Jurgen Klopp blocked from rectifying his 'biggest ever Liverpool mistake' as contract decision made
| Last updated
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been blacked from rectifying his biggest-ever mistake after a contract decision was made.
Since then, Klopp has completely transformed Liverpool from a midtable team to a team that has won every single major trophy.
During an interview back in November 2022, Klopp revealed the biggest mistake of his managerial career.
Speaking to Korean news outlet KBS News, the Liverpool boss said: “One of the biggest mistakes in my life is not signing Son Heung-min.
“Outstanding player. He is fantastic, a sign of Korean football and one of the best strikers in the world.”
Now, Klopp will again be blocked from rectifying what he described as his biggest mistake.
This is due to the fact that Son Heung Min is set to take with his current club, Tottenham Hotspur.
According to The Telegraph, Son has the option to trigger a one-year extension in his current deal, which is set to expire in the summer of 2025.
After losing Harry Kane in the summer, club chairman Daniel Levy will be making Son’s contract a priority, especially after Ange Postecoglou’s promising start as Spurs boss.
Speaking about snubbing Klopp, Son recalled: “I wanted to stay in the Bundesliga. Leverkusen and Dortmund wanted me.
“Both teams play in the Champions League but I thought Dortmund would use rotation more than Leverkusen.”
He added: “That's why I chose Leverkusen over Dortmund. It's really important to play regularly at my age.”
