Jurgen Klopp's Agent Warns 'Don't Underestimate The Weather's' Impact On Manager's Future
The effects of global warming could help Liverpool to keep Jurgen Klopp, with the manager's agent warning the German could look for a warmer climate.
Donald Trump and others might not be convinced that global warming is an issue for the world to worry about but it might be one that Liverpool fans have to worry about.
According to Klopp's agent Marc Kosicke, the weather could be one thing that makes the German decide to leave the Premier League. Speaking to DAZN, about his client's future, Kosicke said, "We will see where the journey is going. Jürgens contract is still valid until 2022 and it is an open secret that the club would like to extend prematurely. But we still have a little time for that.
"One has to wait and see how everything develops and whether climate change also brings better weather to England or only to Germany.
"At least you should not underestimate [the bad weather]."
Right now things are great for the former Borussia Dortmund manager as the Reds' went five points clear of the chasing pack with their win against Newcastle United on the weekend.
It seems unlikely that the manager is going to leave Anfield any time soon, and certainly the suggestion is it won't be before 2022 but fans will be wary of Klopp potentially leaving for warmer climates.
That could interest both Real Madrid and Barcelona, with the two Spanish super clubs being linked with a move for Klopp to take over as manager in AS today.
Speaking about wanting to work in a good environment, Kosicke added, "Jürgen is not just interested in the win next Saturday. It is also about how the club is perceived and that everyone has a good working environment. The joy of daily work is the basic requirement for this."
The environment in the red half of Merseyside is looking pretty good right now. The win against Newcastle, coupled with losses for Manchester City and Leicester City, left the European champions five points clear of Pep Guardiola's side in second after just five games.
Liverpool start the defence of their Champions League title on Tuesday, when they play hosts to Napoli, who they also faced in last season's Group Stage.
They also face Red Bull Salzburg and Genk as they try to make it through to the knockout stages.
