him.
I remember his leaving video to the fans at Signal Iduna Park.
Truly amazing…raw emotion.
Klopp acknowledges he has a lot of work to do..

He has looked at the Academy. This has been streamlined. They are working well with the youngsters and ensuring they are playing the same way as the 1st team now. The continuity will mean little or no adjustment when they make the step up.
Klopp watches the ‘Futures group’ on a regular basis. His profile alone will ensure all players step it up to impress.
It will be an interesting transition. I’m not sure that modern football will allow another ‘long term’ manager like Sir Alex Ferguson. Arsene Wenger is a long timer….but look how his fans have turned. Should Klopp stay for that long, he will need to ensure it has been successful. Success is now measured so many ways. For the time being we’re happy with growth…maturity and seeing our players develop.
Next season we’ll want the title.
The potential is there. The best fans in the world. Best manager. Best backing….and let’s not forget the best, most atmospheric stadium – Anfield. The heart of football.
