Liverpool Football Club Manager Klopp set to leave at the end of the Season

By Durrell Namasani

Football fans in Malawi who support Liverpool football club in the English Premiership have woken up to the news that Manager Jurgen Klopp has announced he is leaving the club at the end of the season.

Klopp has explained he is “running out of energy”.

“I will leave the club at the end of the season,” Klopp said in an emotional video posted by Liverpool. “I understand that it’s a shock.”

Klopp confirmed he had told the club’s bosses about his intention to stand down back in November last year.

“When we sat there together talking about potential signings, the next summer camp and can we go wherever, the thought came up, ‘I am not sure I am here then anymore’ and I was surprised myself by that. I obviously start thinking about it.”

Klopp has won six trophies with Liverpool, including the Premier League title in 2020 and the Champions League trophy the year before.

Liverpool currently lead the Premier League and reached the Carabao Cup final in midweek, while they are still in the Europa League and the FA Cup.

Klopp had signed a two-year extension to his contract at Anfield in April 2022, which was scheduled to keep him at the club until 2026.
