Jamie Carragher's stunned reaction to Jurgen Klopp announcement as Liverpool legend makes surprise admission

Jamie Carragher's stunned reaction to Jurgen Klopp announcement as Liverpool legend makes surprise admission

Jurgen Klopp has announced his departure from Liverpool.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has reacted to the shock news that Jurgen Klopp will leave the club at the end of the season.

On Friday morning, Klopp sent shockwaves through the entire football world by announcing he would step down as Liverpool manager at the end of the 23/24 season.

Klopp was appointed back in 2015, replacing Brendan Rodgers after a poor run of form.

Since then, the German has taken Liverpool to new heights as he led the club to the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, FA Community Shield, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Reacting to the news, former Reds defender Carragher wrote on social media: “This news was always going to be a body blow to the club whenever it came. I just thought it would be another few years away.

“What a manager, what a man, let’s go out with a bang Jurgen!”

This season, Liverpool have had a brilliant start to the campaign.

Liverpool are currently top of the Premier League, five points ahead of Manchester City and Arsenal.


Explaining his decision to leave the club, Klopp said: “I can understand that it’s a shock for a lot of people in this moment, when you hear it for the first time, but obviously I can explain it – or at least try to explain it.

“I love absolutely everything about this club, I love everything about the city, I love everything about our supporters, I love the team, I love the staff. I love everything. But that I still take this decision shows you that I am convinced it is the one I have to take.”


He added: “It is that I am, how can I say it, running out of energy. I have no problem now, obviously, I knew it already for longer that I will have to announce it at one point, but I am absolutely fine now. I know that I cannot do the job again and again and again and again.

“After the years we had together and after all the time we spent together and after all the things we went through together, the respect grew for you, the love grew for you and the least I owe you is the truth – and that is the truth.”
