Jurgen Klopp Reveals What Could Lead Him To Quit Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp is just two years into his time at Liverpool and his contract says he has more than four years left at Anfield but the German has revealed what could see him leave Merseyside earlier than expected.
There was much fanfare when Jurgen Klopp joined Liverpool in October 2015. The former Borussia Dortmund manager had earned himself a reputation as one of the best managers in the world during his time in Bundesliga.
Not many can doubt that the German has improved the Reds since taking over from Brendan Rodgers, leading them back into the Champions League this season and into a Europa League final.

So much has he impressed in his relatively short time in England that the club have already extended his contract and he is due to stay at Anfield until the summer of 2022, because that's how football works of course.
Speaking ahead of his side's game against Arsenal on Friday night the former Mainz 05 manager revealed that winning a major trophy could even be the sign for him to leave Liverpool, saying:
"Stay here 20 years? Don't know, don't know. So far, after seven years I've felt maybe I should move on.A few weeks ago, I saw a statistic for the longest-serving coaches in the Bundesliga and I'm the record coach of two clubs - Mainz and Dortmund.

"It would be quite difficult to become the record coach at Liverpool. I don't know. As long as it works really, really well, I will carry on.
"That means as long as there is space for improvement because even if you win something, which everyone here is desperately waiting for, it could be the moment I say, 'OK, but now we have to leave.'"

Klopp did confirm that the point where he can no longer improve Liverpool isn't close yet, adding, "We will see. I don't feel I am close to that moment and everything is fine."
The two time Bundesliga winner went on to describe why having the longevity of Wenger was impossible now saying, "If anyone thinks they can make a similar career like Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger in clubs, I'm not sure it would be possible with the media of today."
