Jürgen Klopp To Step Down As Liverpool Manager At End Of Season

Jürgen Klopp has stunned Liverpool and the world of football by announcing he is to leave the club at the end of the season. The 56-year-old attributed his shock decision to “running out of energy”.

Klopp has been Liverpool’s manager since 2015 and is under contract until 2026 but, in an announcement via the club’s media channel, has revealed he will stand down two years early.

The news will come as a devastating blow to Liverpool supporters – who idolise the charismatic German – and also to the players and the owner, Fenway Sports Group, whose appointment of the former Borussia Dortmund coach transformed the club’s fortunes.

Klopp was appointed in October 2015 and his contract was due to run until 2026.

He won the Champions League in 2019 before leading Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years in 2019-20.

Liverpool has won every major honour since the German took charge of the Reds.


Klopp guided Liverpool to their sixth European Cup in 2019 when they beat Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid.

They followed that up with victory in the Uefa Super Cup and the Fifa Club World Cup and, most significantly, the Premier League title the following season.

Liverpool won a domestic cup double in the 2021-22 season and narrowly missed out on a quadruple as they were pipped by Manchester City on the final day of the Premier League season and lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid in Paris.

The Reds failed to win any major silverware last season but are in contention for four trophies this term. They beat Fulham on Wednesday to reach the Carabao Cup final.

Liverpool insist no one has been approached about the possibility of replacing Klopp but the former midfielder Xabi Alonso, who has guided Bayer Leverkusen to the top of the Bundesliga, is likely to be under consideration.
