Jurgen Klopp’s incentive to leave Liverpool ‘headache’ and wife Ulla’s exit stance emerge
There is 30 per cent probability that Liverpool manager will see out the remainder of his three-year contract at Anfield, the report adds.
Klopp’s incentive to leave in the summer of 2022 is that plans would fall into place for him.
The 53-year-old could take a six-month sabbatical, like he has always talked about doing, before taking the national team reins.
He would then become Germany boss on the back of the 2022 World Cup, so would be at the helm for the Euros in 2024, which his home nation will be hosting.
According to Bild, the coronavirus pandemic has caused something of a ‘headache’ for Klopp, so it is not out of the realms of possibility that he could leave in the summer of 2021.
But the report claims it is more likely he will stick around for at least one more season.
One saving grace for Liverpool fans is the fact that the German’s wife, Ulla, is said to be very happy with her life on Merseyside.
And this could play a huge factor in Klopp remaining in the UK and completing nine whole years at Liverpool – the longest stint in his career as a boss.
Klopp won the Premier League title with Liverpool last season, a campaign after he clinched a first Champions League since 2005.
The support for Klopp from Liverpool fans and owners Fenway Sports Group means there is a reported one per cent chance the German will be sacked.
