Jurgen Klopp TEAMtalk

Jurgen Klopp will definitely see out his contract at Liverpool as he has “not finished with his work” at Anfield, according to his agent.

Klopp’s success at Liverpool has been remarkable, turning around their fortunes in the five years he has been at the helm.

The German coach’s style of play has vowed the Anfield crowd and there has been substance with the style. Klopp has the Champions League trophy and and Premier League crown, as well as the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup.

This season though their title defence has been disastrous, with their 68-match unbeaten run at home being followed amazingly by six straight Anfield defeats.

That has left the Reds well off the pace and into sixth in the table, leading to questions over Klopp’s future.

Klopp quickly shut down talk of replacing Joachim Low as Germany coach after the Euros this summer. The German coach quickly made it clear he was not available for the job soon to be vacated by Low.

And his agent Marc Kosicke says Klopp will not be departing the club this summer. In fact Klopp will see out the full term of  the contract he signed in December 2019, which runs until 2024.

Asked if there was a back-door open, Klopp’s agent told Sport1: “No. If Jurgen says that so clearly, then he will stand by it. Besides, he’s not finished with his work in Liverpool.

“There is no back door open because Jurgen still has a three-year contract with the Reds. He made this very clear so that there would be no room for speculation.”

 

 

Asked if Klopp will definitely fulfil his contract, he added: “Yes. Definitely.”

Klopp the man to steer Liverpool back to success

Klopp retains the support of Liverpool owners FSG, as per The Times.

FSG see Liverpool’s current downturn in form as an anomaly and believe Klopp will lead them out of it.

Liverpool have fallen way off in their title defence and are now battling to even secure European football for next season.

But Klopp will still be the man to oversee that, as he looks to restore them to their previous levels.

He did get them back on track on Monday night with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Wolves.

“It’s not about being Liverpool on a duller night, it’s about being Liverpool and being ready for fighting with all we have for a result. That must be possible even on nights when we are not at our absolute best,” said Klopp.

“I’m really happy about the performance, it’s all fine, but obviously the game, I think Robbo [Andy Robertson] called it an ugly three points and I called it a dirty three points. I couldn’t be more happy about these three points.”
