3 years left

Jurgen Klopp has distanced himself from taking the place of Joachim Low as Germany manager, following the announcement earlier today that he is to step down after the Euro 2020 tournament this summer.

Klopp was inevitably and directly asked the question during his press conference ahead of their second leg “home” tie with RB Leipzig tomorrow evening in back in Budapest, which hosted the first leg.

Klopp also said on the matter;

“I have three years left at Liverpool. It’s a simple situation; you sign a contract and you try to stick to that.”

When asked about tomorrow night’s opponents, whom they hold a 2-0 lead over, he said he was “happy to have this opportunity”

The Champions League of course offers a respite from the their current woes in the Premier League and also the game offers a match away from Anfield where they have lost a previously unthinkable 6 games in a row.

Klopp said of his side’s chances in the Champions League:

Dutch International Georginio Wijnaldum also spoke at the press conference and was asked about his own future at the club.

He is of course now in the final months of his contract, with no deal in place. Having played over 220 games for the Reds since 2016 and establishing himself as a major part of Klopp’s team, the club will be hoping he stays.

We will have to wait and see if he does or doesn’t and how Liverpool finish the season may impact his decision.
