'Extension incoming': Some Liverpool fans spot a sign Klopp could stay beyond 2024
Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after Jürgen Klopp shared some interesting comments about his future.
What’s the story?
Well, Klopp was asked what he plans to do once he leaves Anfield.
Speaking to RTL, the German said: “When the contract in Liverpool ends, whatever (year) it will be, I first have to find out what it is like to lead a ‘normal’ life again. A year off. I’ve never had that. But I’m deeply relaxed there.”
After hearing his comments, a number of Liverpool fans on Twitter have been discussing one specific remark with excitement.
Klopp effectively says ‘whenever’ his contract ends, which is interesting as he surely knows when his current deal expires – 2024.
For the 54-year-old to leave the door open like this suggests he isn’t ruling out an extension to his Liverpool career beyond 2024.
Understandably, the Liverpool fans are excited. Klopp has captured the Anfield faithful’s hearts and imaginations since arriving in 2015.
Forget Philippe Coutinho. Forget Luis Suarez. Forget Fernando Torres. When Klopp leaves Liverpool, it will hurt supporters greatly.
Liverpool have to start making the most of Jürgen Klopp
Make no mistake about it, managers like Klopp don’t come around very often.
It could be years until Liverpool find another world-class manager like him.
As a result, FSG have to start taking advantage of having arguably Europe’s best coach at the helm.
If Klopp does leave in 2024, and Liverpool haven’t spent big to capitalise on the success overseen by Klopp, it will be a wasted opportunity.
The Reds will be kicking themselves if they spend Klopp’s remaining years punching below their weight and being content with a top four place.
Liverpool are more attractive that they’ve been for years. Now is the time to be signing the likes of Jude Bellingham, Kylian Mbappe and so on, not Adrian and Takumi Minamino.
Let’s see what the Liverpool fans on Twitter have been saying about Klopp’s interesting comments…
