Jurgen Klopp has reiterated he intends to leave Liverpool when his deal expires and may quit management for good after a year-long sabbatical.
The 53-year-old has won the Premier League, Champions League, Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup in five seasons at Anfield and is under contract until 2024.
Klopp’s stock is at an all-time high after ending Liverpool’s 30-year wait for top-flight success but he will not sign a new deal and may step away from the sport entirely.
“I’ll take a year off and ask myself if I miss football. If I say no, then that will be the end of coach Jurgen Klopp,” he told Sport Buzzer.
“If one day I am no longer a coach, there is one thing I will not miss: the brutal tension immediately before the game.”
Liverpool are back in pre-season training following a shortened end-of-season break and return to competitive action in just three weeks’ time.
But despite the limited time off, Klopp is confident his players will be ready to defend their Premier League title.
